UPABA July Webinar
The Upper Peninsula Association of Behavior Analysis (UPABA) will be presenting it's July Webinar on Friday, July 16, 2021 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm via Zoom. This month's webinar will include a presentation from Dr. SungWoo Kahng, BCBA-D entitled "Functional Analyses of Problem Behavior: Procedural Variations and Ethical Consideration."
ABSTRACT: Functional analyses are the gold standard in the assessment of problem behaviors. FAs are the most precise method of determining behavioral function, which informs the development of treatment. Despite the research supporting the efficacy of functional analyses, there continues to be reluctance on the part of practitioners to conduct the analyses on a consistent basis. This presentation will focus on procedural variations of functional analyses, which may make it more practical in specific situations. Additionally, it will present the argument that conducting functional analyses is the ethical choice.
