"Putting It All Together" is a four part series integrating practical applications of relevant applied social science and cognitive behavior therapy concepts to support strategies for individuals with cognitive, emotional, and social differences in home or residential placement in the community.

Part 3 of this series discusses choices.  Choice is a thought process.  It can be conscious or unconscious.  Human beings exercise choice based on a risk-benefit analysis.  This webinar will discuss the process of choice in terms of behavior support strategies for individuals with cognitive, emotional, and social differences.  It will describe ways to influence choice-making to promote a good fit with the environment and to avoid choice hazards that increase risk and cause conflict with the social group.

Why do you do that photoWhy Do You Do That?

Executive function refers to brain functions that activate, organize, integrate, and manage other functions.  It allows us "to see down the path" of our actions to understand the consequences.  It helps us to focus and shift to other tasks.  Family members and caregivers can often become frustrated when a person struggles with their executive functioning skills.  This training will help us understand the struggles and what adaptations we can make to improve the quality of a person's life.
