What Is the School Counselor’s Role in PBIS/RTI in the School Counseling Program?

School Counselors need a comprehensive plan and a systematic process for understanding their role and responsibilities within our school community. School counselors and the school counseling program are key in this process because of their focus on personal, social, emotional, behavioral, academic, and career skills needed for success. School Counselors need to understand how to prioritize their time so they can reach the student-centered standards that only they can offer all students while being a member of the PBIS/RTI support team.

PBIS Definition:
PBIS is a prevention general education framework that works for all students. Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a general term that refers to positive behavioral interventions and systems used to achieve important behavior changes. PBIS was developed as an alternative to aversive interventions used with students with significant disabilities who engaged in extreme forms of self injury and aggression.
PBIS is not a new theory of behavior, but a behaviorally based systems approach to enhancing the school’s ability to design effective environments that are conducive to quality teaching and learning. The National Education Association (NEA) views PBIS as a general education initiative, though its impetus is derived from the special education law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

RTI Definition
Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavioral needs. Response To Intervention is the practice of providing high-quality instruction and interventions matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make changes in instruction or goals, and applying child response data to important educational decisions.

The whole is equal to more than the sum of its parts. ~ Tommie R. Radd, PhD

Personal, social, emotional and behavioral skills are the only constant in every situation. The level of development of those skills determines if one will respond or react over time. — Tommie R. Radd, PhD

Remember:
The impact of Social Emotional Learning Programs is documented by recent research to increase academic
achievement test scores by up to 11 percentile points. The Systems approach demonstrates ways to create an inviting school climate while effectively meeting the learning needs for all students with an RTI process that addresses the needs of the whole child.

  • What Is The Impact on Students of Implementing A Developmental School
    Counseling System and Program?
  • What Are Three Things You Can Do Now To Integrate Ideas Discussed Today?
  • Joel A. Barker, Futurist

    Keynote address – Battelle for Kids Value-Added Conference, October 2006

    • School is a place that is a “life preparation center.”
    • Real live collaboration is 50% of all work in the real world.

    Invitational Education Formula

    Students can develop their spirit, purpose and potential when . . .

  • there is a plan for change that is an integral part of the day-to-day operation of a school
  • there is a conscious plan to support the self-concept development of all within a school
  • the perception of students, staff, and families regarding school relationships, procedures, and policies is communicated and modified when it is destructive
  • personal, social, emotional, and behavioral skills are taught
  • students provide ongoing feedback to educators as to their day-to-day experiences in school
  • there is an intentional process for consciously creating an inviting environment for all students
  • GWG Assessments Self-Concept Series Resources

  • ITS
  • CANA
  • Florida Key
  • Self-Concept Series
  • ISS (see IAIE Web Site)
  • Other System Assessment
  • Invitational Teaching Survey (ITS)
    A 43-question diagnostic class climate assessment, taken by students, which gives student input about their classroom experiences and whether they have a feeling of being “invited”; a diagnostic tool to involve students and get their input on ways to improve climate and school relationships; one indicator of ways to support staff growth experiences and plans; one way to observe and evaluate change at the end of a school year through pre-post assessment; the school climate assessment included in The Grow With Guidance® System.

    Children’s Affect Needs Assessment (CANA)
    A 42-question diagnostic curriculum assessment taken by students that provides student input into their classroom guidance curriculum activity selection; a diagnostic tool to involve students and create a sense of student ownership for guidance skill implementation and change (Note: ownership occurs when students “own” a problem and admit, recognize, and acknowledge personal needs and challenges that support assuming responsibility and commitment for change); assessment questions asked in the five essential learning strands of the curriculum of The Grow With Guidance® System; one way to observe and evaluate change at the end of the school year through pre-post assessment; the student curriculum assessment included in The Grow With Guidance® System.

    The Florida Key
    Many in education, psychology, sociology, and related fields have recognized the significant relationship between self-concept and school achievement. On the basis of available research, it now appears that students who doubt their ability to learn in school carry with them a tremendous educational handicap. The purpose of The Florida Key is to provide teachers, counselors, and related professionals with a relatively simple instrument designed to measure both inferred and professed student self-concept-as-learner. It provides teachers and related professionals insight into students’ perceptions of themselves as learners. The Florida Key identifies and measures selected student behaviors that are believed by classroom teachers to correlate with positive realistic student self-concepts in the area of school success.

    The Self-Concept Series is taught to all students.

  • All are important and valuable no matter what they think, say, feel, and do.
  • All show they are remembering their worth by making helpful choices toward themselves and others. They are responsible for helping not hurting self and others.
  • All are responsible for their choices. This accountability empowers all to make improvements because of their worth.

      A way of defining the classroom as a simulation in which students, pre-K-12 and beyond, learn, experience, and apply the essential skills needed for life; the comprehensive developmental guidance system creates a life lab in every classroom through which students develop a conscious and intentional frame of reference that can be applied throughout life.

      Theoretical Framework

      A few of the theories that Include Self-Talk/SelfPictures in addressing in the treatment process:

      1. Rational Emotive Therapy
      2. Adlerian Therapy
      3. Reality Therapy

      General – Universal Specific – Personal – Relevant To An Individual

      Self-Concept Series Talk Self-Concept Series Self-Pictures
      Step 1 "I am important and special." A self-picture that could accompany this Step 1 statement is a time or place that reminds the person of one’s personal worth just for being a unique person. It could be a picture of the person sitting peacefully, etc. Each person can choose a picture, which can be changed as desired.
      Step 2 "I help myself." A self-picture that could accompany this Step 3 statement is of a time or situation that represents a person helping him or herself. It could be an image of the person smiling in the mirror, acting in a helpful way, etc. Each person can choose a picture, which can be changed as desired.
      Step 3 "I am responsible for me." A self-picture that could accompany this Step 3 statement is of a time or situation that represents a person being responsible and accountable for his or her own actions. It could be the person following through on an assignment, apologizing for a mistake, etc. Each person can choose a picture, which can be changed as desired.

      My Personal Self-Talk/Self-Picture Plan Self-Talk/Self-Picture Plan Activity

      Completing the Self-Talk/Self-Picture Plan incorporates the process for addressing anxiety:
      My Personal Self-Talk/Self-Picture Plan

    We can create true democratic classrooms that insist ALL students be accountable and responsible. School environments need to be examples of democracy in action. – Tommie R. Radd, PhD

    Remember: The impact of Social Emotional Learning Programs is documented by recent research to increase academic achievement test scores by up to 11 percentile points. The Systems approach demonstrates ways to create an inviting school climate while effectively meeting the learning needs for all students with an RTI process that addresses the needs of the whole child.

    Personal, social, emotional and behavioral skills are the only constant in every situation. The level of development of those skills determines if one will respond or react over time. —Tommie R. Radd, PhD

    The Real Classroom

    Life Lab

    A way of defining the classroom as a simulation in which students, pre-K-12 and beyond, learn, experience, and apply the essential skills needed for life; the comprehensive developmental guidance system creates a life lab in every classroom through which students develop a conscious and intentional from of reference that can be applied throughout life.

    • School is a place that is a “life preparation center.”
    • Real live collaboration is 50% of all work in the real world.

    Students can develop their spirit, purpose and potential when . . .

    • there is a plan for change that is an integral part of the day-to-day operation of a school.
    • there is a conscious plan to support the self-concept development of all within a school.
    • the perception of students, staff, and families regarding school relationships, procedures, and policies is communicated and modified when it is destructive.
    • personal, social, emotional, and behavioral skills are taught.
    • students provide ongoing feedback to educators as to their day-to-day experiences in school.
    • there is an intentional process for consciously creating an inviting environment for all students.

    Response To Intervention (RTI) Definition

    Response To Intervention (RTI) is the practice of providing high-quality instruction and interventions matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make changes in instruction or goals, and applying child response data to important educational decisions.

    Assessments

    A 43-question diagnostic class climate assessment, taken by students, which gives student input about their classroom experience and whether they have a feeling of being “invited”; a diagnostic tool to involve students and get their input on ways to improve climate and school relationships; one indicator of ways to support staff growth experiences and plans; one way to observe and evaluate change at the end of a school year through pre-post assessment; the school climate assessment included in The Grow With Guidance® System.

    A 42-question diagnostic curriculum assessment taken by students that provides student input into their classroom guidance curriculum activity selection; a diagnostic tool to involve students and create a sense of student ownership for guidance skill implementation and change (Note: ownership occurs when students “own” a problem and admit, recognize, and acknowledge personal needs and challenges that support assuming responsibility and commitment for change); assessment questions asked in the five essential learning strands of the curriculum of The Grow With Guidance® System; one way to observe and evaluate change at the end of the school year through pre-post assessment; the student curriculum assessment included in The Grow With Guidance® System.

    Many in education, psychology, sociology, and related fields have recognized the significant relationship between selfconcept and school achievement. On the basis of available research, it now appears that students who doubt their ability to learn in school carry with them a tremendous educational handicap. The purpose of The Florida Key is to provide teachers, counselors, and related professionals with a relatively simple instrument designed to measure both inferred and professed student self-concept-as-learner. It provides teachers and related professionals insight into students’ perceptions of themselves as learners. The Florida Key identifies and measures selected student behaviors that are believed by classroom teachers to correlate with positive realistic student self-concepts in the area of school success.

    1. All are important and valuable no matter what they think, say, feel, and do.

    2. All show they are remembering their worth by making helpful choices toward themselves and others. They are responsible for helping not hurting self and others.

    3.All are responsible for their choices. This accountability empowers all to make improvements because of their worth.
