Good Behavior Games and Trauma Informed Schools

Project Term: 24 months; 2017-2019
Grant Amount: $75,000

This project will build on the work that Yellowstone County has been doing to prevent adverse childhood experiences and promote trauma-informed care by implementing the PAX: Good Behavior Games in three schools located on the south side of Billings. The Good Behavior Games helps students learn effective self-management skills that have been shown to increase student success through increasing graduation rates, decreasing costs of special education, and decreasing suicide rates, incarceration, and substance abuse. This project will help create a more equitable school culture which will enhance student success and create a healthy trajectory for children as they become adults. Over two years, this project will train all kindergarten through third-grade teachers from the participating schools to use the Good Behavior Games and enhance the trauma-informed culture at each school.
