Learn strategies to help your clients to successfully extend the knowledge and skills gained in therapy into their daily lives. 

There are many barriers for children, youth and families to extend knowledge and skills gained in therapy to their daily lives.  This workshop will provide mental health professionals with a foundation to apply behavioural principals, helping clients to generalize new skills and manage behaviours that interfere with meeting their goals. Practical strategies to engage and accommodate harder to serve populations, maximize parent involvement, adopt function-based approaches to problem behaviour and facilitate intrinsic motivation will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Acquire practical strategies to help clients generalize skills from therapy sessions to their daily lives.
  • Understand applications for functional behaviour assessment to treating behaviours that interfere with positive outcomes.
  • Be able to use external rewards in a way that is sustainable and supports the development of intrinsic motivation.
  • Acquire practical strategies to engage and accommodate children with learning differences such as ADHD, LD and ASD during therapy sessions
