**This course will provide the participant with 1 Learning Type BACB CEUs**
Description of General Learning Type CE Event: Join us for our monthly Research Review Club on 6/11/23 where we will be covering: “FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT AND NONCONTINGENT REINFORCEMENT IN THE TREATMENT OF DISRUPTIVE VOCALIZATION IN ELDERLY DEMENTIA PATIENTS,” Buchanan & Fisher, (2002). 1 General CEU will be provided for participating in an online discussion and completing a final quiz based on the live discussion. It is strongly recommended that you read the article prior to the live event to get the most out of the course.
Research Abstract: Noncontingent reinforcement (NCR) was used as an intervention with 2 elderly dementia patients who engaged in disruptive vocalization. Several assessment procedures, including functional analysis, were conducted to identify reinforcing stimuli for use in the NCR intervention. Functional analyses and the NCR intervention were implemented in each participant’s natural environment. NCR was effective in reducing disruptive vocalizations.
Keywords: dementia, disruptive vocalizations, noncontingent reinforcement
