This training provides an understanding about effectively treating problem behavior using a functional approach. It introduces the learner to behavior reduction plans and covers the essential components of those plans. The distinction between antecedent-based strategies and consequence-based strategies is presented and example procedures of both types are explored. Specifically, Noncontingent Reinforcement (NCR), Differential Reinforcement of Alternative Behavior (DRA), and extinction procedures that match each function are highlighted.
