Treating Children With Behavioral and Emotional Disorders: Integrating Emotional and Moral Behaviors to Promote Generalization
Saturday, May 28, 2016

Michigan ABC, Hyatt Regency, Bronze East
Area: CBM/EDC; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: Jeannie A. Golden, Ph.D.
JEANNIE A. GOLDEN (East Carolina University)
Description: Children that have been victims of abuse and/or neglect often exhibit behaviors that appear to be callous, unemotional, antisocial and immoral. Often, the learning histories of these children affect their emotional and moral behaviors and these behaviors can serve as motivational operations. Behavioral treatment facilities often use a contingency-based focus when teaching appropriate behavior that works well for managing children's behavior in a structured setting where individuals follow-through with predictable contingencies, but do not prepare these children to function in a generalized setting. The presenter will provide a behaviorally-based explanation of why these children lack a repertoire for appropriate emotional and moral behaviors. She will also discuss what environmental factors can encourage appropriate emotional and moral behaviors and ways to develop effective behavioral treatments that are relationship-based, focus on emotional and moral skills, and promote generalization.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, the participant will be able to: (1) describe how the learning histories of children that have been victims of abuse and/or neglect effect their emotional and moral behaviors; (2) explain why these children lack a repertoire for appropriate emotional and moral behaviors and how those behaviors can serve as motivational operations; (3) describe the difference between contingency-based and relationship-based treatment approaches; (4) describe what environmental factors can encourage appropriate emotional and moral behaviors; (5) describe ways to develop effective behavioral treatments that are relationship-based and promote generalization.
Activities: Participants will listen to didactic information and real-life case histories in homes, schools and community settings, take notes, ask questions, view a PowerPoint presentation, present their own cases for feedback, and participate in role-play situations.
Audience: Participants would include board certified behavior analysts, psychologists, counselors, health care providers, social workers and/or teachers who serve children with developmental disabilities or children who typically-developing who have emotional difficulties and/or have been given psychiatric diagnoses.
