Family HOPE Program Guide: Positive Behavior Support for Families of Children with Challenging Behavior

Overview

Based on the principles of positive behavior support (PBS), the Family HOPE program (happiness-optimism-promise-excellence) offers support and encouragement for families of children with behavioral issues. The principles outlined are especially useful when a child’s behavior is disability related but are universal and helpful in reducing stress and improving the quality of life in any family.

Gives helping professionals background on family stress, the challenges and role of siblings in behavior change, and PBS. It also includes weekly home visit agendas for working with families individually and step-by-step instructions for teaching Family HOPE principles in parent groups. Reproducible forms are included in the text and on the accompanying CD.
