Role of Clinicians
Role of Clinician
During this session, participants will learn how to describe the changing role of clinicians within a multi-tiered system of support for social-emotional-behavioral health and wellness. This includes understanding how a clinician fits within the system and why it is important to consider changing how clinicians spend their time. Social workers, psychologists, counselors and other similar professionals can learn how to become a social-emotional leader within their school district; as well as support the capacity of all staff to become more confident and competent to address the needs of all students within the school community.
