Course Description

This webinar will take the guesswork out of data collection and help you to add meaning and significance to the data you collect.  We will talk about the different methods of collecting data and the different dimensions of behaviour that you can use when you collect data. We will talk about the intersection between Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and the Relational Framework and how data collection can be used to strengthen your CYCP practice. We want to debunk the myths surrounding data collection strategies, clarify the different types of data collection and empower you to use multiple data collection and analysis strategies in your CYCP practice.

Learning Outcome

At the end of this webinar Child and Youth Care Practitioners in a school or residential setting will be able to:

  1. Create Data collection plans that add clinical and social significance to your behaviour modification plan development process.
  2. Describe the theoretical framework of Applied Behaviour Analysis and how you can use it to strengthen your data collection practices.
  3. List the two types of data collection and the five dimensions of behaviour.
  4. After looking at an example of a specific behaviour you will be able identify what dimension of behaviour it is occurring in and which dimension of behaviour to take data on.

Who Should Attend?

Evidenced-based interventions and programs are highly valued in program design, implementation, and evaluation. Historically the CYCP discipline has resisted using systematic approaches to changing behaviour, by the very nature of the relational framework. This webinar will delve into the intersection between ABA and the relational framework, debunking the myth that systematic strategies do not fit with the relational framework.

This webinar is designed for classroom and residential CYCP’s who want to sharpen their data collection skills and learn more about how data can be directly linked to socially meaningful behaviour change programs. If you have ever been asked to collect data, developed some sort of behaviour modification program, or observe, this webinar is for you.  We will talk about how to bring clinical meaning to data collection for in school, residential and community settings.
