Self-regulated learning (SRL) is important to school psychologists because it facilitates well-being and academic achievement; however, teachers rarely utilize SRL practices. To best support teachers, it is important to understand what beliefs teachers hold that may serve as barriers to implementing SRL practices. This presentation examines the relationships between teacher reported barriers and the use of SRL supportive practices. Attendees will develop knowledge of common barriers that impede the implementation of SRL practices.
