Journals that introduce you to new ideas and explore what good practice looks like

The International Journal of Positive Behavioural Support

A peer-reviewed publication that aims to:

  • define and promote good practice in relation to the use of PBS
  • add to the evidence base regarding such interventions
  • demonstrate how PBS interventions can support people to change their challenging behaviours, improve their quality of life, and result in reductions in the use of restrictive procedures (such as physical intervention, seclusion and as required medication)
  • bridge the gap between academic research and service practice

It is published twice a year. Access to online back issues is available as part of the subscription.
