Implementing Various Social, Emotional and Behavior Programs Using a Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support Framework

Kaye Otten, Licensed Behavior Analyst/Adjunct Professor, University of Central Missouri

Tiers 1 – Foundation

Descriptor

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support is often misunderstood as a specific program or curriculum. In reality, SW-PBS is an extension of applied behavior analysis, which is a “discipline concerned with the application of behavioral science in real-world settings such as clinics, schools and industry with the aim of improving socially important issues, such as behavior problems and learning” (Baer, Wolfe, Risley, 1968). This behavior science has more than 30 years of research confirming its effectiveness. SW-PBS is a framework that guides the development of evidence-based multi-tiered systems of support for behavior. This session will address how various programs such as The Leader in Me, Conscious Discipline, and Safe and Civil Schools can be used within an SW-PBS framework.
