Response to Intervention as a Vehicle for Powerful Mental Health Interventions in the Schools
Froiland, John Mark
Contemporary School Psychology, v15 p35-42 2011
School psychologists can work within a Response to Intervention (RtI) framework to increasingly promote the mental health of students. This article shares the unfolding of two composite case studies that exemplify how a practicing school psychologist can use a problem-solving framework to deliver effective mental health interventions to individual students. The first case involved an elementary school student who markedly improved in terms of on-task behavior, and the second case concerned a high school student who overcame school refusal and negative affect. The advantages of providing brief counseling and psychological consultation prior to a possible full evaluation or special education placement are discussed. (Contains 2 figures.)
