long-term quality of life. This six-hour training provides a brief overview of the most common behavioral challenges associated with ABI as well as evidence-supported practices for assessment and treatment.

Session I (7/24/24, 1-4 p.m.) reviews brain structures associated with behavioral outcomes including socially disinhibited, withdrawn, and agitated presentations. The components of a therapeutic environment and the use of Positive Behavior Supports for reducing challenging behaviors are reviewed.
Session II (8/28/24 1-4 p.m.) cognitive disorders contributing to challenges in behavioral regulation are presented. Assessing behavior and implementing evidenced-supported practices for reducing challenging behaviors as well as techniques for teaching socially functional behaviors are reviewed.

Upon completion of this training, program participants will be able to:
1. Identify areas of the brain associated with challenging behavioral presentations
2. Describe components of a therapeutic environment and Positive Behavior Supports to reduce challenging behavior
3. Identify cognitive disorders contributing to behavioral challenges
4. Explain evidence-supported strategies for preventing and reducing the occurrence of challenging behaviors
