Lampron, S., & Gonsoulin, S. (2013). PBIS in restrictive settings: The time is now. Education and Treatment of Children, 36, 161-174.

This conceptual manuscript identifies why FW-PBIS is an appropriate framework to reduce reliance on punitive behavior management systems and instead provide rehabilitation for youth in restrictive settings. The authors provide evidence-based practices of how FW-PBIS can be used to improve facility safety, teach social skills, and encourage youth to demonstrate accountability. Lastly, the authors provide examples of how FW-PBIS has effectively benefited youth as they transition back to their communities.
