The Institute for Behavioral Training (IBT) this week released ten of its top tips to minimize challenges for families of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) during the holiday season.
In partnership with CARD, the Institute for Behavioral Training (IBT) is offering an option for autism professionals to get continuing education units (CE’s) . On November 11th IBT is hosting a live webinar for BCBA’s and BCABA’s entitled “Monsters on Board – Maximizing Practitioner Effectiveness with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)”. The webinar will last 2 and a half hours and will offer 3 credits with a cost of just $75!
The Institute for Behavioral Training (IBT) will host a training on Nov. 11, 2013, in Marina Del Rey, Calif., to teach professionals the knowledge and skills necessary to ensure effective supervision of individuals who are pursuing certification from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB).
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT; Hayes, Strosahl, & Wilson, 2003) is a functional contextual approach to behavior change, rooted in applied behavior analysis (ABA) and Relational Frame Theory (RFT: Barnes-Holmes, Hayes, Barnes-Holmes, & Roche, 2002). ACT offers behavior analysts a “toolbox” for effectively addressing problematic private events that can interfere with the effective delivery of services to clients. When behavior analysts are able to identify problematic private events, they can then utilize research-demonstrated ACT techniques to maximize their effectiveness even in the face of extremely challenging clients (Snyder et al., 2011). This training is intended to provide an overview of the ACT model and its processes and to engage participants in both didactic and experiential exercises that will introduce them to the application of ACT in the workplace.
