Trainer Bill Lanphar kicks off The Refugio Training Project with a free training "Applied Behavior Analysis: The Good The Bad and The Ugly" at the Santa Barbara Central Library in the Faulkner Gallery West on Saturday January 16th from 1pm 3pm. The training is limited to 10 participants with confirmed reservations.
The mission of The Refugio Training Project is to provide training for families, schools and community providers who are supporting children, teens and adults diagnosed with Autism and other learning disabilities who no longer have access to training, often due to budget restraints, in the successful application of Applied Behavior Analysis and Positive Behavioral Supports. APA and its primary tool, the functional analysis of behavior (aka functional assessment, functional behavioral assessment) is based on the behavioral learning model.
The training will focus on the application of APA in the Positive Behavioral Supports tradition with an emphasis on adjusting the Antecedent rather than the Consequence side of the ABC (aka SRC) learning model. We will explore the benefits of such analysis for better understanding why "problem behaviors" occur as well as how poorly conceived or implemented behavior plans can end up actually teaching an individual to engage in disruptive behavior, especially power struggle related behavior.
