The bundle provides the participant with access to the following 3 courses included and an opportunity to earn a total of 7 General Learning Type CEUs upon completion of the 3 separate courses!
Course 1: Recorded: Sociosexual Behaviors Across the Lifespan (2 General CEU|~115 min)
Behavior Analysts commonly work with children, and can work with teens, adults, and seniors, as our science is valid for all populations. However, in determining what is expected/unexpected behavior, or in determining what may be detrimental to social success, BCBAs must be aware of current trends in data that reflect the behaviors commonly engaged in across the lifespan. It is too easy to overreact to common behaviors because the practitioner is unaware of the lack of impact such behaviors may have on an individual’s overall development. Similarly, it could be dangerous to assume all behavior is socially-valid or commonly expected. Thus, this presentation looks at what is trending re: sociosexual behavior, while also emphasizing the reality that interventions must still consider an individual’s desired life outcomes as being integral in determining what behaviors are intervention-worthy.
Course 2: Recorded: Learning Theory for BCBAs: The Giver as a Framework (3 General CEU|~174 min)
Behavior Analysts are among the most sought-after providers of therapeutic learning methods, and are often very aware of how this science works, but unlike other therapy providers, Behavior Analysts don’t spend much time learning about the various ways people are postulated to learn. We are often taught a purely behavioral framework, which is aligned with our pillars and principles. However, our Learning Theory, Behavioral, is not the only one that has been empirically tested and found valid and reliable for use in therapeutic processes, so in our efforts to adhere to the standards of best practice, it becomes a catch-22: do we avoid learning important things because they aren’t explained by classic Behaviorism, at the risk of not growing while other fields do? Not intended as an answer for that, but rather as a simple and open source of information, this lecture is designed to help Behavior Analysts keep their “correct hats on” while also exploring information that could possibly be utilized to supplement practice, or at the very least, to have language from outside our field when trying to communicate with other provider types. All of this will be in a fun format, comparing various theories and methodologies against the famous story, The Giver (Lowry, 1993).
Course 3: Recorded: Sexual Behaviors in the Digital Age (2 General CEU|~118 min)
In this, the Digital Age, we have found ourselves at the mercy of technology, it often seems to parents, guardians and caregivers…and even to Behavior Analysts. What do we do to keep minors and/or adults with ID safe when the world is one click away, and circa half the information is false, the people are technically strangers with their own agendas, and porn is seemingly everywhere? Also, how do we promote critical thinking toward safety without enforcing heteronormative or other value-based standards upon adult humans with ID who wish to engage in sociosexual and sexual behaviors online, allowing them the same rights as their neurotypical peers? What is and is not appropriate? Is that even answerable?! Oh my…if this is what your brain does when you start thinking about this subject, you might want to attend! This 2 hour course covers current normed trends and also the okay-ness of deviance from norms, how to address porn use by minors, and ways of addressing sexting and catfishing.
