Description of Learning Type CE Event: This training focuses on how to use the principles of ABA to teach behavioral anatomy across the lifespan. The focus is on various ways to include anatomy instruction while also providing baseline instruction on anatomy to the viewer. The training provides resources and a toolkit filled with various approaches to teach anatomy to clients and covers both male and female anatomical internal and external anatomy. Additionally, the training covers how to approach sexual dysfunction and treat individuals and couples through ABA applications.

Disclaimer: Always remember that taking a CEU, even a multi-hour CEU is NOT enough to demonstrate competency in the content related to the CEU. It is YOUR responsibility to seek out supervision/consultation with the presenter and/or a subject matter expert (SME). The CBS/CBS-C certification is a SUB-field certification designed for the sub-field of SBA it does NOT lead to licensure of its own. Thus to practice with this certification, you’d have to be a BCBA® or BCaBA® via the BACB® and/or certified in your particular state as a Licensed Behavior Analyst.
