Beyond Behavior (BB) addresses compelling issues related to individuals with behavioral challenges. Regular features include Practitioner friendly articles which discuss evidence-based practices for use with challenging behaviors. Published by the Hammill Institute on Disabilities and SAGE in association with the Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders.

Beyond Behavior is a peer reviewed scholarly journal designed specifically for practitioners (e.g., teachers, administrators, counselors, paraprofessionals) who work with children and youth with or at risk for emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). The goals of Beyond Behavior are to publish articles that:

1. Describe research-informed academic and/or behavioral interventions and/or processes likely to improve meaningful outcomes for children with or at risk for EBD.

2. Develop the instructional and/or support capacities of professionals who work with children and youth with or at risk for EBD across diverse settings and programs.

3. Broaden the impact of research on practice in applied settings by making research-informed practice more accessible to diverse practitioner audiences.

As a practitioner journal, Beyond Behavior content highlights field-based practice applications directed toward children and youth with or at risk for EBD. Content also addresses real-world practice issues for professionals who serve this population. Published articles emphasize the “how to” nature of field-based practice. The practice applications and issues are informed by research to the extent practicable. Scholarship, then, helps provide practitioners with a rationale for choosing to use a practice or consider an issue. Beyond Behavior should not be considered as an outlet for manuscripts that provide detailed descriptions of an experimental research study.

Our intended audience includes all professionals who work with children and youth with or at risk for EBD. That includes preservice and inservice teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, counselors, social workers, juvenile justice personnel, and other mental health professionals. We also believe that parents and members of the general public may find the applied content of Beyond Behavior useful.
