Unit 4 PowerPoint® Presentation
In this assignment, you will play the role of a behavior-consulting intern. You are working as a behavior consulting intern for Acme, Inc. Your company is taking on a new client, Shoreside Community-Based Residential Facility. You will prepare a presentation consisting of a narrated Power Point addressing the following scenario.
Scenario: Shoreside Community-Based Residential Facility
Shoreside would like your company to provide consultation in their unit for adults with traumatic brain injury. Shoreside management and staff have expressed a concern over increasing rates of disruptive behavior during community outings and have had little success with their current interventions. They believe they may need assistance with staff training and behavior management techniques.
The company uses some Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) with their clients but has never used ABA at an organizational level. The Director recently learned about Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) and wants to know more about how basic concepts of ABA could be used at Shoreside. The Director of Shoreside believes this would be an effective way to address the problems within the organization.
You have been tasked with conducting a preliminary assessment using the first few steps of the problem-solving model: Pinpointing and Measurement, as well as providing an overview of what the process will look like at Shoreside. Your manager has asked you to make a presentation to management and staff to provide more information about OBM and how fundamental principles of behavior can be used in the organization. Additionally, Shoreside is skeptical that the same principles they use with their clients could be applied to staff within the organization.
Using what you have learned about OBM and fundamental principles of behavior, you must create a narrated PowerPoint presentation (minimum of 12 slides) consisting of the following:
Provide an overview of Organizational Behavior Management (OBM):
Define and describe OBM.
Identify and describe at least one specific application of OBM that is applicable to the above organization.
Provide an overview of the problem-solving process:
Describe the steps of a behavior analytic problem-solving model for organizations.
Identify the role that individuals within organizations hold in relation to the successful planning and implementation of interventions.
Describe how problems are prioritized and addressed.
Define and describe fundamental principles of behavior and provide examples of how this is applied on an organizational level. Use non-technical language, when possible, so that all those attending the meeting understand your discussion:
Reinforcement and punishment
Define positive and negative reinforcement and punishment.
Provide general examples illustrating the principles.
Utilize the ABC Model and conduct a PIC/NIC analysis for one behavior using the following information from an observation at shoreside:
