Despite the fact that behavioral science has a boatload of research on the treatment of problem behavior, there are times when you have to wonder why we don’t use all of this info to prevent the development of problem behavior. This week, Dr. Shahla Ala’i-Rosales discusses just that possibility as well as how we can combine a prevention approach with the joy that should be a part of early caregiver interactions. If you’ve been feeling a tad robotic and prescriptive in your client interactions, this is the episode for you!

This episode is available for 1.0 LEARNING CEU.
