DATES: 8/15-8/16, 2017
Hosted by Essential CEU Institute. Join us for a one- or two-day opportunity to discuss everyday behavior analysis, using meaningful examples from our everyday home and work lives. These examples aide us in making complex topics more understandable -- and enjoyable!
UPON COMPLETION OF DAY ONE, PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO:
• Discuss at least four methods of collecting data on meaningful behavioral and/or skill objectives.
• Define the “why” of behavior using simple functional assessment methodology: Sensory; Escape; Attention and Tangible.
• Discuss at least three ways to write goals -- for behaviors to be reduced, for replacement behaviors to increase, and for skills to be increased.
• Differentiate between preventative and reactive interventions and discuss at least two examples of each, using “everyday” scenarios.
• Discuss how person-centered plans may promote and also clash with behavior-analytic plans that are based on the “why” of behavior.
• Define treatment integrity and social validity, both of which are meant to create meaningful interventions and monitor the implementation of those interventions.
UPON COMPLETION OF DAY TWO, PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO:
• Give at least two everyday examples of stimulus-stimulus pairs and how these relate to the behavioral concept of “stimulus control”
• Name the principle that guides our use of if-then contingencies in behavioral support
• Name at least one preventative and one reactive intervention for a client who engages in AWOL behavior
• Discuss at least two considerations when selecting a crisis intervention support model
• Name at least one preventative and one reactive intervention for holiday blues
• Identify ways to increase client cooperation with medical and dental care
• Discuss the relationship between effective teamwork and effective behavioral support
• Identify at least two strategies to promote effective inter-agency communication and coordination
• Name at least two strategies to promote health and well-being for both clients and for their support team
