Pilot Study of the Mental Health Training Intervention for Health Providers in Schools (MH-TIPS)
Center for School Mental Health, University of Maryland School of Medicine
Sharon Stephan, Ph.D. & Jill Bohnenkamp, Ph.D.
The URP-IR was utilized to assess influences on intervention use of the Mental Health Training Intervention for Health Providers in Schools (MH-TIPS) during the initial pilot study conducted with 50 school health providers. MH-TIPS is a training and implementation support system for school health providers aimed at enhancing their competence in promoting student mental health and managing the needs of students with or at risk for emotional and behavioral difficulties that may interfere with learning. Pilot study results are forthcoming.
Training paraeducators to implement a group contingency protocol: Direct and collateral effects.
Maggin, D. M., Fallon, L. M., Hagermoser Sanetti, L. M., & Ruberto, L. M. (2012). Training paraeducators to implement a group contingency protocol: Direct and collateral effects. Behavioral Disorders, 38, 18–37.
This study examined the effects of an intensive training protocol upon the fidelity of paraeducator implementation of a class-wide group contingency intervention for students with EBD. Within this study, the URP-I was used to evaluate teacher and paraeducator perceptions of the intervention protocol’s acceptability. Results indicated that the protocol was perceived as highly acceptable, with a minimal perceived need for external support in intervention implementation.
