This conceptual manuscript provides the theoretical basis and rationale for why PBIS, as a public health model, should be applied within juvenile facilities. The authors review the a) characteristics; b) identification, surveillance, and interventions; and c) application of the prevention logic and evidence-based practices in juvenile corrections. The authors conclude with recommendations related to policy changes, national implementation, and data collection.
