“Integrated models of prevention and treatment: Positive Behavior Supports and Restorative Practices”

Multiple approaches to school discipline and bullying are currently being used nationally and internationally. School wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS) has been widely disseminated with the support of the U.S. Department of Education. In recent years there has been a rapidly rising interest in the adoption and evaluation of Restorative Justice practices in schools, typically referred to as Restorative Practices. In this session we will describe the theory and components of each approach and then illustrate a proposed combined intervention approach. The approach is based on a core theory that integrated models of prevention and treatment, which combine multiple independent strategies or programs merged into a single intervention, have the potential to address some of the significant challenges facing school programs in a way that does not compromise integrity. Applied examples will be included in the presentation.
