Description: This interactive and hands-on workshop will provide an excellent opportunity for individuals to learn a well-defined, systematic self-monitoring behavior intervention, and motivational system. Participants attending this workshop will leave with a comprehensive tool in hand to implement immediately. This session will explore peer-reviewed research that supports the implementation of self-monitoring systems for students of various ages and developmental levels. A discussion of self-monitoring procedures incorporating a match component will be presented, with specific focus on Self & Match a user-friendly, easy to implement, empirically supported system. Participants in this training will acquire a systematic guide to planning self-monitoring systems, as well as a Self & Match manual with substantial training materials. Additionally, participants will strengthen their knowledge of necessary considerations prior to implementing any self-monitoring or motivational system. The Self & Match system has been used internationally to support individuals with emotional behavior disorders, autism, learning disabilities, and unidentified students in general education. Self & Match can be incorporated into individualized behavior systems, class-wide, and school-wide management procedures as a part of SWPBIS and has been successfully implemented in a variety of settings; including (but not limited to): public and private schools, clinics, homes, and recreational settings. Great workshop for individuals and/or teams!
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants should be able to: (1) identify the research-based benefits of self-monitoring; (2) identify the basic components of the Self & Match system; (3) effectively apply, individualize, and monitor progress of a self-monitoring system; (4) identify the necessary components of an effective motivational system; (5) identify the importance of pre-treatment planning on the effectiveness of intervention; (6) create a Self & Match self-monitoring system to implement in their workplace; and (7) systematically consider function in the development of self-monitoring interventions and reinforcement opportunities.
Activities: During the course of this hands-on workshop, participants will strengthen the skills needed to effectively develop self-monitoring interventions incorporating a match component. This workshop will review the purpose/rationale of self-monitoring, the benefits of self-monitoring, the Self & Match system, and consider the role of technology in supporting this behavioral intervention. Additionally, participants will interactively complete a systematic considerations guide prior to implementation to lead them on their way to creating their own Self & Match system.
Audience: Participants will engage in active learning to increase their knowledge of systematic self-monitoring and motivational systems as behavior interventions. Workshop attendees will gain a tool/guide to develop their own Self & Match self-monitoring systems to utilize in school, home, or clinic settings. This workshop is designed for behavior analysts, consultants, school psychologists, autism specialists, special educators, teachers, administrators, parents, students, and/or others who primarily support individuals from K to 21.
