Implementing Positive Behavior Support with Chinese American Families: Enhancing Cultural Competence
Wang, Mian; McCart, Amy; Turnbull, Ann P.
Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions, v9 n1 p38-51 2007
In positive behavior support (PBS) practices, one critical issue involves helping professionals understand and respect the values of families from culturally diverse backgrounds. This article summarizes embedded cultural values of PBS represented in four key features of the PBS process: collaborative partnerships, functional assessment, contextual fit, and meaningful lifestyle outcomes. With acknowledgment of acculturation, the contrast between Chinese cultural values and embedded PBS values is illustrated in the context of implementing PBS for Chinese American families. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
