C&C is easily integrated into existing universal interventions, such as PBIS and Early Warning Systems. This 2-day training for education administrators, lead staff, site coordinators, and mentors will provide skills and knowledge in how to start implementing C&C. Participants will gain an overview of C&C and its background; information on how to prepare their site to implement C&C; and the information, competencies, and skills needed to be an effective C&C mentor. Registration deadline: July 25, 2014.
