About the Presenter
Brianna Stiller, Ph.D. is a behavior specialist and has been a School Psychologist in School District 4J in Eugene, OR for 26 years. Dr. Stiller has co-authored two nationally available bullying intervention programs designed to deliver positive behavior support in schools. First Step to Success (Walker, et. al. 1997) is an intensive Positive Behavior Support (PBS) program for young children with high needs. Bully Prevention in Positive Behavior Support is a curriculum designed to dovetail with school wide PBS at the elementary level.
Dr. Stiller is a member of the School District 4J’s Equity Committee, which advises the Superintendent and the School Board on how to address issues pertaining to achievement gap; disproportionate discipline; bullying and harassment; and other issues around educational equity. In addition, Dr. Stiller is a key person in helping create the 4J School Climate survey, which specifically focuses on issues of harassment and bullying. The School Climate Survey and the Equity Committee are both specific efforts to call attention to issues of racism; homophobia; and other cultural phenomena that create safety and equity issues for youth in groups that have been historically discriminated against.
