Positive Behavior Practices: From Core Values to Core Practice
This hands-on workshop covers the basic concepts of behaviorism and Positive Behavior Support practices, along with implementation of strategies based on IABA's Multi-Element Model, including skills teaching and behavior reduction strategies. The workshop will also provide orientation to generic Positive Behavior Supports applicable to a variety of situations. In addition, data collection strategies and behavior incident reports will be discussed and practiced and role-plays of various situations will provide hands-on experience. Participants will receive a Certificate certifying they have completed a 18-Hour workshop in 'Positive Behavior Support: From Core Values to Core Practice' and passed the associated knowledge tests.
The Positive Behavior Support training provides an evidence-based model which includes person-centered, non-aversive methods to prevent and respond to behaviors of concern. The training is designed to facilitate service providers as they create and deliver safe, effective, and enjoyable supports for individuals with behaviors of concern.
