Episode 8 of Dissemination day goes live! In this video we are pulling together the thoughts and learning from all three of the practice leadership papers we looked at earlier in August and September.

If you missed our earlier ones - this one is for you! We also pick up on some of the feedback that you guys gave us in response to the individual videos.

Self-Injurious Behaviour Episode 9

Episode 9 of Dissemination Day discusses Self-Injurious Behaviour. The 'Harry' paper (Foxx, 1984) discusses issues of SIB which were so severe that it caused permanent harm to the individual and restraint became conditioned as a reinforcer.

Self-Injurious Behaviour Episode 10

This paper by Tiger et al (2009) describes a treatment for the skin picking behaviour of Jack, a young man with Asperger Syndrome. As part of the treatment Jack was given ownership of the process, enabling him to monitor and reinforce his own behaviour.

This is a discussion of a research paper by Hagopian, Rooker, & Yenokyan 2018

Self-Injurious Behaviour Episode 12

Treatments for SIB

This episode gives an overview of an important study by Iwata et al (1994) around the functional analysis of self-injurious behaviour. This leads onto a discussion around the current context in relation to functional assessment. **Remember that functional analysis should always follow ethical guidelines and only be carried out with close clinical supervision **

ABC/IRF/STAR - What should I use??

We absolutely hate seeing people filling out forms for the sake of it! 200 ABC forms sitting in a filing cabinet equates to one MASSIVE waste of time.

Data is important but use it wisely and use it well. This video discusses the problem with poor recordings, different kinds of recordings and what you should be doing with them!
