Training and Systems
In this section you will find literature related to establishing systems to support PBS and teaching people to implement it effectively universally or within or across groups, organizations, or communities in which people with behavioral support needs function. The type of materials include individual research studies, synopses, and discussion articles.
Positive behavior support at a systems level retains the same features described in other sections of this website, with these features being implemented at multiple levels. The features include:
- collaborative teaming
- assessing variables that may affect behavior
- employing proactive, educative, and functional strategies
- data-based decision making
- an emphasis on quality of life and climate improvement.
Effective training is tailored to the participants and circumstances in which practices will be used. It involves clearly defining skills to be developed, effective instructional strategies (i.e., examples, prompting, modeling, practice activities, and positive and corrective feedback), and ongoing monitoring to ensure effective implementation.PBS FUNDAMENTALS PBS TRAINING MODELS ORGANIZATIONAL AND SYSTEM CAPACITY BUILDING
