Behavior Analysis Continuing Education at the University of Florida

The University of Florida’s Department of Psychology now offers online continuing education courses for behavior analysts. Taught by the top instructors in the field of Psychology, these fully-online courses allow you to conveniently maintain the continuing education requirement for BACB certification without having to attend onsite courses. The first event offered is titled, "Differential Reinforcement as Treatment for Behavior Disorders" and the instructor is Timothy R. Vollmer. This is a course designed primarily for board certified behavior analysts and board certified assistant behavior analysts. However, it may be of interest to parents, teacher, and other professionals who work with children with intellectual disabilities and/or autism. The course reviews basic principles of assessment and treatment for behavior disorders. A model for treatment based on "choice" is presented as a way of addressing severe behavior when extinction is not an option for practical or ethical reasons. more
