Jolivette, K. (2016). Multi-tiered systems of support in residential juvenile facilities. Washington, DC: The National Technical Assistance Center for the Education of Neglected or Delinquent Children and Youth (NDTAC).

This descriptive brief provides an overview of and comparison between multi-tiered systems of support and the PBIS framework as applied within juvenile facilities. The author describes the benefits of implementing FW-PBIS as reported in the field, youth and agency perceptions of FW-PBIS implementation, and adaptations and considerations to be made when implementing within juvenile facilities. Three facility examples of FW-PBIS implementation are provided from the lens of FW-PBIS Leadership Team members from secure detention and long-term facilities. This content can be applied to residential facilities as well.
