  • A Qualitative Exploration of Primary School Students’ Experience and
           Utilisation of Mindfulness
    • Authors: Bavani Bannirchelvam; Karen L. Bell; Shane Costello
      Pages: 304 - 316
      Abstract: Despite the increasing utilisation of mindfulness-based interventions in children, research investigating the impact of these interventions in children is still in its infancy. One significant gap in the literature is the general omission of the child’s voice in how they experience and benefit from mindfulness-based intervention. Therefore, the present study explored children’s experiences of a mindfulness-based intervention, as well as why and how they utilised mindfulness techniques. A semi-structured interview was undertaken with eight upper primary school-aged students after completion of a classroom-based eight-session mindfulness intervention. Thematic analysis elicited 11 key themes across the three research questions. Students generally liked the mindfulness-based intervention but preferred experiential over passive program components. Students utilised mindfulness techniques for emotion regulation, typically by focusing on their breathing, shifting their attention to the present, and using a smartphone application. These findings provide insights into factors contributing to program engagement and children’s use of mindfulness as a strategy for emotion regulation.

  • Cultivating Mindfulness with Third Grade Students via Classroom-Based
    • Authors: Michele Kielty; Tammy Gilligan; Renee Staton; Nicholas Curtis
      Pages: 317 - 322
      Abstract: Forty-five third grade students, from six different classrooms at a local elementary school, participated in our 3-year study. We delivered three 30-min classroom lessons on mindfulness using a curriculum that included modified lessons from the Mindful Schools and MindUp curricula as well as material we developed. We also provided booster sessions for the same students in fourth and fifth grades. Classroom teachers from the participating classrooms as well as the students anonymously shared comments about their experiences. Students were given two measures. These measures included the Mindful Student Questionnaire (MSQ; Renshaw and O’Malley 2014) and the Positive Experiences at School Scale (Furlong et al. Child Indicators Research, 6, 753–775, 2013). This article describes the intervention used and reports the findings from the analysis of quantitative and qualitative data. Related to the classroom experience, 100% of teacher comments were favorable. Intervention: Qualitative comments from students were positive. Quantitative results indicate that mindfulness scores did not increase.

  • Effects of a Mindful Breathing Exercise During Reading Fluency
           Intervention for Students with Attentional Difficulties
    • Authors: Alyssa M. Idler; Sterett H. Mercer; Lindsay Starosta; Jamie M. Bartfai
      Pages: 323 - 334
      Abstract: Students with attentional difficulties are at greater risk for reading difficulties. To address this concern, we examined the extent to which adding a mindful breathing exercise to individual reading fluency interventions would improve gains in reading fluency, student-reported attention, and student-reported stress. In a restricted alternating design, four students in grades 3–5 with teacher-reported difficulties in attention and reading participated in 12 intervention sessions that included reading fluency instructional strategies only or a mindful breathing exercise plus reading fluency instructional strategies. Based on visual and Bayesian analyses, there were no differences in within-session gains in reading fluency between conditions; however, one student had greater self-reported attention and less reported stress in intervention sessions that included the mindful breathing component. Implications of the study for future research integrating mindfulness practices in academic interventions are discussed.

  • Integrating Mindfulness into Mixed Martial Arts Training to Enhance
           Academic, Social, and Emotional Outcomes for At-Risk High School Students:
           a Qualitative Exploration
    • Authors: K. Milligan; R. Cosme; M. Wolfe Miscio; L. Mintz; L. Hamilton; M. Cox; S. Woon; M. Gage; M. Phillips
      Pages: 335 - 346
      Abstract: Increasingly, adolescents report experiencing levels of stress that exceed their coping resources. Chronic stress is associated with emotion regulation challenges that increase risk for poor mental health and educational outcomes. This qualitative study examined the impact of Integra Mindfulness Martial Arts™ (Integra MMA™) on the perceived academic, social, and emotional outcomes of high school students at-risk for emotion regulation challenges. Twenty-four students (19 males and 5 females) aged 14–17 who participated in Integra MMA™ at a rural high school and their teachers (N = 10) were interviewed about Integra MMA™ and its perceived benefits. Thematic analyses of transcripts highlighted diverse positive student outcomes, including improved academic outcomes, social competence, emotion regulation, and self-confidence. Four key processes were also described (e.g., awareness, calm, attention, acceptance) as supporting positive change. Benefits were seen across students at low and high risk for mental health challenges and male and female students. Future research directions and implications for programming are discussed.

  • The Effects of a Mindfulness and Biofeedback Program on the On- and
           Off-Task Behaviors of Students with Emotional Behavioral Disorders
    • Authors: Karena S. Rush; Maria E. Golden; Bruce P. Mortenson; Daniel Albohn; Melissa Horger
      Pages: 347 - 357
      Abstract: Research suggests that mind-body techniques are useful for enhancing self-regulatory behaviors, including attention and emotional regulation. The majority of research in this area focuses on adult behavior. However, there has been a growing interest in using mindfulness techniques with children and more recently, in the school setting. Students identified as emotionally disturbed (ED) could potentially benefit from such interventions. In this study, a 12-week mind-body curriculum utilizing mindfulness and game-based biofeedback techniques was implemented in special education emotional support classrooms with elementary and middle school students. A quasi-experimental design was implemented to examine the effects of the mindfulness and biofeedback program on students’ on-task and off-task behaviors in the classroom. Results indicated significant decreases in overall off-task behaviors and improvements that approached significance in on-task behaviors for the participants in the treatment group (n = 14) compared to the participants in the control group (n = 17). The potential benefits of using a mindfulness and biofeedback program with ED students are discussed as well as limitations of the study, implications for practice, and recommendations for future research.

  • Effectiveness and Social Validity of the Soles of the Feet
           Mindfulness-Based Intervention with Special Education Students
    • Authors: Joshua C. Felver; Sarah L. Felver; Kathryn L. Margolis; N. Kathryn Ravitch; Natalie Romer; Robert H. Horner
      Pages: 358 - 368
      Abstract: Soles of the Feet for Students (SOF) has demonstrated effectiveness at increasing academic engagement among general education students. This work intended to replicate and extend previous work by exploring the effectiveness and social validity of SOF among students receiving special education services, who had low levels of academic engagement and high levels of disruptive classroom behavior, in a public school setting. This study utilized a multiple baseline single-subject design. Four students (grades 4–7) were taught SOF over the course of five 20–30-min sessions. Direct observation data of student academically engaged behavior were collected during baseline and post intervention study phases. Students and teachers also completed social validity questionnaires. Following SOF training, all four students demonstrated improved mean levels of academically engaged behavior. Students and teachers also reported that SOF was an acceptable, feasible, and effective intervention. SOF offers a brief and effective manualized intervention to increase student academic engagement, and conversely reduce classroom disruptive behavior, for students receiving special education services.

  • Suicide Risk Monitoring: the Missing Piece in Suicide Risk Assessment
    • Authors: Terri A. Erbacher; Jonathan B. Singer
      Abstract: Suicide is the second leading cause of death among youth aged 10–25 years and approximately 1-in-6 adolescents reported serious suicidal ideation in the past year. Schools are a unique environment in which to identify and respond to youth suicide risk. Although there are screening tools for identifying which youth are at risk and assessment measures for establishing the severity of suicide risk, an essential aspect of risk management is excluded: monitoring youth suicide risk. It is likely that this gap exists because most of the development and research on screening and assessment is in settings such as outpatient mental health clinics or hospitals where routine monitoring is difficult. The Suicide Risk Monitoring Tool (SMT) was developed so that school mental health professionals could quickly track changes in youth already identified at-risk for suicide, including youth who are assessed but remain in school, or those who are re-entering school after a hospitalization. The SMT includes factors known to correlate with youth suicide risk. This paper will review the research on suicide screening and risk assessment, identify and describe the empirical and theoretical basis for the SMT, relate monitoring to the comprehensive risk assessment within a school’s overall framework for suicide risk assessment procedures, and provide a detailed case study that demonstrates how the SMT can be used with students in a school setting. Implications for research and practice are included.

  • Social Media Use Among Adolescents Coping with Mental Health
    • Authors: Dana L. Elmquist; Courtney L. McLaughlin
      Abstract: Within the last 10 years, social media has infiltrated the lives of adolescents in the USA and around the world. According to Pew Research Center (2015), 73% of adolescents have smartphones, 76% of those adolescents being 15–17 years old and 68% being 13–14 years old. Adolescents are gravitating toward social media and integrating it into critical aspects of their identities. A crucial aspect of social media use is how adolescents struggling with mental health issues are coping, relieving, and reacting on social media (Cavazos-Rehg in Crisis, 38(1), 1–9, 2016). The breadth of research on adolescent and social media use focuses on its negative impacts on mental health. While potential harms such as social filters, triggers, and cyber bullying or trolling exist, there are also plenty of potential benefits, for example, healthy self-expression, a sense of community and connectivity, and anonymously accessing mental health resources. It is imperative that educational professionals and school-based mental health providers familiarize and educate themselves on social media use by adolescents. Future research should focus on integrating social media use into identifying individuals in need of mental health services, interventions, and disseminating credible and professional resources.

  • Exceptional Professional Learning for RtI Implementation in Early
           Childhood Settings
    • Authors: Kizzy Albritton; Stephen D. Truscott; Nicole Patton Terry
      Abstract: Response to Intervention (RtI) is a multi-tiered problem-solving approach that has been used to help struggling school-aged children and is now proposed as a promising evidence-based model for early childhood settings. Successful implementation of RtI may require early childhood practitioners to develop new skills in assessment, intervention, and data-based decision making. Since these individuals may not receive formal training in the aforementioned areas, providing effective professional development may be a critical element needed to address these challenges. Unfortunately, there continues to be little emphasis on professional development for early childhood RtI implementation despite the clear need for such services. This article proposes a professional development framework to address RtI implementation in early childhood settings.

  • Race and Gender Differences in Teacher Perceptions of Student Homework
           Performance: a Preliminary Examination
    • Authors: Laura L. Pendergast; Linda Nickens; Sofia Pham; Simone Miliaresis; Gary L. Canivez
      Abstract: Although most students regularly complete homework, the extent to which race and gender influence teacher perceptions of homework performance has been largely unstudied. However, individual characteristics, such as race and gender, have been shown to meaningfully influence many aspects of students’ educational experiences and outcomes, and it is plausible that race and gender differences may exist in teacher perceptions of homework performance. This study used analysis of variance (ANOVA) to examine student gender and race differences in teacher ratings of three dimensions of homework performance (student competence, parent support, and homework completion). Findings indicated that teachers rated girls and White students as having greater homework competence (ability to complete homework assignments) than boys and racial minority (Black and Latino) students. No significant race or gender differences in teacher ratings of parent support for homework or in rates of homework completion were found. The examination of race and gender differences in homework performance has the potential to contribute to our understanding of race and gender gaps in academic achievement. As such, replication and further study of these differences are warranted.

  • Rules, Requirements, and Resources for School-Based Threat Assessment: a
           Fifty State Analysis
    • Authors: Scott Woitaszewski; Franci Crepeau-Hobson; Christina Conolly; Melinda Cruz
      Abstract: State governments and other agencies are resources that have the potential to provide leadership and guidance about school-based threat assessment practices. However, accessing information regarding threat assessment-related state mandates and recommendations can be a challenging and a time consuming task for school personnel as there is no single database or resource where that information is housed. Via internet searches covering all 50 United States, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, the authors of this study identified state statutes, requirements, standards, and other recommendations for school-based threat assessment. Currently, only one state unambiguously and explicitly mandates threat assessment procedures and threat assessment teams. However, at least five other states have other statutes, standards, or procedures that imply the need for school-based threat assessment. Additionally, at least 39 states provided a quality web-based threat assessment resource for schools. Twenty-three of those resources were posted on state departments of education or public instruction web pages. At least 21 states have developed specific state guidance documents on school-based threat assessment. These resources can guide school-based mental health professionals as they prepare for conducting threat assessments in the school setting.

      Abstract: Universal behavioral screening in the school setting plays a vital role in the prevention and early intervention of child difficulties. While universal screening methods have evolved, measures appear to examine child characteristics based on data collected primarily from teachers and children. Parents may also have important information to contribute to screening efforts; however, the extent to which parents are regularly involved in the screening process is somewhat unknown. This study investigated the behavioral screening literature in major school psychology journals from 2004 to 2014 to determine the frequency to which families and caregivers participate in the screening of child behavioral difficulties in schools. Results indicated very few research articles utilized families as screening informants. In addition, the majority of articles either did not mention families directly or only mentioned families briefly throughout the study. Implications for the inclusion of families within the screening process are discussed.

  • Promoting School Psychologist Participation in Transition Services Using
           the TPIE Model
    • Authors: Devadrita Talapatra; Andrew T. Roach; Kris Varjas; David E. Houchins; Daniel B. Crimmins
      Abstract: Transition services can be used to forge family, school, and community partnerships and foster a successful shift to adult life for students with intellectual disabilities (ID). School psychologists can play a valuable additive role in supporting the transition process due to their graduate training in interpersonal skills; consultation services; data-based decision-making; academic, social, and emotional interventions; and progress-monitoring. This paper introduces a three-phase cyclical intervention framework designed to improve comprehensive, evidence-based transition services for secondary students with ID by enhancing school psychologists’ knowledge of transition practices. By utilizing the Transition Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation (TPIE) model, school psychologists can proactively work with students, families, school personnel, and community agencies to foster post-school success in youth with ID in all phases of the transition process. This paper will discuss the theory, structure, and implementation of the TPIE phases. Strategies to bridge the research to practice gap in transition service delivery will also be discussed.

  • School Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management
    • Authors: Melissa A. Louvar Reeves; Stephen E. Brock
      Abstract: While schools are safer today than in years past, one act of school violence is one too many. Recent reports have conveyed the importance of schools developing and implementing protocols and procedures to prevent or mitigate school violence. To assist with this task, this article addresses behavioral threat assessment and management (BTAM) in the K-12 school setting and the school psychologist’s role in risk and threat assessment. Best practices in establishing a K-12 behavioral threat assessment and management process, including the assessment of risk factors and warning signs, identification of concerns, and follow-up interventions and monitoring are discussed. Ethical and legal considerations are also reviewed.

  • A Longitudinal, Latent Class Growth Analysis of the Association of
           Aggression and Special Education in an Urban Sample
    • Authors: Shelley R. Hart; Rashelle J. Musci; Tal Slemrod; Emily Flitsch; Nicholas Ialongo
      Abstract: As special education provides the context for delivery of an individualized approach to administering evidence-based interventions, regardless of disability category, we were interested in whether the provision of special education impacts the developmental trajectory of aggression. A longitudinal latent class growth model was utilized to examine the aggressive trajectories of participants in middle through high school and further analyses explored the relationship of special education variables with important variables. Participants included 578 students (53.4% male, 86.3% African American, 69% receiving free and reduced lunch [FRL]). Covariates were measured in first grade, aggressive-disruptive behavior indicators were measured in sixth through twelfth grades, and distal outcomes were assessed through young adulthood (i.e., 22–23 years old). Results identified two latent class trajectories. The lower aggressive trajectory class was more likely female with a special education history. The higher aggressive trajectory class was more likely male, received FRL, demonstrated lifetime drug abuse and dependence disorders (DUD) and criminal histories, and was less likely to graduate from high school. Further, students who received special education in elementary school were more likely to have graduated on-time, and less likely to have a DUD, to have been incarcerated, or to have reported a lifetime suicide attempt. Interestingly, further exploration of special education variables revealed few statistically significant differences. As special education is typically viewed as a risk factor for students, these findings illuminate a potential protective function of special education and prompt the need for further investigation into the types of individualized education plans targeting aggressive behaviors.

  • The School Psychologist’s Role in Leading Multidisciplinary School-Based
           Threat Assessment Teams
    • Authors: Shawna Rader Kelly
      Abstract: School psychologists have long been regarded for their expertise in the assessment, evaluation, and delivery of mental and behavioral health services for children in schools. Given the growing attention to school safety, crisis prevention, and crisis intervention, school psychologists are also increasingly called upon to assist with systems-level prevention efforts and individual assessments of risk for targeted violence through participation in school-based threat assessments. In this article, I define the role of the school psychologist within the multidisciplinary threat assessment team in conducting comprehensive assessments and developing individualized interventions to mitigate threats of violence in schools. From my experience conducting threat assessments as a school psychologist, implications for schools, school-based practitioners, and university trainers are also explored.

  • Examining Racial Microaggressions, Race/Ethnicity, Gender, and Bilingual
           Status with School Psychology Students: the Role of Intersectionality
    • Authors: Sherrie L. Proctor; Jennifer Kyle; Keren Fefer; Q. Cindy Lau
      Abstract: The current study investigated the intersection of race/ethnicity and two related factors, gender and bilingual status, and the experience of racial microaggressions in a sample of school psychology graduate students. We proposed that race intersects not only gender but also bilingual status, leading to significant differences in the frequency of experiencing racial microaggressions. Through a national survey of racially, ethnically, and linguistically diverse school psychology graduate students (n = 228), the study examined the interaction of race/ethnicity, gender, bilingual status, and three types of racial microaggressions students might experience in school psychology graduate education: assumptions of inferiority, microinvalidations, and workplace and school microaggressions. Although bilingual status was not significant, our findings indicated that Black males were significantly different from all other groups in their experience of two types of racial microaggressions—assumptions of inferiority and school and workplace racial microaggressions. Implications for school psychology program recruitment and retention practices are discussed.

  • Historical Overview of Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder and
           Neurofeedback: Implications for Academic Achievement, Assessment, and
           Intervention in Schools
    • Authors: Jeffry P. La Marca
      Abstract: From the first mention of impairments in attention in the scientific literature by the Scottish physician Alexander Crichton in 1798, the correlation between educational attainment and learning has been persistently noted. Since then, the impact of attention deficits on school achievement has been a central component in a significant portion of research, despite continual disagreements within the scientific community on identification, diagnosis, and efficacious interventions to address core symptoms of what is now referred to as Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This article provides the historical context in which the construct of ADHD was developed, as well as a discussion of two commonly used interventions to address symptoms of ADHD (e.g., pharmaceuticals and the use of electroencephalographic [EEG] operant conditioning, or “neurofeedback.”). While use of pharmaceutical interventions is relegated only to medical professionals, neurofeedback may have the potential to be used by highly trained special educators and school psychologists in academic settings.

  • Supporting Socio-emotional Competence and Psychological Well-Being of
           School Psychologists Through Mindfulness Practice
    • Authors: Uma Alahari
      Abstract: The development of effective emotional regulation is critical to the success of educational professionals in a variety of settings. These skills are particularly important for school psychologists who must learn to interact successfully with diverse students, teachers, and parents on a daily basis. Research now suggests that mindfulness practice contributes to the socio-emotional competence and psychological well-being of teachers. Through a literature review, this article examines the potential benefits of mindfulness practice to school psychologists. Mindfulness practice is suggested to help school psychologists behave more responsively towards teachers, parents, and children. The ability to sustain attention on the present moment may allow them to listen more attentively and better understand children’s behavior from their perspectives. This article concludes that school psychologists who develop the social and emotional skills that arise from mindfulness practice may be better prepared to manage their interactions with teachers, parents, and children and, as a result, build positive relations with them. Additionally, mindfulness practice may enable school psychologists to develop compassion towards the self and prevent stress and burnout.
