ProW research team had the pleasure and honour to host a constructive online meeting with a pioneer in the field of Positive Behavior Support, Dr. Tim Lewis from the University of Missouri, USA.

During the online meeting Dr. Tim Lewis talked about the importance of Promoting Teachers Wellbeing through Positive Behavior Support in Early Childhood Education (ProW) by utilizing Positive Psychology and School Wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS). Positive Behavior Support in early childhood education is based on evidence-based policies and practices that aim to enhance the teaching profession and elevate teachers’ careers and capacities in Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) settings.

The team discussed about the project which is currently implemented in collaboration with 11 organizations in Cyprus, Greece, Romania, and Portugal. Dr. Lewis shared his views about the importance of teachers’ and students’ perceptions alignment regarding the behavioral problems in schools.
