Description

The bundle provides the participant with access to the following 3 courses included and an opportunity to earn a total of 5.5 General Learning Type CEUs upon completion of the 3 separate courses!

Course 1: Recorded: Affirming Sexual and Gender Orientations Through ABA Methodology (1 General CEU|~68 min)

Many BCBAs in clinical practice work with clients diagnosed with ASD; however, even though research has indicated that the majority of Autistic adults identify as LGBTQIA+/Queer, most BCBAs are not trained in LGBTQIA+ affirming care. Additionally, in working outside of Autism, there is still notable prevalence of LGBTQIA+ identities, particularly higher in the youth of today than ever reported in earlier generations. It is known that many of the factors contributing to queer persons’ mental health come down to feeling supported in their environments, having access to persons knowledgeable of their experiences, and having access to their communities. The risk of suicidality in queer youth is 3x higher than their peers; the risk of this for Autistic adults experiencing gender dysphoria is considered highest of all commorbid conditions in the DSM-5. Thus, practitioners, who help shape systemic behaviors in conjunction with those of their direct clients, run the very real risk of contributing to a queer client’s systemic oppression, of being a factor in the suicidality of the human they are charged with helping. This presentation is geared toward assisting BCBAs in their efforts to be affirming, to be aware, and to be a positive force for systemic change within their clients’ lives. We can be both affirming and solid in our science, we just need to know how.

Course 2: Recorded: Will I Lose My Dignity? ABA for HIV: a Powerful need for a Powerful Therapy (3.5 General CEU|~182 min) 

ABA is not Autism Therapy, and in this presentation, it is made very clear that BCBAs have skills they could already be applying toward other populations, including those impacted by a recent diagnosis of HIV. There are over 40,000 humans living with HIV in the United States, and new diagnoses are still occurring daily. Often, these newly diagnosed persons are left feeling stranded on an island, afraid to disclose their status to loved ones and supports, for fear of being judged or overly pitied. It is crucial that these individuals get into care and become adherent to their care requirements, but oftentimes, this does not happen and people fall out of services, declining in health on a path toward AIDS. Behavior Analysts, who commonly provide more skills-based coaching in the natural environment, are positioned in such a way that we can provide for the holes in the needs of the newly diagnosed individual, helping them make sense of their new life, planning for the future, and enacting on value-oriented behavior in the present. Additional information: This course will be available to you individually for $45.00 for a limited time (June 2022) and then it will move to an almost-full price of $90.00 (that will give you 3.5 ceus for the cost of 3 CEUs).  Our amazing instructor/partner, Nicholas, wanted to do this specifically because the need is so high for people with HIV/AIDS to access care. This is a cause extremely near and dear to Nicholas’ heart. On top of that from this course, CEUs by Study Notes ABA will be donating a percentage of our profits to Vivent Health, in St. Louis (where Nicholas lives). He has told us that St. Louis has one of the highest per capita HIV rates in the Western world, unfortunately. BUT this group is doing awesome work here to reduce the rates of new infections and to ensure people get wraparound care.  This group also partners with Empowered’s HIV Support Group, POZitive, Nicholas’ clinic.

Course 3: Recorded: Littles, Middles, and Bigs, Oh my! Getting BCBAs Acquainted with Adult Babies & Diaper-Lovers (AB/DLs) (1 General CEU|~62 min)

Is your client kinky? It’s okay — this is actually pretty common, and it is not at all detrimental to mental health! As a matter of fact, kinks, such as Adult Baby/Diaper Lover activities, have demonstrable mental health benefits. As practitioners assisting humans with disabilities, there can be difficulty in determining what is the kink and what is the impact of the disability; such is extremely true of adults who are acting like babies in specialized care settings. Additionally, there is a lot of assumptive conflation between common AB/DL activities and pedophilia, and these two things are extremely separate. This hour will delve into the world of Adult Babies & Diaper Lovers (AB/DLs), looking at how this identity and behavioral repertoire is established, what the functions of these behaviors often are, and how to help clients get their needs met…all while walking the fine line between best practice and negligence/abuse. Come prepared to face some very real talk!
