Adults are charged with providing educational environments that are safe, supportive, and focused on the intellectual and social/emotional development of children. In order to meet this charge and decrease the rate of student removal of students from their schools and communities, adults must have the appropriate awareness, tools, and skills. They must be equipped with knowledge that enables them to address the unique challenges of youth in the 21st century. This is the knowledge offered in Positive Behavior Facilitation (PBF). PBF is a thirty-six (36) hour research and evidence-based curriculum. PBF presents the necessary skills, techniques, and strategies for supporting children in the demonstration of positive behavior. The curriculum teaches that we must consider a comprehensive view of understanding and intervening in behavior rather than exclusively managing behavior on the surface.
