This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 5
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 1: Promoting Safe and Positive Schools

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. identify low self-control as a risk factor in behavioral, academic, social, and psychological areas of school adjustment.
  2. apply latent profile analysis to measure school climate as a multidimensional construct.
  3. explain the role of school climate as a moderator between an individual risk factor and their school adjustment outcomes.

Description

Low self-control has been identified as a risk for behavioral problems, but it can also affect different areas of adjustment. The current study showed that low self-control is linked with more negative outcomes in behavioral, academic, social, and psychological areas of school adjustment. Furthermore, results showed that various latent school climate profiles had protective or hampering effects in the relationship between self-control and school adjustment, providing possible intervention strategies for school psychologists regarding school climate.
