Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports

Devereux Georgia focuses on the positive, while building on the strengths of each individual. Our treatment model is based on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), a framework that promotes the reduction of challenging behaviors through the encouragement of positive behaviors. PBIS helps youth develop social and life skills, as well as problem-solving skills, and rewards them for demonstrating positive, pro-social behaviors. These rewards motivate youth to complete their treatment goals.

The PBIS program expectations that are taught and reinforced daily include:

Be Responsible ... Be Respectful ... Be Safe

We believe that through the use of the PBIS methodology, our clinicians and staff are able to treat youth more effectively and help them successfully return to their homes, schools and communities. In addition, we are able to provide youth with an enhanced set of skills to help them improve their ability to cope and reduce their chances of repeating problem behaviors.
