Presentation Abstract

PBIS (Positive Behaviors Interventions and Supports) is a climate modification tool that is currently being implemented in several schools across the state. This workshop, designed by a school psychologist and school counselor who currently work for a GNETS (Georgia Network for Educational and Therapeutic Support) program, will provide participants with insight as to how this program can not only change the school environment for students but also for staff. Through this workshop, these participants will learn how to create a staff PBIS matrix and ways to utilize this matrix to encourage and recognize faculty and staff to promote positive climate change within the school setting. Participants will also walk away with ideas on how to acknowledge staff in ways that encourage positive interactions between staff and students, staff and colleagues, and even staff and administration. Research has shown that positive climate change can impact peer relationships and even social skills. This workshop will help participants not only create a matrix and learn tools to encourage positive climate change but also encourage staff buy-in for implementation of PBIS in their school.
