Workshop #W45
CE Offered: PSY/BACB
From Stabilization to Generalization: The Role and Importance of Behavior Analysis in All Phases of Post-Acute Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning With Survivors of Traumatic Brain Injury
Friday, May 23, 2014
4:00 PM–7:00 PM
W184bc (McCormick Place Convention Center)
Area: PRA/CBM; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: Chris M. Schaub, M.Ed.
CHRISTINA M. PETERS (University of Nevada, Reno), CHRIS M. SCHAUB (ReMed), KEVIN ERDNER (ReMed), JIM CONWAY (ReMed)
Description: The workshop will include an overview of behavior analytic philosophy, principles, and procedures toward developing effective interventions for specific target behaviors as well as more broadly developing and implementing comprehensive, interdisciplinary treatment programs for individuals with intensive neurobehavioral needs, including aggression, elopement, resistance, dual diagnosis, etc. The primary focus is to present information that will help clinicians and others identify and prioritize treatment plan elements that are essential to integrated, comprehensive neurobehavioral rehabilitation.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this workshop, the participant will be able to (1) demonstrate beginning knowledge of the complex medical, behavioral, and cognitive sequelae associated with survivors of TBI with co-occurring issues; (2) describe the phases of post-acute TBI programming, from stabilization, evaluation, and treatment to discharge planning, preparation, and transition; (3) identify the ways in which the role of the behavior analyst can impact interdisciplinary treatment at all phases of planning and implementation; (4) describe how key behavior analytic concepts and principles can be incorporated into each phase of neurobehavioral programming; and (5) demonstrate a beginning knowledge of the behavior analytic model established by the presenters to guide interdisciplinary team efforts to integrate, prioritize, and program for this challenging population.
Activities: The presenters will provide an overview of ReMed's neurobehavioral population and services, followed by an in-depth discussion of the philosophy and programming that have been developed for this population. Attendees will participate in a hands-on activity designed to review relevant behavior analytic concepts, principles, and procedures and learn how and when each is used within the model to guide the interdisciplinary treatment. Participants will practice implementing the model presented via analysis and discussion of specific case examples to demonstrate application of basic concepts, principles, and tools.
Audience: This workshop is intended for BACB certificants and licensed psychologists,as well asbehavior analysts and/or interdisciplinary treatment team members currently working or interested in working with survivors of traumatic brain injury with complex neurobehavioral sequelae.
