Description

Person-centered planning (PCP) has become a staple of service delivery systems for people with developmental disabilities. Research on PCP has been equivocal at best, although outcome failures are generally attributed to implementation failures. The science of behavior analysis provides many solutions to the problems described in the PCP literature. Additionally, behavior analysts must be prepared to adjust to working in a team-based system that is based largely on humanistic, rather than scientific, foundations. This event will provide information regarding the philosophical basis of PCP, common practices, triumphs and limitations, as well as ways the behavior analyst might be able to help the process. We will also discuss ways the work of the behavior analyst might be impacted by this team approach. 1 Type 2 BACB CEU is being offered for this course. This course is offered independent of the BACB.
