Session: Towards Trauma-Assumed Applied Behavior Analysis: Implications for Policies on Restraint & Seclusion
Dr. Hanley will give a talk on the trauma-assumed ABA and its implications for policies on restraint and seclusion on September 15, 2021 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM.
In this webinar, Dr. Hanley will briefly describe a contemporary and trauma-assumed version of applied behavior analysis for consideration when working with autistic persons or those with intellectual disabilities, especially when problem behavior is probable. The values at the forefront of this compassionate ABA approach will be explained along with their implications for how to respond to both mild and severe forms of problem behavior. A brief review of the direct effects of the approach will be followed by program level evaluations of the global and secondary effects of the approach. A reliable and sensitive system for monitoring the behavioral health of persons with autism will be detailed along with the implications for policies related to restraint and seclusion. The webinar will conclude with some opportunity for discussion.
1. The attendee will be able to describe the three values that have implications for how to respond to mild and severe forms of problem behavior.
2. The attendee will be able to describe the most important knowledge for staff who provide direct support to children, adolescents, or adults with autism.
