LEND Brief: Positive Behavior Support

Description

An issue focusing on person-centered positive behavior support (PBS) and on individuals living in community settings who have benefitted from systematic and longitudinally delivered positive behavior support and person-centered planning (PCP).

Positive behavior support is a package of evidence-based strategies to increase quality of life and decrease problem behavior by teaching new skills and making changes in a person's environment. Tapping into knowledge and experiences from authors across the United States, this LEND Brief delves into various aspects and approaches of positive behavior support.
