New Course: A Training on PFA/SBT for Implementors (10 CEUs)

Dear Colleagues,

FTF is pleased to announce the release of a new course, “A Training on Practical Functional Assessment and Skill-Based Treatment for Implementors (10 CEUs).” This course was previously published under the title “A Training on Practical Functional Assessment and Skill-Based Treatment for Behavior Technicians.” Because behavior technicians are not required to earn CEUs, the course was priced and discounted with this in mind at $150. While the course was intended for behavior technicians, many BCBAs expressed interest in the course and contacted FTF asking if they can earn CEUs for completing the course. In response to that request, FTF created this identical version of the course that includes CEUs and is priced accordingly at our regular price $300. If you are a BCBA that completed the no CEU version of the course previously and would like to receive CEU credit, please email Dr. Anthony Cammilleri at


The roles of implementors in functional assessment and treatment processes vary widely. In this training, implementors will gain a clear understanding of the values and priorities underlying the Practical Functional Assessment (PFA) and Skill-Based Treatment (SBT) processes, as well as their multiple roles in these processes. Through a combination of lecture, active responding, video models, and computer-based differential feedback, they will learn how to talk about and implement the PFA and SBT processes with diverse client populations. Implementors will learn specific skills such as setting-up analyses, collecting and graphing data, how to bring the joy, progress an establishing operation, prompt a skill, differentially reinforce, respond to both mild and severe forms of problem behavior, and extend the skills to new evocative situations. They will also learn the more general skills of supporting and responding to parents and becoming an effective supervisee.
