PSY 543 - Behavioral Treatment & Systems Support Credits: 3


A study of the conceptual background and practical application of behavioral treatment techniques. With behavioral excesses, it is essential to determine the function that the behavior or set of behaviors is serving via behavioral assessment. Then, a functional treatment can be created to decrease excesses, which will be more effective and less restrictive than treatment that ignores function. Treatments to increase existing deficits in behavior will also be considered. Finally, considerations with regard to support of behavioral interventions within different settings (home, school, etc.) will be examined, including ethical considerations.
