Description:
When working with individuals who are exhibiting challenging behaviors, we must define, focus on, and reinforce the alternative or appropriate behaviors. This training will define behavior and how behaviors are learned and maintained. We will identify common behaviors among vulnerable populations, including individuals with paralysis and individuals with disabilities with whom coping becomes challenging. Finally, a discussion on intervention strategies and other techniques designed to help in de-escalating and managing behaviors.

Objectives:
• Define behavior and how behaviors are learned and maintained.
• Identify common behaviors among vulnerable populations with which become challenging to cope.
• Discuss intervention strategies and other techniques designed to assist in de-escalating and
managing behaviors.

Target Audience:
