Workshop Description

This presentation will teach the basic principles of Applied Behavior Analysis so they can be used in the school and home settings. It will emphasize a reduction in the use of punishment techniques through emphasis of positive reinforcement to teach replacement behaviors. It will introduce and examine the construct of maladaptive behavior(s) serving a function, and suggest function-based alternatives.

This Program is designed to help you…

  1. Learn about the basic principles of behavior
  2. Understand that punishment has limitations and is most effective when used with positive reinforcement
  3. Understand that the use of Positive reinforcement is the best practice to diminish negative behaviors
  4. Better understand what the function of a behavior is
  5. Use the function of the behavior to change the maladaptive behavior in to an adaptive behavior by implementing replacement behaviors.
