What works for whom, under what circumstances?
  • Moderated effects
  • Identify profiles of responders (and
  • Inform research on tiered interventions (RtI,
    PBIS) and adaptive or tailored interventions
  • Interventions that assign different dosages of
    certain program components across individuals,
    and/or within individuals across time, and the
    assignment of a particular level of dosage and/or
    type of treatment is based on the individuals
    values on variables that are expected to moderate
    the effect of the treatment component (Collins,
    Murphy, Bierman, 2004).
  • Contextual factors
  • Fidelity of implementation, school disorder

Looking inside the black box
  • Identifying mechanisms and testing the theory of
  • Know little about critical components of
  • Unpacking programs
  • Do components work independent of the package?
  • Ordering/sequencing
  • Program adaptation
  • Should we emphasize programs or frameworks/models
    (e.g., RtI, PBIS)?
  • Research approaches
  • Components analysis or factorial designs
  • What elements are hardest or easiest to

Model of the Integration Process
Rationale for Integrated Models of Prevention
  • Single interventions may not adequately address
    the underlying mechanisms contributing to the
    development of problem behavior.
  • Integrated models keep the unique strategies
    of each intervention model and merge those that
    overlap, resulting in a model that delivers a
    broader set of approaches simultaneously.
  • Through a shared conceptual framework and
    language, integrated models maximize students
    exposure to intervention processes.
  • Intervention elements are streamlined so that
    there is less repetition and duplication of

What is it going to take to do it well?
  • Implementation fidelity
  • Contextual influences (Domitrovich, Bradshaw,
    Poduska et al., 2008)
  • Support system
  • Coaching and on-site technical assistance
  • Models of coaching (e.g., Technical/Expert,
    Problem-Solving, Team-Building, Reflective
    Practice Denton Hasbrouck, in press)
  • Process for training and supporting coaches
  • Coaching as an adaptive/tailored process
  • Partnership
  • Models of partnership with teachers,
    administrators, district, state

What is it going to take to move it out?
  • Dissemination and Type II Translational Research
    (Spoth, 2008 Woolf, 2008)
  • What factors contribute to dissemination of
  • Cultural/political shift toward accountability
  • What makes programs attractive to districts,
    schools, teachers?
  • Theory, ease of implementation, access, cost
  • Data to document behavioral vs. social-emotional
  • Philosophical and theoretical differences
  • Teacher-focused, management compliance oriented
    vs. child-focused, promotion of competencies
  • Immediate impact vs. long-term pay off
