Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. become familiar with the intervention components of a program model for students with emotional and behavioral problems.
  2. learn about the reported feasibility of the program’s implementation across elementary, middle, and high school classrooms for students with severe emotional disturbance.
  3. engage in discussion about the implications of the study’s results.


Using data from a recent study, this presentation will provide school professionals with an overview of the various practical elements of a multi-component, school-based treatment program designed for students with severe emotional disturbance and explore the feasibility of its implementation. It is expected that participants will increase their general knowledge of empirically supported interventions for students experiencing emotional/behavioral challenges with consideration of what may be feasible for implementation.
