Description: The design and implementation of effective contingencies to solve problems of social importance is the sine qua non of behavior analysis. This workshop will provide assistance to all levels of staff and parents to make conspicuous the contingencies operating in a given situation across home, general, and special education classes as well as community settings. Participants will learn to formulate and deliver supplementary reinforcement contingencies as prescribed by best-practice recommendations. Each participant will receive a copy of a "Worksheets for Designing Contingencies" booklet that compiles many of the contingencies known to reflect "best practice" for achieving ethical change in problematic behavior. For service providers already familiar with the principles and operations of behavior analysis, the worksheets contained within this binder will serve as a convenient means of standardizing communication and documentation of procedures. For those less familiar with applied behavior analysis, the booklet will provide an overview of the critical concepts, principles, and operations that the ethical utilization of each of the contingencies contain therein. Each contingency description is designed so that each page can be copied and completed for an individual learner or client. Each participant will be required to select and complete contingency worksheets for a learner of his or her choice in order to increase desirable (e.g., participation or other pro-social) behavior and/or decrease undesirable (e.g., self-injurious, injurious, or disruptive) behavior.
Learning Objectives: At the end of the workshop the participant will be able to do the following: 1. select and complete contingency worksheets to increase desired behavior and weaken undesirable behaviors; 2. formulate and deliver supplementary reinforcement contingencies as prescribed by best-practice recommendations.
Activities: Participants will formulate and learn to deliver supplementary reinforcement contingencies as prescribed by best-practice recommendations. Participants will also be required to select and complete contingency worksheets for a learner of his or her choice in order to increase desirable (e.g., participation or other pro-social) behavior and/or decrease undesirable (e.g., Self-injurious, injurious, or disruptive) behavior.
Audience: BCBA, BCABA, graduate students, teachers, parents, and program supervisors.
