The 2019 Conference is once again set to be the largest UK gathering of practitioners, researchers and internationally-renowned PBS experts. It will be packed with opportunities to learn new skills, share good practice, debate key issues and hear about new ideas and developments.  

The theme for this year is implementing PBS and we will be offering a mix of workshops, masterclasses and inspirational keynote speakers. 

The main part of the conference takes place on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 May. On Wednesday 8 May, conference delegates can also sign up to a pre-conference event, the International Journal of Positive Behavioural Support Symposium.
