PBIS Workshop

Dr. Cathy Kaufman Iger, Dr. Benjamin Klein, and Dr. Audrey Halpern, from the Psychology Department, presented a talk entitled “Understanding the GBS Approach to Positive Behavior Intervention Supports and Promoting Positive Behavior at Home” to a standing room-only crowd of GBS parents/caregivers in March. The talk focused on the GBS philosophy of managing challenging behaviors in school with an emphasis on the idea that “all children do well if they can.” The presenters described the specific lagging skills our students exhibit that interfere with their ability to successfully regulate their behavior when they become distressed and problem solve effectively with adults and peers. The talk outlined the Collaborative Problem Solving model that is used at all developmental levels with our students and how many of the same strategies and techniques utilized in the school setting can be generalized to the home environment.
