Effective and Ethical Strategies for Reacting to Challenging Behavior

The webinar will cover the place, creation, and implementation of reactive strategies within a Positive Behavior Support Plan (PBSP). The training illustrates how to utilize the results of the Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) to react most appropriately to instances of challenging behavior when ongoing quality of life and proactive interventions are insufficient in preventing them. Many forms of reactive strategies can inadvertently escalate and reinforce challenging behavior when the original function of that behavior is not considered fully. Therefore, it is vital that PBSPs provide clear guidelines for how to avoid providing reinforcement for challenging behavior, while providing prompting and re-direction to more appropriate skills and behaviors that are taught and reinforced in other parts of the plan. The webinar will cover common misconceptions and incorrect implementation of reactive strategies, and how to adjust them to work safely, ethically, and best for an individual.
