MTSS from a Social-Emotional perspective : How Evidence-Based Interventions Across Domains can Promote Positive Student Outcomes - This 6-hour workshop will provide school counselors with an evidence-based framework for organizing data-driven, comprehensive school counseling interventions across the three levels of the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS). School counselors will learn apply process and logic modeling to develop school counseling program goals, organize interventions, identify assessment points, and plan intervention evaluation.
