Research Press Publishers is excited to announce release of Behavior Intervention Without Tears: Keeping FBAs and BIPs Simple, by Dr. Terri Chiara Johnston.
This book tackles basic issues involved in constructing sound functional behavioral assessments (FBAs) and behavior intervention plans (BIPs). Written in the author’s trademark conversational style, contents pinpoint ways to teach new skills and alternative behaviors to address behavioral challenges.
As Johnston states, “The book is brief, to the point, and intended to reframe an educator’s thinking about the purposes and function of behavior. The dirty little secret here is this: I want you to think about a kid’s challenging behavior in such a way that, eventually, you will automatically implement strategies that will result in an immediate decrease in problems and know what to do to keep it that way. This book is NOT about meaningless paperwork. This book is about answering the age-old question, ‘Why on earth does the kid do that?’ quickly and effectively.”
Behavior Intervention Without Tears: Keeping FBAs and BIPs Simple is a companion book to Johnston’s bestselling Data Without Tears: How to Write Measurable Educational Goals and Collect Meaningful Data, which has just been updated and expanded.
