Treatment of Problem Behavior Maintained by Automatic Reinforcement
CREDIT: 1.5 BACB Type II CEUs
Automatically maintained problem behavior presents unique clinical challenges. This training reviews existing literature on the treatment of automatically maintained problem behavior and the effectiveness of each. In this training you will learn how to modify standard Functional Analyses to determine an automatic function, learn how to conduct additional hypothesis and non-hypothesis based assessments, and learn which function-based treatments to implement based on the results of all assessments. A more in-depth look at the treatment of severe self-injurious behavior (SIB) that is maintained by automatic reinforcers is provided. Specifically, an article review of different classifications of SIB is provided that help inform the selection of effective function-based treatment.
