Response Blocking for Stereotypy: A Comprehensive Review of Procedural Variations
Response Blocking for Stereotypy: A Comprehensive Review of Procedural Variations. William H. Ahearn, Ph.D., BCBA-D November 12, 2015: 3:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. 3 Credits - BCBA Type II CEU. Attendance cost is $50.00   Stereotypic behavior is a persistent and challenging problem behavior in individuals with disabilities and persons with autism. Response blocking/response interruption and redirection (RIRD) is a frequently used procedure shown to be generally effective in the research literature. However, positive results are more likely to be published, and response interruption procedures do not always lead to desired changed in stereotypy. A brief discussion of the history of response blocking will be provided and then an overview of variants of RIRD, especially those recently reported in the research literature, will follow. A number of impediments to effective interventions will be discussed as well as the importance of variables other than stereotypy (e.g., appropriate alternative responding, time in intervention, aggression, and compliance). A brief overview of other effective treatment strategies for stereotypy as well as interventions that foster appropriate behavior will conclude the workshop. It will be suggested that response blocking/RIRD is a treatment that should not be the only procedure used when treating stereotypy and that a comprehensive approach that includes building appropriate alternative responding is most likely best practice. This presentation will allow many opportunities for audience input.   Dr. Ahearn joined The New England Center for Children in August 1996 and currently serves at the Director of Research. He is also Adjunct Faculty in Western New England University’s masters and doctoral programs. Bill was named the 2009 American Psychological Association - Division 25 awardee for Enduring Contributions to Applied Behavioral Research. Bill is the Past President of the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts  and formerly the Chair of Professional Practice for the Berkshire Association for Behavior Analysis and Therapy. Bill’s research interests include social skills in children with autism, verbal behavior, assessment and treatment of stereotypy, severe problem behavior and pediatric feeding difficulties. His work has been published in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, Behavioral Interventions, Behavior Modification, The Lancet, as well as the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders. Dr. Ahearn has written book chapters on teaching children with autism. He is currently on the Editorial Boards for the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, The Analysis of Verbal Behavior, and Behavioral Interventions and is Associate Editor of Behavior Analysis in Practice.

Titanic: In Concert
The sinking of the TITANIC in the early hours of April 15, 1912, remains the quintessential disaster of the twentieth century. A total of 1,517 souls—men, women and children—lost their lives (only 711 survived). The fact that the finest, largest, strongest ship in the world-called, in fact, the “unsinkable” ship-should have been lost during its maiden voyage is so incredible that, had it not actually happened, no author would have dared to contrive it. But the catastrophe had social ramifications that went far beyond that night’s events. For the first time since the beginning of the industrial revolution early in the 19th Century, bigger, faster and stronger did not prove automatically to be better. Suddenly the very essence of “progress” had to be questioned; might the advancement of technology not always be progress? Nor was this the only question arising from the disaster. The accommodations of the ship, divided into 1st, 2nd and 3rd Classes, mirrored almost exactly the class structure (upper, middle and lower) of the English-speaking world. But when the wide discrepancy between the number of survivors from each of the ship’s classes was revealed—all but two of the women in 1st Class were saved while 155 women and children from 2nd and 3rd (mostly 3rd) drowned—there was a new, long-overdue scrutiny of the prevailing social system and its values. It is not an exaggeration to state that the 19th Century, with its social stricture, its extravagant codes of honor and sacrifice, and its unswerving belief that God favored the rich, ended that night. The musical play TITANIC examines the causes, the conditions and the characters involved in this ever-fascinating drama. This is the factual story of that ship—of her officers, crew and passengers, to be sure—but she will not, as has happened so many times before, serve as merely the background against which fictional, melodramatic narratives are recounted. The central character of our TITANIC is the TITANIC herself. — Peter Stone Adult - $22.00 Seniors (65+) - $20.00 Child (10 and under) - $18.00

The Ethics of Supervision
The Ethics of Supervision. Jon S. Bailey, Ph.D., BCBA-D April 7, 2016: 3:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. 3 Credits - BCBA Type II CEU. Attendance cost is $50.00 Abstract: Behavior analysis is attempting to develop and improve its professional practices while rapidly expanding and facing significant challenges from consumers, government agencies, insurance companies, and related human services professions. The demand for well trained, certified or licensed behavior analysts is pushing our training programs to the limit producing more and more students and those graduates will need quality supervision in their practicum settings and on their first jobs.  We have believed for over a decade that any BCBA was qualified to supervise but new guidelines coming from the Board counter that assumption. Our Professional and Ethical Compliance Code describes ethical expectations for supervisors but they are not widely adhered to. In this presentation, I will describe the brief history of the concept of "supervision" in ABA, describe its origins, and offer an updated operational definition for our field. I will then review the relevant ethics items and describe in some detail the Best Practices that are being promoted by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.   Dr. Bailey received his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas in 1970 and is Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Florida State University where he was on the graduate faculty for 38 years and produced a record 63 Ph.D.’s.  He is currently Director of the FSU Panama City Masters Program in Psychology with a specialty in Applied Behavior Analysis and teaches Ethics & Professional Issues, Skinner’s Theory of Behaviorism, and Research Methods in ABA. He is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst; is a Fellow of the Association for Behavior Analysis: International and the American Psychological Association and is Secretary/Treasurer, Program Chair, and Media Coordinator for the Florida Association for Behavior Analysis, which he founded in 1980.   Dr. Bailey has published over 100 peer-reviewed research articles, is past-Editor of the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and is co-author of seven books: Research Methods in Applied Behavior Analysis, How Dogs Learn, Ethics for Behavior Analysts, How to Think Like a Behavior Analyst, 25 Essential Skills and Strategies for Professional Behavior Analysts, Ethics for Behavior Analysts, 2nd Expanded Edition and Ethics for Behavior Analysts, 3rd Edition, all co-authored with Dr. Mary Burch. One additional book is Performance Management: Changing Behavior that Drives Organizational Effectiveness, with Dr. Aubrey Daniels, published in 2014.   Recommended Readings: Bailey, J. and Burch, M. (2016) Ethics for Behavior Analysts, 3rd Edition. New York: Routledge, Inc. Bailey, J.S. and Burch, MB.
