What are some example goals?
Increasing physical activity, coping with daily stressors, smoke cessation, and changing your food consumption routine based on your health needs. Your behavior consultant will teach you to take daily measurements of the behaviors to be changed and the strategies used to change them. These strategies will utilize resources available to you in your immediate environment, will match your preferences, and fit your life style. You will learn to identify the contextual variables that have an effect on the behaviors, and we will use that information to choose replacement goals that are functionally equivalent to those being changed.
Become independent in increasing the quality of your life. Learn to become your own agent of change with a Ballsbridge behavior consultant. Your plan will include strategies that are functionally related to the goals in your behavior plan. We will teach you self management skills so that you can independently apply the strategies written in your behavior plan every day. The strategies used will be based on empirically validated teaching methods derived from the principals of human behavior.
We will help you take validity and reliability measures of the program implementation to further assess the efficiency of it on an ongoing basis. We will work collaboratively to make necessary changes in your program to increase its efficiency.
You will learn to set your own goals, identify specific behaviors to change, convert them into measureable and observable units, find out environmental variables that have an effect on the behaviors to be changed and apply the techniques of applied behavior analysis to make lasting changes.
