PA Behavioral Health Summit 2009



The Pennsylvania PBS State Leadership Team has proposed the concept of a Pennsylvania-based PBS Summit to be scheduled tentatively for the spring of 2009.

The overarching goals of the summit will be defined at the state leadership retreat on June 26 and 27, 2008. However, the team has discussed the need to raise public awareness and garner interest in school-wide positive behavior supports (SWPBS) across a broad group of stakeholders.

In terms of stakeholders, the team has expressed the need for the attention of state-level policy makers to be drawn to the advancement of social and emotional learning, resiliency and positive behavior supports that leads to better outcomes for all children. The team also expressed the need to develop additional partners in order to realistically advance data-based strategies for supporting all students along a continuum of need and intensity, given a three-tiered model of prevention and intervention.
