Limited Capacity seats available

Representatives from Chilliwack Society for Community Living, CBI Consultants and Community Living BC will describe how behaviour support services are changing in British Columbia. An evidence-based transformation from ?expert? model to front line empowerment has helped to address the challenges of limited financial and human resources, increasing demand, and poor response times. A collaborative multi-disciplinary partnership has resulted in the development and delivery of a PBIS training curriculum to front line staff, professional mentoring opportunities for agencies and funding improvements. Case examples and materials will be shared to assist other jurisdictions to adopt a similar approach. . OBJECTIVES:Participants will: ? Learn the steps to move from expert model of PBIS to staff wide model. ? Learn how to incorporate Life Style Development planning into PBIS to improve quality of life for the individuals being supported. ? Learn the steps to overcome barriers that arise with the transition to an agency wide PBIS approach. ? Learn creative ways to fund the training of all the staff within the agency. ? Learn how to use limited consultant (PBIS trainer) resources to ensure that they are both effective and efficient. With little effort BIG change can occur for the individuals being served, the staff, the agency and the community. ? Learn how to empower staff with a skill set that provides them the ability to directly improve the lives of those they support.
