2019 and 2020 Course Descriptions

In our ongoing effort to disseminate safe, dignified, and effective assessment and treatment processes, FTF Behavioral Consulting is pleased to offer new training opportunities for busy professionals.

Classes size will be held to a maximum of 12 students to keep the learning experience intimate, and a minimum of four students to ensure a sufficient community of support both in and out of the classroom. Our courses are more than just a didactic experience—we help you address one of your challenging cases. For example, by the end of the PFA/SBT course, participating professionals will have had the opportunity to plan and conduct the PFA process, develop a personalized SBT plan for their client, begin implementing the plan, and receive feedback and problem solving assistance as the plan is implemented. This will be accomplished by training that includes:

  • Interactive lecture (first half of each class)
  • Clinical case review for 1 child/client per participating professional (second half of each class)
  • Private discussion board where participants will support one another with instructor guidance
  • Access to workbooks, data sheets, and graphing templates.

All courses will be taught by licensed, doctoral-level board certified behavior analysts (BCBA-Ds) or BCBAs enrolled in the final year of their doctoral training program. FTF trainers and consultants are experienced practitioners and researchers. Each has directly facilitated meaningful outcomes for children and young adults using PFA-based treatments and are actively contributing to the peer-reviewed literature on which all FTF training and consulting is based.

Participants:

Our courses are designed for Board Certified Behavior Analysts, Special Educators, Speech and Language Pathologists, and Psychologists. The only prerequisite for attending these courses is some training in Applied Behavior Analysis.

Continuing Education Credits:

Successful completion of the course will yield 16 Type 2 BACB continuing education credits. Four of the credit hours will be dedicated to supervision and 3 will be dedicated to ethics.

Scholarship:

Because our mission is about dissemination, we offer a limited number of partial scholarships. If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please fill out a form here.
