PI020: Behavioral Parent Training Groups in Secondary Schools

Thursday, February 20, 2014 9:00 AM–9:45 AM


This session will focus on one school psychologist’s experience with designing, implementing, and evaluating behavioral parent training groups in a secondary school setting. A discussion about the positive outcomes and likely pitfalls will be facilitated. The applicability and practicality of such work will be addressed. Practitioners will expand their knowledge about parent groups and leave with a more in-depth understanding of how such interventions can be improved and applied to their own practice.
