Whaddya Lookin’ At? An analysis of confrontation seeking — May 11, 2020 (3:00 - 4:30PM EDT) —
(1.5 CEU’s) - Individuals with behavior problems, just like anyone else, will “pick a fight” which we might call confrontation seeking. This behavior rarely occurs all day long and is typically what one might call an intermittent behavior problem. This presentation will suggest an analysis of the problem in behavioral terms, how to differentially diagnose the problem and treatment directions.

Antecedent Manipulations: The behavior analyst’s crack cocaine! —May 29, 2020 (3:00 - 4:30PM EDT) —
(1.5 CEU’s) - This presentation will point out some of the problems associated with excessive antecedent manipulations to control behavior problems. Although antecedent manipulations can be a valuable part of any behavioral treatment package, important skill sets are often overlooked. When these antecedent manipulations are too numerous, the individual may ultimately suffer by having to live, work, and be educated in environments that make unreasonable and environmental accommodations that may preclude functioning in less structured settings

Do Not Attend This Session! Dealing with Non-compliance — June 15, 2020 (3:00 - 4:00PM EDT) —
(1.0 CEU’s) – The concept of non-compliance is deeply rooted in human services whether it’s in the field of medicine (patient compliance), human resource management (employee compliance), or education (student compliance). Quite often, based on frequency of the problem, individuals will be labeled as “non-compliant” as though it is a personality trait. This presentation will examine how the concept is applied in clinical practice and why it is not a particularly useful and even damaging concept. Suggestions will also be made for more useful ways to conceptualize “non-compliance” and to focus on the attainment of specific desired goals and not “compliance” as a class of behavior.
