About the Two-Day Advanced PFA/SBT Workshop

The two-day advanced workshop will focus on supporting improved behaviour and relationships for individuals with disabilities who display behaviours of concern. Dr Hanley will describe his advancements in practical functional assessment and skill-based treatment model, with an emphasis on safe, person-centred, and trauma-informed approaches for addressing behaviours of concern.

What makes this advanced workshop different to the introductory course?

This workshop will be designed for clinicians with theoretical or practical experience with the PFA and SBT process, as this will be assumed knowledge and it is important that all attendees get the most out of the experience.

What will be covered in this workshop

Day One – Saturday 21st September:

The latest iteration of the skill-based treatment process will be conveyed through lectures, interactive discussions, and application exercises. This workshop will emphasise the procedures for maximising the safety, televisibility, and shared rapport of the process. Teaching contextually appropriate behaviour following the shaping of communication and toleration repertoires will be described in detail. The knowledge of skill-based treatment will then be applied to specific learners in this part of the workshop. Dr Hanley will emphasise the values at the forefront of this compassionate and collaborative ABA approach along with the sequence of steps in therapeutic processes aimed at improving relationships en route to addressing problem behaviour.

Day Two – Sunday 22nd September:

The morning session will focus on Stereotypy Assessment and Treatment Process.  Stereotypy Assessment and Treatment process include capitalising on the reinforcing nature of stereotypy, teaching the appropriate times and places for stereotypy to occur, and teaching language, social, leisure, and academic skills that may eventually eclipse interfering forms of stereotypy. This workshop will discuss the conditions under which stereotypy should and should not be treated and the critical aspects of humane and effective treatments will be emphasised. Treatments that (a) capitalise on the reinforcing nature of stereotypy, (b) teach the appropriate times and places for stereotypy to occur, (c) yield language, social, leisure, and academic skills that may eventually eclipse interfering forms of stereotypy, and (d) are preferred by the person receiving the treatment will be described.

In the afternoon, there will also be opportunities for attendees to have a clinical case review and share this with the audience. Applications for the opportunity to present will open in July.
