About the Event

Social workers often work with clients who engage in challenging behaviors. Traditional social work education does not include extensive training on behavior interventions and modifications. Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) is a set of evidenced based strategies used to decrease challenging behavior and increase new replacement skills. This workshop will provide an introduction to Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) within social work practice to support clients with challenging behaviors. Participants will review systematic disproportionality that can be addressed by using PBS. Participants will be to define challenging behaviors and identify antecedent of behaviors. Participants will also examine behavior models in the context of social work practice and review their implications for treatment planning and improving client outcomes.

This workshop is open to the public.
