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.
