Aims & Scope

The Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions (JPBI) is the official journal of The Association for Positive Behavior Support (APBS). The aim of the JPBI is to expand the knowledge and practice of effective behavioral support in school, home, and community settings, with a focus on comprehensive outcomes in the lives of children, youth, and adults. The goal is to extend the empirical database; enhance the conceptual framework; and provide a forum for researchers, professionals, families, and policymakers. Articles must be relevant for the development and application of behavioral support.
