Assessment and Analysis of Severe and Challenging Behavior: an online longitudinal training practicum

Faculty: Thomas J. Willis, Ph.D.

This advanced, competency-based training practicum is appropriate for psychologists, behavioral consultants, resource specialists and other qualified professionals charged with assessing individuals who exhibit severe and challenging behavior and with designing positive behavior support plans based on a functional analysis of behavior. Previous participants have attended from Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Malta, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the U.S.

We invite all behavioral analysts, behavioral consultants, psychologists and other professionals charged with the design and implementation positive behavioral support plans to consider this world-class training event.

Participants in this practicum will conduct a Comprehensive Functional Assessment on someone in their caseload. They will submit their assessment report to Dr. Willis who will provide feedback on the report. The participant will then write a person-centered positive behavior support plan. After receiving feedback on the plan, the participant will implement the plan. During the final feedback session the class will review progress and make recommendations for the future implementation of the plan.

This is an Online Course. You do not have to travel in order to participate! All you need is a high-speed Internet connection, a webcam and a microphone!

The next class will begin when a class of at least 5 people is identified! Additional follow-up lectures and feedback sessions will be scheduled with the class during the first meeting. Start times will be determined based on the demographics of the class.

Fee: $3000 per person USD
