Limited Capacity filling up

In this workshop, facilitated by Dee Spinkston, participants will understand positive behavior support (PBS) as a continuum of support for all students. We will identify and explore successful interventions for individuals and groups of young people. During our discussion, we will identify a continuum of interventions to promote youth self-regulation and social competency.

Learning Goals:
  • How to make meaning of behavior so that our response is appropriate;
  • Identify proactive positive support strategies; and
  • How to process behavioral incidents in culturally-appropriate ways with youth
“Takebacks” from this Workshop:
  • Understand PBS as a continuum of support for all students.
  • Increase understanding of the connection between impact of lagging skills and challenging behavior
  • Shift in perspective about challenging behavior and youth whose behavior challenges us.

Dinner will be provided.
