Please note, Thera-Chats are optional to attend but would love to have you join us for the topics most helpful to you!

April 2024 Topic:

An Introduction to Behavior Reduction

In educational settings, addressing unwanted behaviors among students is paramount for creating conducive learning environments. This Thera-chat presentation, "An Introduction to Behavior Reduction," delves into effective strategies that all therapists can use to target and reduce undesirable behaviors in the students we work with. This presentation offers an introduction to some basic principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and provides lessons in using antecedent and consequential strategies for effective behavior reduction and meaningful change for the students. We'll examine reinforcement and punishment strategies and also address ethical guidelines and possible concerns with implementing either type. We'll provide a quick introduction to the methods used by Behavior Analysts so that our Invo educators and therapists can have a simple toolkit for how to react when unwanted behaviors arise.

Presenter: Jessica Burris, MS, BCBA, LBA is the Program Director of Invo's Hawai'i team. She has worked in the ABA field for over a decade in school, home and clinic settings with children and adults with a wide range of behavioral concerns. She has also been a school counselor for special needs students as well as an Instructor for the University of Hawai'i's Applied Behavior Analysis Masters program. Jess loves helping kiddos succeed and passing on ABA knowledge to all!
