Professional Capacity Building for School Counselors through School-Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports Implementation
Betters-Bubon, Jennifer; Donohue, Peg
Journal of School Counseling, v14 n3 2016
The implementation of school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (SWPBIS) has been shown to reduce behavioral incidents and lead to more positive school climates. Despite the growing popularity in schools, there lacks clear understanding of the school counselor role in this approach. We present the perspectives of an elementary school counselor and middle school counselor engaged in starting SWPBIS programs. This position paper is focused on how the alignment of school counseling and SWPBIS programs can lead to increased school counselor leadership capacity, resulting in collaborative teaming, the use of data and systemic school change.
