To further our mission of supporting the development, implementation, and assessment of evidence-based practices that facilitate systemic improvements for students, teachers, schools, and districts, EASTCONN's Psychological & Behavioral Consultation Services Department offers professional development workshops for educational professionals across the state of Connecticut. These workshops are characterized by the use of real-world examples, problem-based learning, small-group activities, and research-based recommendations.

Professional Development Opportunities:

  • Open-enrollment workshops are available to all interested educational professionals, or
  • District- or school-specific PD can be adapted specifically for the audience and content desired by the requesting school, district or organization

Please note that EASTCONN's Psychological & Behavioral Consultation Services group contributes to the development and dissemination of evidence-based practices through the publication of empirical research and the presentation of that research to scientists and practitioners at national and regional conferences.
