International Journal of Positive Behavioural Support Early Career Researcher Award
This award is given annually to a researcher who has carried out high-quality applied research on Positive Behavioural Support and/or Challenging Behaviour.
Researchers should be recent Masters Degree graduates (within the past two years), or practitioners who have fewer than five research publications in total and have published (including in press) peer reviewed research papers in 2018 or 2019. The deadline for entries is 15 March, 2019.
Entries will be reviewed by a panel of experts and the winner will be announced at the BILD PBS International Conference 2019.
Great Positive Behaviour Support Practice Posters
We are looking for posters from people who are engaged in delivering positive behaviour support and want to share their work.
We want to hear about pertinent, innovative and person-centred practices in organisations and teams. We are not looking for research, but accounts of practice. We are particularly interested in how you include those receiving support, their families and advocates, as well as engaging the wider community.
The deadline for submitting a poster proposal is 15 March 2019.
We will choose 10 proposals for the conference and notify people by 25 March 2019.
