Join Drs Alinka Fisher and Michelle Rose, and Monika Dobek to earn more about engaging families with PBS/PBIS. Helping young people to exhibit positive academic and social behaviour is known to support positive life outcomes. Engaging parents in PBS / PBIS is a critical element for success.  Research demonstrates that a consistent approach from home and school provides a greater advantage for the achievement of successful life outcomes for young people.

The event will begin at 6pm  Tas, Vic, ACT, NSW, QLD time, 5:30pm NT and SA time and 4pm WA time, and will run for 90 minutes.
