Our Next Guest: A Conversation with Drs. Bridget Taylor & Peter Gerhardt
Promoting a positive quality of life is something that certainly falls within the parameters of behavior analytic intervention and socially significant outcomes. To make this happen, however, the development of meaningful instructional goals and the identification of relevant environmental modifications needs to start in elementary school and continue into transition, graduation and beyond. As with most, if not all of what competent behavior analysts do, this process is highly individualized and requires programming for both generalization and maintenance.
At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the difficulty in identifying the parameters of quality of life on a case-by-case basis.
- Identify a minimum of 5 personal or ecological parameters associated with a more positive quality of life.
- Identify behaviorally-based strategies that may improve an individual’s quality of life.
