IBHS presents: "Building Cooperative Behaviors"
Imagine! Behavioral Health Services provides a FREE monthly training entitled “Building Cooperative Behaviors.” This four-hour training is offered at the Imagine! John M. Taylor Conference Center’s Middle Conference Room each month from 8:30 AM – 1 PM by Jeff Kupfer, PhD, BCBA-D
A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis
Participants will learn to recognize and understand principles of behavior, distinguish between proactive and reactive methods, and draw upon the cooperative behavior building methods to strengthen positive behaviors.
In order to build cooperative behaviors in others, we must learn to change our own behavior patterns and practices. This class provides a brief overview of selected evidence-based behavior principles based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We will review the dangers of using coercive and punitive methods to change behavior, and will focus on positive alternatives.
Parents, Caregivers, Professionals, Educators/Teachers and Community Members will learn to use Cooperative Behavior Building methods for behavior change by:
- Recognizing and understanding the five principles of behavior to enhance relationships
- Distinguishing between proactive and reactive methods and how these two approaches result in diverse outcomes
- Drawing upon Cooperative Behavior Building methods to increase positive behaviors and decrease challenging or problematic behaviors
Classes are free and open to the public
