Abstract/Summary:

Self-injurious behavior is a significant challenge to professionals and family members. This workshop will be in three parts. First, we will review the nature and epidemiology of Self-Injurious Behavior (SIB). Second, it will review the evidence for effective treatment of self-injurious behavior and identify evidence-based practices. Finally, we will review the application of functional assessment and analysis and evidence-based interventions to SIB and identify solutions to common barriers to implementation.

 

Learning Objectives:

After attending this event participants should be able to:

1. Identify the prevalence and risk factor for SIB;

2. Name three evidence-based practices for SIB; and

3. Describe the application of evidence-based practices to individual cases.
