Professional Practice and Research Seminar 2

SCH PS552 - Professional Practice and Research Seminar 2

Credits: 2

This is the second in a three-course sequence designed to prepare students for the professional work commonly engaged in by Applied Behavior Analysts.  This course will focus on verbal presentation and interpersonal skills.  Students will learn strategies for presenting behavior-analytic content to a variety of audiences, such as to students/clients, their family-members, trainees/employees, other professionals, and colleagues.  Students will engage in and rehearse activities such as case presentations, research presentations, and mock training and consultation activities.  Issues related to the public perception of behavior analysis and related factors will be discussed.  This course will also continue to review behavior-analytic research in areas outside of autism intervention as the context for the verbal presentation skills that are emphasized in this class.
