Seminar Leaders: Gary W. LaVigna, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Thomas J. Willis, Ph.D. or Jo Mullins, M.A., BCBA

Click HERE to see a preview of the seminar series Positive Practices in Behavioral Support Through Nonlinar Applied Behavior Analysis: An Evidenced Based Model of Support being presented by Gary W. LaVigna, Ph.D., BCBA-D.

CLICK HERE TO SEE A QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE SEMINARS

Seminar 1: Nonaversive Behavioral Support and Basic Principles of Positive Programming
In this seminar we will provide an overview of a person-centered, multi-element model for providing positive behavioral supports and describe in detail the roles that ecology, positive programming and reinforcement play within this model.

Seminar 2: Comprehensive Functional Assessment and Advanced Support Strategies
In this seminar we will provide in-depth training in behavioral assessment, functional analysis of behavior and how to use this information to develop positive behavioral support plans. You are encouraged to participate in Seminar 1 as this seminar builds on that information.

Seminar 3: Emergency Management and Reactive Strategies Within a Positive Practices Framework
When punishment is no longer used to manage behavior, people ask "What do we do when the behavior occurs?" "What do we do in a crisis?" This seminar will provide an overview of emergency management and reactive strategies that might be used as part of a complete multielement support plan. Your participation in Seminars 1 and 2 is encouraged as this seminar builds on that information.

Seminar 4: Assuring Staff Consistency and the Provision of Quality Services Through the Application of Organizational Behavior Management
This is the "magic." Based on the book, The Periodic Service Review, this one day seminar on maximizing staff consistency in service implementation utilizing effective staff supervision strategies is a "must-attend" day for everyone who has participated in the previous 3 days and is relevant as well, for members of the management team.
