Strengthening the Administrator / Clinician Partnership

For Social Workers, Psychologists, Counselors & Administrators

The Midwest PBIS Network is excited to announce a learning and networking opportunity throughout the state for Clinicians and their Administrators. Join us for two days of partnering together to strengthen the data, systems, and practices in your school, ultimately impacting our youth and families. Together we will explore what is currently in place and working, what is in place and not working, and what needs to be put in place to help the whole staff more effectively support all our youth.

Will this be worth your time and your administrator's time?  Ask yourself the following questions.
  • Have you ever wished you had time to think through what your role could look like in your building?
  • Would you appreciate time with other clinicians who are looking at the future role of the clinician?
  • Have you ever wanted time to sit with your principal and make plans about your role?
  • Do you want to be recognized as a social/emotional leader in your building?
  • Would you like for every single person in the building to understand and take responsibility for the social/emotional well being of all children?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to join us!
