Course Description

Are you a teacher having a behavior management problem in the classroom, or a parent with an unruly, uncooperative child? Would you like to know how behavior management works, and how it can help? Suitable for teachers, educators, parents, and college instruction, our Applied Behavior Management course gives a complete overview of behavior management and keys to controlling behavior.  

Each lesson defines and explains key terminology in a clear, easy-to-understand format. This 9-lesson course not only provides methods for dealing with problem behavior in children of all ages both at home and at school, it provides an in-depth explanation of the science of behaviorism and explores both classical and operant conditioning theories. This course also gives a complete overview of early key researchers in the field of behaviorism, and discusses their experimental methods and findings.

Information from multiple sources provides accurate, complete information, and embedded links within the chapters provide further reading and information for additional study. Each lesson concludes with a series of true/false and multiple choice questions designed to test retention of the information provided.

Classroom management techniques explored in this course include behavior modification basics for dealing with young children, techniques for the classroom, token economies, the bead system, the ticket system, strategies for parents, behavior management through positive discipline, power teaching, T.E.A.M. discipline, and functional assessments. We'll also explore the various types of aggression, including hostile aggression and passive-aggressive behavior.

Behavioral techniques are easier to implement than you think – once you know how. Our Applied Behavior Management course will help get you on your way to a calmer home and a more organized classroom.

Human behavior is one of the most pervasive, yet varied, elements of society and interpersonal relations. Whether one interacts with others electronically, or in person, whether one isolates at home, or is a social butterfly, behavior is everywhere. Even plants exhibit behavior!

One of the biggest challenges in behavior management is shaping the behavior of young children. With such a vast array of societal influences, from older children and adults in the environment, to the ubiquitous and often overwhelming electronic world of the Internet, today's children face challenges that those who grew up in pre-computer decades did not. The prolific availability of violent and possibly destructive influences are everywhere, and despite our best efforts, it is not only impossible, but inadvisable, to isolate children from anything and everything that may harm them. Fortunately, there are scientific techniques one can use to not only manage the behavior of children, but to teach them ways of relating to the world that involve personal responsibility, self-control, and acceptance of consequences for actions. The name of this science is behaviorism.

What is behaviorism?

In order to define behaviorism, we must first define the term behavior. Basically, behavior is defined as any organism's response to a stimulus or stimuli in its environment. This definition encompasses everything from the reflexive feeding motions of deep-sea creatures as microscopic plankton float by, (innate behavior,also called unlearned behavior), to the driver of a car slamming on his brakes because the light suddenly turned red (learned behavior). Every living thing, when acted upon by any stimulus, will exhibit behavior.
