EVENT DETAILS

How to Prevent Problem Behavior: A Workshop with Dr. Brian Iwata

Event Details:
Dr. Iwata will speak on applied research regarding preventing problem behavior including recent developments in the field of ABA as they pertain to the topic. This half-day workshop will review modern methods for the assessment and treatment of challenging behavior, and discuss strategies of using ABA-based methods to move from intervention after problem behavior occurs towards prevention. As Dr. Iwata noted while visiting Services for the UnderServed:   

 

"The field of ABA has done amazing work in responding to behavior after it occurs. I believe the evolution of our work in the coming decade will focus more on the antecedents to problem behavior, and what can be done to prevent its occurrence."

   

This workshop qualifies for 4.5 Continuing Education Credits.    

   The natural science approach of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has come to inform many of the world's most effective, person-centered clinical and educational practices. Dr. Brian Iwata, a preeminent figure in the field of ABA for over 30 years, has used this natural science approach to advance the assessment and treatment of challenging behavior. As a prolific researcher, clinician, and educator, Dr. Iwata serves as an advocate for the intellectually disabled (ID) community, and provides a rare sense of perspective for administrators, clinicians, and direct caregivers.

 

Who Should Attend:

This workshop will provide essential information for program administrators, behavior analysts (BCABAs & BCBAs), psychologists, Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs), special education staff, and supervisors. The procedures discussed during this session can be implemented across a variety of settings - such as group homes, schools, day programs, and employment sites. This session has been approved for continuing education hours for BCBAs and BCaBAs by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.
