Webinar: Anyone Can Punish, but Can You Reinforce? Solving Behavior Problems…Wednesday, August 20, 2014, from 11am to 12pm. Click here to register. Punishment stops behavior, but brings with it limitations and a significant downside, particularly for individuals with disabilities. Reinforcement builds behavior, and, put to good use, can provide a lasting antidote to challenging behavior. This webinar will suggest problem-solving questions that go beyond functional behavioral assessment to help you come up with solutions that go to the heart of the matter. Examples will be discussed and ample time will be devoted to questions. Presenter: David Powsner M.Ed. BCBA. David, a behavior analyst with 35 years of problem-solving experience, is the director of SD Associates LLC, a behavioral services company serving Vermont, the upper valley region of New Hampshire and western Massachusetts.
