From the Lab to the Street Complex Contingencies, Welfare, and Real Life Application Saturday March 20th, 11am-12:15pm EST Get ready for a deeper understanding of the applied part of applied behavior analysis. What does the errorless learning model, the constructional approach, or complex contingencies have to do with animal welfare? Discover how ABA and Animal Welfare Science intersect so that you can create evidence-based behavior intervention plans that work for human and animal clients alike. Bring your coffee, because in the last part of this three part series we’re going to geek out and turn complex concepts into action steps. This lecture builds on the last. In the final section of this three part series, we’ll move from the smallest unit of behavior analysis to what behavior looks like in real life. Advanced concepts will expand on existing knowledge to allow participants to think not only about simple training paradigms but also advance behavior intervention. Participants will be introduced to complex contingencies (avoidance of an aversive, avoidance of loss, cued avoidance, continuous-response avoidance, non-cued avoidance, avoidance of an aversive condition, avoidance of loss of a reinforcer, punishment by prevention-of-removal, and punishment by prevention-of-a-reinforcer), concurrent contingencies, the sick social cycle, functional assessment, the constructional approach, and the overlap between applied behavior analysis and welfare science. We’ll also expand upon where the veterinary team fits into this model and how veterinarians can help alter establishing operations so the pet can learn new skills. Interspersed throughout lecture material, participants will play an interactive quiz game with the presenter in order to hone their skills and gain true mastery of the concepts. Through this process participants will learn to look at larger units of behavior and identify the multiple controlling functions of that behavior or group of behaviors.
