Training and Support Updates

FTF Behavioral Consulting has some updates on online and distance training opportunities to share with you.

Virtual PFA/SBT Workshop

We have been monitoring the developing situation around the Covid-19 pandemic closely and have decided to offer our workshop on a completely online platform as many may wish to avoid unnecessary travel and gatherings. Our goal is to deliver this workshop in the safest and most effective way possible while maintaining the personalized features of a live, in-person event.

Attendees will first complete a mastery-based 10-hr on demand course presented by Dr. Hanley on Practical Functional Assessment and Skill Based Treatment and a watch a follow-up Q&A session, all to be completed at the attendee’s convenience during the month of June. In addition to providing attendees with all implementation support material and information needed for this process, we have also included an opportunity for a more individualized experience through a live small-group planning session with one of our FTF’s Lead Consultants. This planning session will be provided on July 15-16 and will included a 1-hr Q&A session with Dr. Hanley, followed by a 3-hr IISCA and SBT planning session with an FTF Lead Consultant. This workshop also features the opportunity to receive 14 CEUs, including 2 in supervision and 4 in ethics
