Description: Anxiety disorders are prevalent among individuals with autism; however, many ABA practitioners feel it is beyond their scope of practice. Anxiety can be difficult to observe and measure, so how do we use ABA principles to understand and treat it? In this full day workshop, participants will explore how to conceptualize anxiety from a behavioural analytic perspective and the implications for treatment in individuals with ASD.
Learn how ABA principles can be applied to conceptualize anxiety.
Understand the effects of private events and experiential avoidance on overt behaviours.
Discuss practical and ethical implications for the assessment and treatment of anxiety in individuals with autism spectrum disorders.
