Friday, May 26, 2023

Description: Behavior Skills Training (BST) has earned its credibility, as proven through many years of positive study outcomes. BST is used around the globe in ABA and its popularity is increasing. Many clinicians - including experienced ones - know about BST, but surprisingly, they do not know how to implement this. Through this workshop, we are going to change that. During this workshop, you will learn the theory behind BST. You will receive highlights of various study outcomes that examined the results of BST. Central in this workshop, is practice. You will get plenty of opportunities to practice BST in small groups. During this practice, we will use worksheets, and you will get instant feedback. In addition, you will learn a variety of key situations when you can use BST. For example, you can use BST directly with a learner, but also when training your clinicians. The content of this workshop has obtained credibility, as demonstrated by the involvement of the broader practice, education, and science communities in studying or applying the findings, procedures, practices, or theoretical concepts.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to: (1) Describe what Behavior Skills Training is (2) Identify key situations to use BST (3) Describe the results of using BST (4) Identify and apply BST to relevant situations
Activities: Workshop objectives will be met through a balanced presentation of a brief lecture; guided practice; video-modeling; group discussions; small group activities and frequency building activities.
Audience: Clinicians who want to apply BST with their learners, and individuals who want to apply BST with their clinicians (e.g., supervisors, managers, directors)
