Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. gain knowledge of school-based prevention and intervention frameworks.
  2. gain knowledge of the theory and evidence behind an integrated service model.
  3. see how PBIS and SEL can be combined at the Tier 2 level within an MTSS framework.


Two commonly used frameworks for supporting youth's mental/behavioral health in schools are positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) and social–emotional learning (SEL). While both PBIS and SEL have an evidence base that supports their use independently, less is known about the effects of integrating these frameworks on youth outcomes in schools. The purpose of this poster presentation is to provide a description, rationale, review, and example of integrated school-based prevention, specifically at Tier 2.
