May 19, 2014
Michael Nunno delivered the keynote address at the annual British Institute for Learning Disabilities (BILD) conference in Glasgow, Scotland on May 9, 2014. His talk addressed "Elements of organisational toxicity in children's treatment facilities that leads to aggression and maltreatment." He was also a guest speaker at BILD's pre-conference research workshop, discussing "Managing the journey through the complexity of trauma informed care: Lessons from the implementation of a principle-based program model." Dr. Nunno is a senior extension associate with the Residential Child Care Project in the Bronfenbrenner Center.
The 2014 BILD conference outlined ways to turn research into daily practice and showed how positive behavior support approaches can be applied across a wide range of settings and supports. Additionally, speakers provided examples of frameworks for implementation, including qualitative outcomes from international perspectives.
A popular feature at the conference was the 20-foot-long graphic facilitation wall, where the messages from the event, and the role and future for positive behavior support were illustrated by artists from Creative Connection (detail featuring Michael Nunno below).
