Weeding Out Coercion in Otherwise Compassionate Environments with Camille Kolu, BCBA-D and Evelyn Gould, BCBA-D
This training offers ideas, strategies, and tools for minimizing coercion and fostering appetitive environments that promote thriving - whether it’s your relationship with yourself that needs some caring, or the one you’re trying to foster with a client or their caregiver, or a relationship with a staff member or mentee, or any other relationship that matters to you. At its foundation, our work as behavior analysts requires each one of us to view ourselves as the context for promoting thriving (in ourselves and others). Come learn with us, as we discuss, model and practice context-sensitive strategies for growth, connection and meaning. We will explore how each of us can become a nurturing environment for others and ourselves.You will learn from an ACT and trauma-informed perspective as you dive into the messiness of human experience and try some screening, assessment, and intervention strategies that move you flexibly toward what matters.
