2.0 Type II CEUs for BCBAs are available for this event through Behavioral Science in the 21st Century.
Select the type of CEs you will want at purchase, if any.

As interest in Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) and Relational Frame Theory (RFT) has increased many behavior analysts have begun to seek out ACT-focused training. We are offering a special introduction to ACT and RFT concepts meant to help introduce you to the dynamics of verbal behavior.

We will utilize experiential material drawn from media, art, and music, as well as your own learning histories to introduce you to the fundamentals of the model and shift your perspective, artfully. As you learn, you will be working on your own behavior analytic inspired piece (choice of 1 of 2 designs) in a live Paint & Experience training. After the live training, we will hand out evaluations to attendees and issue CE certificates to those who attended for credit.

Each person will receive an 8″ wide by 10″ tall canvas with art pre-traced onto the canvas for ease of painting. Our artist facilitator will be present throughout the event to inspire thought, fun, and assist you in painting. We ask for 24-hours or more notice for cancelations for refunds. No shows will not receive refunds or credit. On the day of the event, arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the event. The speaker will come to the front waiting area to call the group back at 3pm.

Through this workshop you will:

1. Identify the importance of rule-governed behavior in higher level thinking.
2. Explain the importance of metaphor to creating flexibility towards verbal symbolic rules.
3. Define transformation of stimulus functions.

Tickets must be purchased at least 48 hours ahead of the event to assure that supplies are available for all attendees. Purchase tickets here: https://behavior-behavior.org/shop/
