This study is designed to promote the sustainability of evidence-based practices by integrating Conjoint Behavioral Consultation (CBC) into schools' standard student support structures, (e.g., student assistant team processes). Authentic, school-based educational consultants — for example, school district employees, such as school psychologists, social workers and counselors — will be the main implementers of the intervention.

CYFS researchers will provide implementation support to school-based specialists in their natural settings. For intervention support, researchers will provide training over three years, including onsite workshops, school visits, observations, coaching and more.
