On-Demand Trainings In Behavioural Gerontology
Introduction to Behavioural Gerontology (2 BCBA CEUs)
This course is the perfect introduction to the field of behavioural gerontology for any ABA students or BACB certificants who have trained in working with other populations (such as people with ASD and IDD). In this training, we cover the basics about the field including the origins of behavioural gerontology, typical populations with whom behavioural gerontologists work and settings in which behavioural gerontologists tend to work. We then cover a variety of issues that are relevant for behaviour analysts working with older adults and discuss a selection of behavioural interventions from the literature and from our clinical practice. Throughout, we make comparisons to how behavioural gerontology work might be similar to or differ from work with other populations. Finally, we delve into some of the considerations that BCBAs need to be aware of when working with older adults such as treating excess disability, the effects of chemical restraint and ageism. The course is approximately 2 hours in duration and you will earn 2 BCBA CEUs for completing this course and passing the mini assessments. A certificate will be sent to the email address you signed up with after completion of the assessments. After purchasing the course you will have access for 90 days. Learn more about the course and view our FAQs here. Please note: This course is intended for those who have an undergraduate level understanding of ABA at minimum. We assume prior knowledge of concepts such as reinforcement, stimulus control and MOs.
