Positive Behavior Facilitation: Understanding and Intervening in the Behavior of Youth (2nd ed)
Overview

This new edition of Positive Behavior Facilitation helps adults examine how they interact with youth, understand children’s behavior, and use effective interventions to facilitate permanent behavior change.

The PBF approach challenges traditional models of discipline and control by providing school staff and others who work with youth with new ways of supporting youth and encouraging them to make positive behavioral decisions for themselves. The author provides updated details on how to use six PBF tools—practical and functional strategies necessary to comprehensively understand and effectively intervene in behavior.

Tool 1: Awareness and Management of Self

Tool 2: Knowledge of the Dynamics of Conflict

Tool 3: Understanding the Differences between Behavior Management and Behavior Change

Tool 4: Healing Environment

Tool 5: Surface Behavior Management Techniques

Tool 6: Effective Communication
Praise for Positive Behavior Facilitation

“Dr. Olive writes this book to encourage the adults who serve children and youth who defy instructions, overreact to minor frustrations, and have poor social skills and little motivation to learn.…PBF is the missing link that provides adults with a philosophical frame of reference, paired with effective strategies for succeeding with these youth.”

—Nicholas J. Long, PhD, from the Foreword

“Dr. Olive reminds us that there is a difference—an important difference—between managing behavior and changing behavior. She provides the reader (primarily educators but parents and others who are engaged in the lives of youth) with insight on how we can move beyond management and encourage positive behavioral change.”

—Reclaiming Youth Newsletter
