Clinical Practice: Escape/Avoidance Hierarchies, Occupational Therapy Procedures, and Self-Control

Wednesday, August 2, 2017 -
1:15pm to 3:30pm

Health and safety skills are important targets in many programs. One way of developing cooperation in these programs is to present task-related stimuli in a hierarchy and gradually introduce these stimuli. Several examples of this will be presented. Sensory integration is an element in many approaches. This presentation will discuss the potential behavioral functions of sensory integration, and furthermore, discuss the implications for intervention. Finally, behavioral views of self-control, and research studies thereof, will be presented. Implications of these views for treatment will be discussed.
