Families and schools are where children experience the major part of their childhood and where children learn resiliency. Multidisciplinary school teams help boost that resiliency. MFTs are now becoming school certified, and can offer unique and valuable contributions to school teams to help foster resiliency and achievement. This institute will illustrate how MFTs have joined multidisciplinary school teams to boost student achievement since certification, and will provide participants with ideas about how to boost certification initiatives in their divisions.
