Interpersonal Skills for the Behavioral Consultant
“Establish yourself as a conditioned reinforcer. Just be nice, please.” —Stacie Neff, MS, BCBA
Join Stacie Neff, MS, BCBA, on the importance of soft or interpersonal skills that make or break the success of a consultant. Effective consultants can easily initiate meetings, respond professionally during interviews, actively listen during difficult conversations, and react to nonverbal and verbal behavior. Being a pro conversationalist may seem like an art form—you either have it or you don’t. Stacie, however, boils it down to the foundational components that help any professional communicate well with clients, families, and colleagues.
What you’ll learn in the course and be able to do afterward:
- This course establishes initial contact, interviewing, and active listening skills as the foundation, from which you will
