  14. The Behavioral Approach: Step 1 • Pinpoint the stressful emotions, feelings, and behaviors. • Are your symptoms medical? Get a check-up. • Have you developed symptoms that could later interfere? Make data sheets. • Analyze data using standard ABC analysis with the addition of “Setting Event.” Bailey, J., & Burch, M.

  16. The Behavioral Approach: Step 2 • Perform a Functional Analysis • Record instances of problematic behavior and troublesome emotional states  Scatter plots • Once you think you have found the controlling variable, test your hypothesis  Change it up! • “Apply what you know to solve your own personal problems.” Bailey, J., & Burch, M. (2010). 25 essential skills and strategies for the professional behavior analyst. New York, NY: Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

  17. The Behavioral Approach: Step 3 • Develop a short term intervention • Depending on the results of your functional analysis, it may be possible to develop a short term plan that results in relief. • Better time management  record TV shows, schedule phone calls • Be assertive  Say no to increasing work load, consult with a supervisor about dissatisfied parents. Bailey, J., & Burch, M. (2010). 25 essential skills and strategies for the professional behavior analyst. New York, NY: Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

  18. Step #4 Step #1 Step #2 & #3

  19. The Behavioral Approach: Step 4 • Develop and adopt a long-term plan. • This could involve major life changes that involve short term stress but long term relief. • Moving out of a noisy apartment. • Breaking up with an argumentative partner. • Setting up your own practice. Bailey, J., & Burch, M. (2010). 25 essential skills and strategies for the professional behavior analyst. New York, NY: Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

  20. In Conclusion • “Being a behavior analyst can be both a blessing and a curse.” • We have a deep understanding of human behavior and everyone around you expects you to solve your own behavior problems. • We should be able to analyze our own behavior and create positive changes by implementing appropriate interventions.
