Organization-wide Strategies for Implementing Person-Centered Practices and Positive Behavior Support (正向行為支援 PBS )
Presented by Rachel Freeman, Ph.D. University of Minnesota
Friday, November 18, 2016 3:00 - 4:30 pm EST
This webinar will describe an organization-wide planning model that integrates person-centered practices, organizational workforce planning, and positive behavior support in human service organizations in Minnesota. Examples will be shared that demonstrate how twelve teams are using data-based decision making to guide implementation efforts within mental health organizations, IDD providers, and within county systems in two regions of the state.
Rachel Freeman is the Director of State Initiatives for the Institute on Community Integration at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Freeman has been actively involved in positive behavior support (PBS), statewide technical assistance systems for evidence-based practices, evaluation design and implementation, and person-centered practices for over 25 years. She conducts research and provides consultation and technical assistance at the state, regional, and local levels to teams implementing PBS and other practices within IDD organizations, education, juvenile justice, and mental health systems. Dr. Freeman has served as a member of the Board of Directors for the Association for Positive Behavior Support for over ten years and as President for three years. Her research interests include implementation factors associated with research to practice, PBS, physiological and biochemical factors related to problem behavior, online instructional systems, and inter-agency systems change.
Workshop: Progressive ABA – 4 Children’s Journey This 1 day workshop is aimed to provide an in-depth observation at four children's journeys over time in an AutismPartnership program. During the workshop, participant will see how the children were before treatment and observe closely their own individual paths of treatment over a period of years.
Dr Leaf will explore the many different aspects of programming including dealing with behaviour problems, learning how to learn skills, social development, learning in groups and language acquisition.
A video journey will be complemented with Dr. Leafs careful analysis of why specific programs were done at specific times and how the curriculum and approach was flexibly used to help each student develop their skills.
This is a fascinating insight into AP's unique approach and the journey and development of four very different children in a progressive ABA program.
