One-size-fits-all: behavior intervention and management training curriculum

The aim of this project is to develop a one-size-fits-all behavior intervention and management training program that will convert well into application while fostering feelings of self-efficacy and confidence in the recipient. Such a program requires delivery of a broad and firm foundation concerning the nature of behaviors, and detailed explanation and practice of behavior analysis and modification techniques. The principles of behavior modification and learning theories examined in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) training and applicable to all behaviors and scenarios, equip clients with stronger behavior management skills that allow them to deal with a variety of challenges and situations regardless of age, gender, skill set, or circumstances. The author conducted in depth research on various methods for managing behavior in order to create a comprehensive program that would effectively apply to all caregivers and their diverse behaviorally problematic circumstances. The research included interviewing numerous educators, parents, behavior tutors, behavior analysts, direct care staff, and other caregivers, and reading and studying textbooks, academic research articles, behavior management training curricula and book, article and curricula reviews on a variety of topics including human behavior, behaviorism, ABA, behavior intervention, behavior management, classroom management, parent training, teaching styles and strategies, learning, etc. The information collected during this research was compiled and condensed into a solid structure of support for this new curriculum. As a result, the behavior management training curriculum created applies to all behaviorally problematic circumstances. It contains easy to follow, step-by-step direction for the trainer, which includes examples and ideas to keep the training session active and applicable to its audience. Training agendas and in-class and homework worksheets for each session are provided for the trainer to copy and utilize with the training participants. This training is designed for all caregivers, including parents, educators and anyone that takes an active role in helping others learn and be successful in whatever they do, and have a better quality of life.
