Positive Behavior Support (PBS) – It Starts with You!


Event Date/Time: June 7, 2023, 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Instructor: Kelli Downey, Trauma Informed Care Trainer and Consultant

“All behaviors communicate a need.” You’ve heard the saying, you know it’s true, and yet sometimes you might find yourself feeling burned out trying to put that knowledge into practice. This interactive training lets us take a step back and provides tools to better understand ourselves and our responses to those behaviors that are challenging. We will explore the goals of Positive Behavior Support (PBS) and discover ways to build supports that align with those goals. This training provides (virtual) space away from our day to day experiences so we can bring awareness to our thought patterns, reactions, and stress responses that are present when supporting others. This is a key foundation needed to help us respond with intention opposed to reacting to challenging behaviors.

During our time together we will learn:

  • a framework to understand behavior and the need(s) it is communicating
  • the overarching goals of PBS
  • tools to help us respond instead of react when someone is escalating or engaging in dangerous behaviors
  • strategies that support regulation of the nervous system and help people build new skills.

The training includes resources and strategies designed for service providers supporting people who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities. However, the content is applicable to anyone who is in a role where they are providing direct services to others.
