CREDIT: 1 BACB Type II CEU
The current article provides a rationale for function-based treatments when working with individuals with aberrant behaviors. Additionally, the article focuses specifically on providing recommendations for escape-maintained problem behavior primarily for behavior excesses (e.g., aggression, SIB). Finally, the article provides a decision-making model to help guide practitioners who are tasked with implementing a treatment for escape-maintained problem behavior.
- Understand the importance of using function-based treatments.
- Describe the six categories of function-based treatments for escape-maintained problem behavior.
- Follow the decision-making model in order to identify appropriate treatments for escape-maintained problem behavior.
