Event Description

Day 1: Education: Practical Functional Assessment & Skill-Based Treatment Training with Dr. Hanley
All implementers and immediate supervisors who will be involved in assessment and implementation must complete live or on-demand training.

Day 2: Application: on-site interactive analysis and treatment planning session with Dr. Hanley

Primary Training Objectives

  1. An attendee will be able to defend the practice of relying on synthesized reinforcement contingencies when functionally analyzing problem behavior and articulate the advantages of functional control over functional classification.
  2. An attendee will be able to derive the suspected response class, establishing operations, and synthesized reinforcers from interview results.
  3. An attendee will be able to describe the tactics for improving the safety, efficiency, and televisibility of the functional analysis.
  4. An attendee will be able to describe how to quickly and safely develop replacement skills within an open-door model that obviates the use of physical management and minimizes the possibly of escalated problem behavior.
  5. An attendee will be able to describe the generally applicable process for teaching contextually appropriate behavior following the shaping of communication and toleration repertoires.
  6. An attendee will be able to describe how to respond to problem behaviors were they to resurge during the skill-based treatment process.
  7. An attendee will be able to describe different choice models in which the process may be conducted to further minimize escalated forms of problem behavior during the therapeutic process.
  8. An attendee will learn how to use backward design for developing analysis and treatment processes for individual learners.
  9. An attendee will learn how to identify the components of priority skill sets (branches) for an individual learner.
  10. An attendee will learn how to design initial contexts in which the learner is happy, relaxed, and engaged.
  11. An attendee will learn how to empower clients in this same context while preventing problem behavior from escalating when challenging situations are introduced.
  12. An attendee will learn how to identify and develop communication and toleration repertoires for the learner.
  13. An attendee will learn how to shape contextually appropriate chains of behaviors comprised of relinquishing, transitioning, starting, varying, enduring, and persisting.
  14. An attendee will learn how to respond to all types of problem behavior were they to resurge during the skill-based treatment process.
  15. An attendee will learn how to collect data, monitor progress, and make values-based and performance-based decisions during the skill-based treatment process.
