WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Download the registration brochure for the workshop.

The functional analysis of problem behaviors (Iwata, Dorsey, Slifer, Richman, & Bauman, 1982/1994) exhibited by individuals with developmental disabilities has become the gold standard of care during the treatment of these problem behaviors. Yet, there are commonly held misconception about its use. The first part of this presentation will describe the use of functional analyses to develop effective behavioral interventions as well as the research that supports its use. The second half of the presentation will discuss commonly held views about the use of functional analyses in practice (e.g., too difficult, not useful for all behaviors/individuals, unsafe) in terms of what are valid and invalid concerns.

Board Certified Behavior Analysts can earn 6 Type II CEs at each workshop!

Mood checkups
Oct 9 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Caldwell University’s Counseling Center will collaborate with the Mental Health Association of Essex County and offer free mood check-ups to the community as well as students, staff and faculty of the college. The checkups will be offered 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, in the Newman Center lobby and 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, in the Werner Hall lobby.

 Robin Davenport, Caldwell University’s director of counseling services, says the screenings will help people determine if they need to get further help. She wants to get out the message that early intervention is key and that depression and anxiety are treatable conditions. “By conducting these very brief screenings, counselors are able to detect whether someone might be struggling with depression, bipolar disorder, an anxiety disorder or post-traumatic stress,” Davenport says. She says counselors can then make referrals to outside treatment providers, if necessary, or for students to the college’s counseling center.

 “Undoubtedly, symptoms of depression and anxiety can significantly impact a person’s ability to perform satisfactorily on the job or in college and could have a devastating effect on relationships, the workplace and overall quality of life,” Davenport says. She explains that it is important for people “to ensure that they are caring for their mental health. In the same way that individuals make sure they have their annual physicals, they should be sure to annually check up on their emotional well-being.”
