Trauma Informed Program For Promoting Success (TIPPS)
The Trauma Informed Program for Promoting Success (TIPPS) is a 9-week ongoing program for middle school students. It is aimed at improving students' perceptions of school climate, emotion regulation, conflict management, and learning behaviors. Students were selected to participate in TIPPS based on elevated scores on a screening measure that was administered in the early fall. Students selected for TIPPS were then assigned to participate in the program in fall 2019 (fall program group) or spring 2020 (comparison group). Both groups were administered measures of outcomes (school climate perceptions, emotion regulation, learning behaviors, and conflict management skills) before the fall groups began and again at the end of the fall semester. This poster will present results of analyses focusing on differences between the two groups on outcomes following the fall semester, as well as the role of demographic factors (age, gender, and socioeconomic status) in influencing the effectiveness of the program.
