[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]
Aggressive behavior is common in many clinical populations, such as individuals with autism, intellectual disabilities, psychiatric disorders and mild aggression is commonly seen in typically developing children.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) offers a unique perspective on functional assessment and functional analysis of aggressive behavior, function-based treatment and caregiver training. This workshop will review recent research on (1) the nature, prevalence, and risk factors for aggressive behavior; (2) functional assessment and functional analysis of aggressive behavior; (3) function-based treatment; (4) evidence-based ABA practices to prevent aggression, teach alternate behavior; and (5) application to specific cases.
After viewing this workshop participants will:
1. Describe the prevalence and risk factors for aggressive behavior;
2. Describe recent research on functional assessment and analysis of aggressive behavior;
3. Name function-based treatments and
4. Describe evidence to support their use
