Social-Emotional-Behavioral Interventions Research Team  


The Social-Emotional-Behavioral Interventions team, led by Dr. Brian McKevitt, is dedicated to promoting the use of evidence-based programs for positive behavior change within schools. Students’ social-emotional competence and display of desired behaviors are critical to their success in schools. The focus of this team is to train educators to implement effective interventions and programs to increase their capacity for addressing social-emotional-behavioral concerns, thereby promoting the social-emotional and behavioral well being of students in schools.
