This course will review the principles of applied behavior analysis and how it can be effectively used in brain
injury rehabilitation. Participants will gain an understanding of the underlying mechanisms that contribute to the
brain-behavior relationship. The potential positive and negative effects of medication and the importance of close
monitoring will be reviewed. The course will describe the primary ethical concerns with implementing a sound behavioral
program. Ten general management guidelines that will help reduce the occurrence of behavior problems is presented.
The ABC's (antecedent, behavior and consequence) principles of applied behavior analysis will be outlined, as well as
how to write an effective behavior plan with a variety of procedures. In conjunction, a number of data collection methods
that allow for an efficient review of behavior programs will be taught. Lastly, is a review of the "assault cycle" and
how to prevent a crisis situation and safely intervene if necessary.
