$35, 1.5 Continuing Education Units
We have known since the 1600s that there is no such thing as a “behavior problem”; the behaviors we observe are symptoms of an underlying cause. This workshop examines the causes that drive particular patterns of behaviors and the solutions to each. Participants will learn how to identify and accurately define the unsolved problem that motivates the behavior to occur, examine the patterns and principles of solutions based in inclusion and social justice, as well as explore research-based approaches to behaviors we identify as challenging.
