A Trauma-Informed Effective Reinforcement System for Girls Webinar

Held on August 7, 2013 and hosted by OJJDP in conjunction with the National Girls Initiative, this webinar reviewed the framework of the Trauma Informed Effective Reinforcement (TIER) System for Girls, and provided examples of processes and techniques that establish a gender responsive, trauma-informed program culture.

The TIER System for Girls is a female responsive, research-based model that offers short-term detention and residential programs an effective alternative to compliance-focused behavior management systems. The TIER System for Girls teaches staff skills that are more effective in motivating positive behavior with girls than traditional points and level systems
