[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]

While the field of applied behavior analysis has grown substantially in the past 20 years, the vast majority of applied opportunities have been with learners with autism and other developmental disabilities to teach skills and address challenging behavior or to address challenging behavior in individuals who are not on the autism spectrum in general and special education settings. Recently, a growing number of behavior analysts focus their practice on addressing inadequate physical activity and nutrition in individuals in the general population increases the likelihood for disease, physical discomfort, and early mortality.

Nicolas Green, behavior analyst and owner of BehaviorFit, will briefly describe the risks associated with sedentary behavior (both at home and in the office as well as those) and the ongoing consumption of non-nutritive food and beverages and provide an overview of interventions rooted in behavior science used to address those issues. During the event, he will use three case studies to answer the following:

What behavior is chosen for intervention and why?

Once behavior is chosen for intervention, what happens?

Barriers to progress.

Benefits and risks to telehealth vs. face-to-face model.

Scope of practice concerns.

Learning Objectives:
1. Attendees will be able to describe the risks associated with sedentary behavior
2. Attendees will be able to describe how individual knowledge affects the scope of practice related to health and fitness
3. Attendees will be able to describe how feedback and goal-setting is used in a telehealth model
4. Attendees will be able to select an intervention potentially effective for physical inactivity
