The following CEU event is geared towards Mental Health Professionals:

This workshop will focus on the application of behavioral modification approaches to the neurodevelopmental disorder autism. There will be a brief review of the history, fundamental concepts, and the development of different types of approaches.

We will review both assessment and treatment issues, providers, settings, and the level of empirical validation of methods. We will examine how to differentiate types of referral issues and when behavioral methods are primary, augmentative, deficit versus problem based, and direct service versus consultative.  We will understand the fundamentals of a behavioral intervention program as well as concerns and criticisms. The goal is to understand the importance of these methods for an autism population, recognize what are appropriate referral questions and to whom, and recognize elements of a sound program application.

Come join us for this virtual and affordable continuing education opportunity at the Hope and Healing Center & Institute. Register today for event access.

Cost: $25 Per Person
CEU Credit Hours Available: 1.5 Hours
