Technology and Self-Management for Building Independence

1 hours, 16 minutes
1.5 BACB

“. . . When somebody begins to monitor their own behavior, the behavior itself may change solely based upon this self-monitoring. The fact that the individual is now monitoring their own behavior is going to have an effect.”

Bobby Newman, PhD, BCBA-D


Dr. Newman starts this course by introducing the history of applied behavior analytic principles involved in some self-management strategies that are out there today. In addition to reviewing some history, join Dr. Newman and his colleagues as they take you on a journey of exploring the different processes and methods of self-management. They do so whilst reviewing self-management procedures’ effectiveness through an analysis of journal articles with a particular emphasis on unobtrusive, non-invasive, and common everyday life practices in the crucial process of developing independence through self-management.
