Sarah Lindstrom Johnson, an associate professor from ASU’s School of Social and Family Dynamics, works in partnership with youth serving organizations to support development and improve the environments in which youth learn and grow.

So, it comes as no surprise that the team at the School Psychology Review journal made the decision to recognize her for her recent publication, "Scaling Up Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports: Costs and Their Distribution Across State, Districts, and Schools."

The publication focuses on the cost to implement a widely used school prevention program, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is a multitiered prevention framework that embeds a systems approach for establishing behavioral supports for all students, across all levels of need, to achieve social, behavioral and academic success. 

In recognition of her recent publication, the School Psychology Review has featured it as a free, open-access resource during the month of February 2021.

“This work is an example of the importance of research-practice partnerships," Lindstrom Johnson said.

"By demonstrating the low cost of programs like PBIS we can hopefully influence the distribution of state and local resources towards prevention. I am thrilled that School Psychology Review recognizes the relevance of this research for practice and policy.”
