Description

**BUNDLE AND SAVE OPTION ONLY AVAILABLE THROUGH MONTH OF JUNE 2024!**

The bundle provides the participant with access to the following 3 courses included and an opportunity to earn a total of 5 General Learning Type CEUs upon completion of the 3 separate courses!

Course 1: Recorded: Growing Up Queer (1 General CEU|~62 min|CBS Level 1)

**This course will provide the participant with 1 General Learning Type BACB® CEUs**

Description of Learning Type CE Event: You don’t want to miss this one! Maxi Glamour (they/them), of the Boulet Brothers’ Dragula on Shudder, a self-identified kinky, neurodivergent queer, provides us with an intimate look at their growing up in the 90s and early 2000s through a personal narrative of their life as a youth! Narrative storytelling is something newer in Behavior-Analytic training, and it provides a wealth of socially-valid information. Join Nicholas Aether and Co-Presenter Maxi Glamour as they dissect the systemic behavioral variables and behavior-analytic principles that played into Maxi’s experiences and shaped them over time, which are commonly shared by many other queer youth today. This presentation is raw and real, and is unlike most of what you have probably experienced in continuing education before. You’ll leave with a behavioral understanding of how all this can influence your practice to be more affirming, less assumptive, and more likely to be helpful for your clients who don’t adhere to the behavioral repertoire of heteronormativity.

Course 3: Recorded: Values Clarifications without Imposition or Bias (2 General CEU|~113 min|CBS Level 1)

**This course will provide the participant with 2 General Learning Type BACB® CEUs**

Description of Learning Type CE Event: Values work has become a common theme in many behavior-analytic interventions as of late, particularly ones centering around Acceptance & Commitment Therapy/Training (ACT), including the common AIM curriculum. Values work can be illuminating as to the desires and goals a client may have, and provides a framework by which behavior can be self-controlled and aligned with best desired outcomes. Such, in turn, aligns motivating operations with completing therapeutic work and finding ways to generalize this into daily life. But what about when this work is being resisted, or is simply not producing results? Could it be that most of this work is kind of tedious and is based in visualizing a future, which is not always a skill our clients have? This seminar teaches Behavior Analysts ways in which values work can be more fun and engaging, and far more relatable, for some clients than traditional questionnaires or activities.
