Four Day Adult Service PBS Awareness Level Training Materials
Purpose: This four day training system was created to introduce functional behavioral assessment and positive behavior support to leaders within adult service settings. Instead of creating a standard workshop on PBS, the authors identified individuals across different organizations who would represent their organization and who met four times over a period of 8 number of weeks. Each of the four workshop days were full day trainings. Homework activities were included in the training so that each leader was expected to bring information back to their planning teams and faculty and then report back at the next workshop day. The activities were practiced in during the training day and included an answer sheet that individuals could use while working with their faculty. This training is intended to be an awareness level training. The goal of the 4 day workshop was to assist organizations in starting a long-term plan for implementing PBS. The training materials below should be used by individuals with a background in applied behavior analysis or positive behavior support. The training will not be as useful without a person who is familiar with organization-wide planning, functional behavioral assessment, and positive behavior support facilitation.
