Functional Analysis and Treatment Development with Dr. Heidi Eliers

Dr. Eilers will be taking a break from her post as Assistant Department Chair at the Chicago School in San Diego, CA, to present a workshop on Functional Analysis for Behavior Analysts. Participants will learn about practical methods for conducting FA's in non-traditional settings (schools, homes, community, etc.), and turning results into treatment strategies. If you're interested in utilizing one of our science's most powerful and efficient assessment strategies, but felt unsure about the tools or applications, this event is for you!

Date: March 1 and 2, 2019

Location: Green River Community College
COST: $225 for two days, plus 14.0 BACB Type-II Continuing Education Units

- EARLY-REGISTRATION SPECIAL: $200 for BOTH DAYS and 14 CEUs! Must register before January 31, 2019

About the Event

This workshop will provide a mixture of didactic, role-play, and practice for conducting traditional and modified functional analyses. A review of the components of the assessment process will be provided, as well as a review of a traditional experimental functional analysis based on Iwata, Dorsey, Slifer, & Bauman (1982/1994). 

Participants will 

  • Run and collect data for five conditions (i.e., Attention, Demand, Control, No Interaction, and Tangible),
  • Review and implement an interview-informed, synthesized contingency analysis (IISCA) (Hanley, Jin, Vanselow, & Hanratty, 2014),
  • Develop a two-condition alternating treatment design to determine the maintaining variables of problem behavior based on the interview results, and practice developing and implementing a two-condition sensory assessment to identify matched stimulation for behavior maintained by automatic reinforcement in the form of access to sensory stimulation. 
  • Practice running the conditions and collecting data. 
  • Develop a function-based intervention plan based on the IISCA results,
  • Practice teaching tolerance and delay to denial when using functional communication training as functionally equivalent replacement behavior,
  • Practice setting up the conditions and reviewing data to evaluate the function-based treatment,
  • Create graphs to visually inspect the data.
  • Evaluate the data to learn when to change to the next phase in the treatment plan.

​​Parent Training for Disruptive Behaviors and the RUBI Parent Training Program: A One-Day Workshop for ABA Practitioners

Connections Behavior Planning and Intervention welcomes Dr. Karen Bearss, PhD, to share recent issues and research from the RUBI Network on parent training and support! This event is tailored to BCBAs and BCaBAs working with parents to treat problem behaviors in home and community settings.

Dr. Bearss is Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington. The Research Unit on Behavioral Interventions (RUBI) Autism Network developed a manualized parent training program specifically for families of children with ASD and co-occurring disruptive behaviors. The program utilizes techniques grounded in Applied Behavior Analysis to teach parents how to manage their child’s behavioral problems. They have conducted a series of studies on the RUBI-PT program and found that it is acceptable to parents, can be reliably delivered by trained therapists, and reduces children’s noncompliant and disruptive behavior. Because it is a time-limited intervention (11-13 weekly outpatient visits), this PT program can be implemented in a range of settings, including clinics and schools.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a greater understanding of the prevalence, impact, and treatment of disruptive behaviors in ASD and how parent training is a promising line of treatment for these challenging behaviors.

Date: March 22, 2019
Location: Green River Community College, Auburn, Washington
COST: $150, includes 7.0 BACB Type-II Continuing Education Units

Upon completing this workshop, participants will

  • Describe the rationale for parent training (PT) as a front-line treatment for children with ASD
  • Compare the various types of PT for children with ASD, including current research findings
  • Describe content and delivery of the RUBI-PT program for children with ASD and co-occurring
  • disruptive behaviors
  • Summarize findings from a large-scale randomized clinical trial of the RUBI-PT intervention
  • Describe novel applications of RUBI-PT using telehealth and group delivery formats
  • Describe implementation of RUBI in clinical settings, including case examples
