McDowell Institute for Teacher Excellence in Positive Behavior Support

McDowell Institute Impact…Making a Difference 2018-2019


There are many ways in which the McDowell Institute makes a difference in the social, emotional and behavioral well-being of students. One way this occurs is through the provision of training in empirically supported practices that help to build mental health literacy in order to address non-academic barriers to learning in PK-12 schools and across colleges and universities in the Commonwealth. Beyond training, the McDowell Institute also provides technical assistance and guidance to schools and community partners that are increasingly invested in school-based behavioral health.
