11:00 a.m. – 11:50 a.m.

Regardless of the field, there is a consensus that collaboration leads to more effective communication, stronger and more sustainable relationships, reduced stress among stakeholders, and the attainment of goals that would otherwise not be possible. In the school setting, students experience better academic, social-emotional, and behavioral outcomes when schools, outside agencies, and families work together. The purpose of this presentation is to: (1) define and describe the nine core elements necessary for effective collaboration, and (2) to support school psychologists in effectively establishing true collaborative relationships within the school setting, even with the “toughest” of team members.
