ACT with Families: It is All About Relationships – Group
As behavior analysts, our jobs are larger than just the client in front of us – they include shaping the behavior of caregivers, siblings, parents, and the whole environment that supports the client’s learning and behavior. Behavior analysts often fail to recognize the significance and power of a strong therapeutic relationship with the entire family. This presentation seeks to introduce Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to behavior analysts as a framework to not only improve behavioral flexibility within the context of their sessions with clients, but also to improve and enhance therapeutic outcomes with parents, families, and within the clinician’s own life. The importance of compassionate care, behavior analytic descriptions of ACT processes, and practical strategies for implementing ACT will be discussed.

Addressing the Behavior Cusp Skills of Tolerating Routines Related to Health and Safety and Environmental Aversives – Group
People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) are at risk for a high rate of medical problems and regular trauma from daily care to prevent and treat health and safety issues. Those who need the highest level of care often have the least access to it and face challenges with communication with medical providers and toleration of preventative and reactive care. Additionally, they face social isolation and the loss of additional skills with a narrow range of reinforcing activities, which often grows narrower the older they get if these tolerating skills are not addressed proactively.
After a thorough discussion of the ethics involved, we present a practical, evidence-based ethical decision-making process for selecting and designing curriculum for desensitization targets depending on the type of social significance for the learner including skills necessary for current and future health and safety as well as skills necessary to expand leisure activities and increase community access and involvement.
Discussion topics include the process of designing an assessment that determines social significance with client assent is the first step, and subsequent curriculum design including treatment packages such as Calm Counts, Skills Based Treatment and Essential for Living.
- Attendees will identify ethical issues regarding selection and process for teaching these skills.
- Attendees will learn to assess what skills would be behavior cusps for a specific learner based on their health needs and family culture.
- Attendees will learn how to determine the most effective and ethical treatment procedure for health and safety routines, given their client’s profile and needs.
- Attendees will become familiar with current forms of procedural technology and guidance on how to combine those within a desensitization program.
- Attendees will plan for care coordination with caregivers and providers.
Applying Pragmatism to Improve Student Progress – Group
This event will discuss the forgotten client- our students and supervisees. As instructors (either in University or clinical settings) we tend to forget that our students’ progress is a direct result of the contingencies we design to help them acquire the skills they need to be successful. While we are quick to be optimistic and analytic for our identified service recipients, the field tends to gravitate towards mentalism and dogmatism when it comes to supervisees that are not responding to our instructional program. This event reminds BCBAs how to use the science of human behavior- pragmatism, empiricism, contingency management- to create behavior change systems that work for each and every student/supervisee and to troubleshoot ineffective they progress.
- Attendees will discriminate between mentalistic and radical behavioral explanations of lack of student progress.
- Attendees will identify examples and nonexamples of pragmatic approaches to behavior analytic instruction.
- Attendees will be able to evaluate students’ progress, analyze causes of performance deficits, and recommend solutions for individuals that are not acquiring new skills at an appropriate rate.
- Attendees will be able to state the advantages of using learner efficiency as a pragmatic measure of student skill acquisition.

Traditional Escape Extinction: Ethical Considerations and a Review of Alternatives – Group
Behavior analytic intervention programs frequently include the use of forced prompting to earn compliance with demands and reduce escape maintained challenging behavior. This approach is effective but can result in an increase in challenging behavior if the challenging behavior is also maintained by attention or can be difficult to implement with clients who are larger in size. Additionally, caregivers and staff may not accept the use of forced prompting and may not implement the procedure during the naturally occurring routine, which also reduces the effectiveness of the procedure. The purpose of this webinar is to explore ethical considerations regarding the use of forced prompting by drawing from the BACB Ethical and Professional Compliance Code and Van Houten et al. (1988). Additionally, the presentation will explore how the 7 Steps to Earning Instructional Control addresses these ethical considerations and whether research in the basic or applied areas supports alternatives to forced prompting such as the 7 Steps as viable options for reducing escape maintained challenging behavior.
Participants will be able to:
- Explain at least four issues that arise when using traditional escape extinction procedures
- Explain how traditional escape extinction procedures hamper the public’s image of behavior analysis
- Explain how the BACB PECC applies to the four issues with traditional escape extinction
- Describe the 7 steps of instructional control
- Provide at least 3 descriptions from basic and applied research that supports the use of alternatives to traditional escape extinction
- Describe future research that needs to be conducted relating to traditional escape extinction
Values-Based Supervision – Group
Utilizing evidence-based practices within supervision can often seem black and white. When we assess the values of both the supervisor and the supervisee, those practices can be applied from a different perspective. This webinar addresses how to establish the supervisory relationship, management feedback within both the supervisor and supervisee’s values, as well as troubleshooting when things feel off.
- How to establish a supervisory relationship within the framework of ACT
- How to provide values-based feedback
- How to assess and troubleshoot supervisory issues with values and evidenced-based strategies.
We Don’t Train Parents: Why Words Matter When Extending Our Science – Group
For over a decade, leaders in our field have suggested a variety of ways we should disseminate our science. We discuss the limitations to those suggestions and offer a more realistic alternative that EVERY behavior analyst in all levels of a company, serving all populations can disseminate our science. We suggest alternative words to use when teaching others about our science, as well as other modifications we can make to our service delivery models to ensure outcomes and promote client buy-in, while staying true to our science.
