When Treatment Plans Don’t Work, Now What?

Posted on
Bobby Newman BCBA Conference

Monday 25th September 2017, 9am to 5pm

Edinburgh training and conference venue

16 St Mary’s Street, EH1 1SU

Content of conference:

  1. Proper behavior management must be done in keeping with a good functional behavior assessment (FBA)/analysis.
  2. Anyone who says they can provide a treatment plan without first doing an FBA is selling something.
  3. It is possible for treatment plans to backfire if one does not first conduct a good FBA. Treatment plans that are carried out incorrectly, even if the plan is appropriate, may lead to behavioural problems being exacerbated.

The current talk will look at some of the most common ways that behaviour treatment plans are inadvertently undermined and misapplied, with suggestions regarding how to fix these.

This conference is open to both parents and professionals.

Registration starts at 8:30am and refreshments (teas, coffees and lunch) are included in the price of your ticket.
