CE Offered: BACB
CANCELLED: Beyond the Basics: Comprehensive Behavioral Assessment and Intervention Strategies and Tactics

Description: This workshop is appropriate for practitioners looking to enhance their current practice by exploring a comprehensive process from initial client/student intake through intervention implementation and ongoing support. Content will be related to both basic and applied research and practical supports will be presented that address strategies for interdisciplinary interactions, individualized assessment, program conceptualization and development, and training/supervision. A variety of supports for individualized assessment and program development will be presented.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to: (1) articulate a comprehensive set of variables impacting the assessment and intervention process; (2) describe strategies for organizing and implementing assessment activities across a variety of situations; (3) describe steps and supports in creating comprehensive intervention plans for both skill acquisition and behavior reduction target behaviors; (4) articulate a framework for advanced decision making, including a variety of variable impacting client/student outcomes
Activities: The workshop will focus on a repeating cycle of presentation of concepts, discussion of the presented topics, review of supporting materials (such as planning forms and/or templates), and practice applying the content to personally relevant examples. The format will include both large group lecture/discussion, and small-group activities and practice.
Audience: The primary audience is intermediate-level BCBAs, but it will likely also be relevant to new and more advanced BCBAs as well. Given the content will include advanced discussion of a variety of ABA terms and behavioral principles, graduate level ABA-concepts will not be defined, and therefore the content may be too advanced for RBT/BCaBA professionals. Early-stage BCBAs should be able to access the content, but the content will also likely explore more advanced practices than their previous training.
