The RBT is primarily responsible for the direct implementation of behavior-analytic services. This credential is recognized internationally as a way to provide direct behavioral therapy to support individuals diagnosed with developmental disabilities. This credential could also be used to help better understand behavioral concerns and improve the quality of behavioral supports. For example, parents, teachers, therapists, counselors, social workers, paraprofessionals and other individuals who directly support children or adults with behavioral concerns may benefit from this course. This course includes lectures and application activities in ethics, observation and data collection, skill acquisition plans and procedures, and behavior reduction plans and procedures. This course is based on the Behavior Analyst Certified Board (BACB) RBT Task List and is designed to meet or exceed the 40-hour training requirement for the RBT credential. The program is offered independently of the BACB.

Instructional Materials: Relias Learning Online Video Text Book

Instructional Methodology: This course will use a combination of class lectures and discussion, video modules, quizzes, and application activities where individuals are provided with opportunities to practice the skills they learn (e.g., writing behavioral support plans).

CWC BEGINNER SOCIAL MEDIA CIRCLE SESSIONS!  

Rose Caiazzo

Thursdays, March 15 & 29

9 am - 11 am

$75

Reserved for people that are 50 and older, these group sessions allow you to learn from Rose AND your peers at the same time.  Our first 2 hour session will be somewhat of a free-for-all... Rose will lay out all the ground rules, and the best ways to use the social platforms you’re interested in -- but, be sure to make your list of questions!  As a group, we may answer higher-level questions that delve into why you might have resistance to using social media… Or, why share anything when simply having a profile seems completely acceptable?  (Did you know this practice is widely known as being an “online lurker?”)  Why is it the younger generations can’t seem to pull themselves away from it?  How will social media help me, or the business I own?

Ask as many questions as you want and get them all answered!  Start a discussion with other people that have been in similar situations.  Learn the best ways to position yourself on social media, and how you can easily make time for being digital.  The second session is reserved for follow up discussion.  What did you learn?  Did you try something new?  How did it go?  Can you commit to doing it for a longer time period?  Rose will keep you accountable, but also your sharing with the group will allow you to gain a better understanding of why grand ideas for success did or didn’t always work as planned.
