Using Behavior Analysis to Help Children Manage their Emotions and Behaviors

Celia Heyman, MA, BCBA

Beth Glasberg, Ph.D., BCBA-D

This presentation will raise awareness for behavior analysts and other practitioners regarding how behavior analysis can be used to prevent and treat challenges that have traditionally been seen as “mental health” related. Specifically, recent advances have led to a better understanding of how to prevent and ameliorate behaviors that suggest anxiety or depression. Empirical support is steadily growing for skills-based interventions focused on expanding possible responses to triggering stimuli, including thoughts and feelings. This presentation will provide attendees with concrete strategies and resources to support children facing emotional struggles.

Attendees will:

  • Describe the process by which private events (thoughts, feelings, or language) may gain an evocative function (become triggers for problematic behaviors)
  • Describe the process by which hypotheses are tested regarding private events (how we can tell that our ideas about thoughts or feelings are correct)
  • Use private events as the antecedent stimulus in a sequence analysis (consider the function of problematic behaviors in response to thoughts)
  • Define clinically relevant behaviors and identify possible behaviors to increase given sample cases (recognize problematic behaviors and identify less problematic alternatives)
