Current Funded Projects

Lambie, G. W. (Principal Investigator). Supporting the whole child using the Sanford Harmony Program: Professional development for educators on students’ social-emotional needs. The primary purpose of this project is to provide educators (e.g., teachers, administrators, and support staff) from across a large school district (approximately 7,500 employees) with high quality professional development training focused on students’ social-emotional functionality (e.g., anxiety, depression, self-injurious behavior, and suicidality). After the educators’ review segments of the training modules, they complete self-efficacy and knowledge-based assessments to ensure they are acquiring the information to support their students’ diverse needs. The ultimate goal of the project is to increase educators’ knowledgebase and efficacy regarding common social-emotional challenges confronting students; therefore, increasing early identification and intervention for students, promoting the students’ holistic functionality.
