NECS and Chamber Orchestra conclude the season with a celebration of Handel. In 1727, King George I decreed Georg Frideric Handel (originally of German decent) to now be a naturalized British citizen. Handel's first commission in his new land was to compose four Anthems for the Coronation of George II and Queen Caroline later that same year. These four Coronation Anthems have been part of every English Coronation since then. Today's concert features two of Handel's Coronation anthem's. the King Shall Rejoice and Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened. Rounding out our yearlong exploration of Messiah, the concert concludes with "Worthy is the Lamb", the majestic final chorus from the world's most beloved oratorio.

Mozart’s charming ‘Coronation’ Mass in C Major is a well loved by singers and audiences alike and Schubert’s Mass No. 3 in B-flat Major is an outstanding work that has gained greater recognition in recent years. Director Michael Driscoll notes, “Schubert and Mozart were just eighteen and twenty-three years old, respectively, when they wrote the works on today’s program. Although these works were written over two centuries ago, the music still captivates performers and listeners of today.” FAQs Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

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.

Skinner’s Analysis of Motivation: Ten Applications for Improving Autism Treatment. Mark L. Sundberg, Ph.D., BCBA-D March 10, 2016: 3:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. 3 Credits - BCBA Type II CEU. Attendance cost is $50.00 Abstract: Motivation plays a critical role in virtually every aspect of human behavior. Its importance in the analysis of behavior is a major theme throughout Skinner’s writings (e,g., 1938, 1953, 1974), especially in the book Verbal Behavior (1957). In these writings, Skinner details the many distinctions between motivation and stimulus control and suggests they constitute two separate types of antecedent control, a point elaborated on extensively by Michael (e.g., 1982, 1993, 2007). This presentation will demonstrate the value of including the concept of motivating operations (Michael, 2007) into autism assessment and intervention programs. Ten specific applications of the MO will be described, each of which could improve a child’s overall program, but in combination these applications could produce even greater gains in linguistic, social, academic, and functional living skills. Mark L. Sundberg, Ph.D., BCBA-D received his doctorate degree in Applied Behavior Analysis from Western Michigan University (1980), under the direction of Dr. Jack Michael. He is the author of the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP), and co-author of the original ABLLS and the book Teaching Language to Children with Autism or Other Developmental Disabilities. He has published over 50 professional papers and 4 book chapters. He is the founder and past editor of the journal The Analysis of Verbal Behavior, a twice past-president of The Northern California Association for Behavior Analysis, a past-chair of the Publication Board of ABAI, and has served on the Board of Directors of the B. F. Skinner Foundation. Dr. Sundberg has given hundreds of conference presentations and workshops nationally and internationally, and taught 80 college and university courses on behavior analysis, verbal behavior, sign language, and child development. He is a licensed psychologist with over 40 years of clinical experience who consults for public and private schools that serve children with autism. His awards include the 2001 "Distinguished Psychology Department Alumnus Award" from Western Michigan University, and the 2013 "Jack Michael Outstanding Contributions in Verbal Behavior Award" from ABAI’s Verbal Behavior Special Interest Group.

Brain Injury, Behavioral Neurology and Behavior Analysis. Harvey E. Jacobs, Ph.D., CLCP February 11, 2016: 3:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. 3 Credits - BCBA Type II CEU. Attendance cost is $50.00 Abstract: Acquired brain injury is a leading cause of death and disability in the country and the science of human behavior offers powerful technologies that can help address many leading issues. While some of this work has been accomplished over the past 20 years, there is much more to be accomplished. Being an effective behavior analyst in this field requires a clear understanding of behavioral principles, brain and behavior relationships, as well as working in complex medical, community, cultural and social environments. Perhaps one of the biggest challenges is to overcome historical concerns regarding mentalism. There have been tremendous strides in the neurological sciences over the last decades that have opened up the "black box," eschewed a number of explanatory fictions and expanded opportunities for empirical investigation. As with any discipline, including our own, it is still necessary to sort the wheat from the chaff. This presentation will provide an overview of brain injury, basic aspects of neurophysiology, key contributions that behavior analysis offers, and guidelines for behavior analysts who are interested in this field. Harvey E. Jacobs, Ph.D., CLCP earned a Ph.D. in Psychology from Florida State University, a post-doctoral fellowship in Behavioral Pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and was a Mary Switzer Research Fellow of the National Institute of Handicapped Research. Dr. Jacobs has served on multiple medical school faculties, worked on-staff, in administrative roles and as a consultant to numerous programs and facilities. He has been principal investigator on multiple federal, state and private grants. Current interests include life care planning; rehabilitation for neurological, psychiatric, medical and intellectual impairments; applied behavior analysis; and complex treatment issues across the life span. Dr. Jacobs has published and lectured widely. He is the author of Understanding Everybody’s Behavior After Brain Injury: Don’t "Don’t!"® and Behavior Analysis Guidelines and Brain Injury Rehabilitation: People, Principles, and Programs. He currently serves on the Board of Editors of the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation, previously on the editorial board of the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, and reviews for other professional journals. Dr. Jacobs serves on the Board of Directors of the North American Brain Injury Society and on the Board of Trustees of the United States Brain Injury Alliance. He is also one of 50 professionals recently selected by the Brain Injury Association of America helping to draft national guidelines for the rehabilitation and chronic disease management of adults with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury.

The words house and home carry powerful and emotional associations. While house refers to a physical structure meant for habitation and shelter, the meaning of home is infinitely varied, complex, and evocative. For some, the word home conjures up happy memories of family, security, and comfort. For others, the concept of home holds more conflicted responses, those of displacement, alienation, or strife. As containers for living, the forms that the house and the home take are as varied as the human desires they hold. The historic and contemporary paintings, prints, photographs, and drawings from the Addison's collection presented in this exhibition give evidence of the multiple types of dwellings that humans have constructed for themselves, the many ways in which those spaces are inhabited, and the wide range of emotions and associations attached to them.

As individual objects, works of art offer a multitude or meanings and references. The rich information embedded in a single work is amplified when considered in relation to other art objects. In One Thing Leads to Another, works are juxtaposed to provoke conversation and enhance understanding of particular themes. The ideas represented in one gallery lead into the next to create a path of sequential inquiry. The progression starts with images of play-acting and masquerade, including work by Cindy Sherman among others, then leads to Nick Cave's video animation of object through movement, followed by a selection of images that capture the body in movement by such artists as Eadweard Muybridge and Harold Edgerton, and concludes with depictions of the female body by a range of artists from Abbott Thayer to Ida Applebroog.
