Functional Analysis and Treatment of Severe Behavior Disorders


Presenter: BRIAN IWATA, Ph.D.
www.bisoxford.comSponsored by Behavior Intervention Specialists, Inc.

The most significant advancement in the assessment of severe behavior disorders over the past 20 years has been the development of functional analysis methodology.  This approach has been mandated in a number of federal standards, state guidelines, court decisions, and in IDEA amendments of 1997, 2004. Extensive research has shown that functional analyses are invaluable in guiding decisions about treatment selection and can produce clinically significant outcomes without the necessity of using punishment procedures.  As a result, functional analysis is now considered “best practice” for identifying the causes (maintaining variables) of behavior problems such as self-injury, aggression, stereotypy, and noncompliance.

Dr. Brian  Iwata received his Ph.D. in Psychology from Florida State University and is currently Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Florida, Director of the Florida Center on Self-Injury, and Director of the UF-ARC Prader-Willi Syndrome Program.  He previously held faculty appointment at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Western Michigan University.  Dr. Iwata is the field’s foremost researcher on functional analysis methodology, and in this workshop he will provide a comprehensive review of all the currently used techniques. The emphasis will be on translating research into practical application, with extensive use of case examples, audience exercises, and handouts.

  1. Rural and other telephones that were not on a common battery exchange had a magneto or hand-cranked generator to produce a high voltage alternating signal to ring the bells of other telephones on the line and to alert the operator.
