Effects of Fixed Versus Random Condition Sequencing during Multielement Functional Analyses (2013)
It has been suggested that a fixed condition sequence might facilitate differential responding during multielement functional analyses (FAs) by capitalizing on or limiting sequence effects (Iwata, Pace, et al., 1994); however, the effects of condition sequence have not been examined empirically. Authors conducted fixed- and random-sequence FAs for 7 individuals with developmental disabilities to determine the relative effects that sequence may have on assessment outcomes.
Relationships Between Stressors and Parenting Attitudes in a Child Welfare Parenting Program (2013)
This study sought to explore the family stressors in parents involved in the child welfare system who have been referred to an intensive therapeutic parenting program, and the relationship of those stressors to change in parenting attitudes.
Promoting Cross-Sector Partnerships in Child Welfare: Qualitative Results from a Five-State Strategic Planning Process (2013)
Implications for conducting strategic planning in jurisdictions seeking to improve public/private partnerships are discussed.
Adaptations to a Functional Behavior Assessment with a Spanish-Speaking Preschooler: A Data-Based Case Study (2013)
Dual Language Learners (DLLs) are a growing population in the U.S. school system and increasing numbers of DLLs are referred for the assessment and treatment of problem behaviors. This article documents adaptations and considerations for a culturally and linguistically responsive, as well as effective assessment and intervention.
Teaching sexual abuse prevention skills to children (2013)
Adolescent and child sexuality is studied by developmental psychologists from a research perspective and is of interest to forensic psychologists dealing with abuse and custody issues as well as rape cases. In many cases, it is of interest whether the child in question was sexually active to understand the extent to which an underage minor might have voluntarily participated in sexual activity as opposed to having been coerced. Previously, researchers interested in the applications of their research needed to look to separate books, and forensic specialists needed to look to development books to find the information they may have needed. This handbook provides both audiences with the related information they need.
Provider Perspectives on Involving Families in Children’s Residential Psychiatric Care (2013)
Over time, residential mental health treatment programs for youth with serious emotional and behavioral disorders have shifted to a more family-focused paradigm that stresses the importance of family involvement during children's psychiatric care. Findings are presented from an in-depth qualitative examination of the factors that facilitate and hinder family involvement as well as expectations for family involvement from the perspective of providers at five residential youth treatment facilities in Florida.
Evaluation of Behavioral Skills Training for Teaching Functional Assessment and Treatment Selection Skills to Parents (2013)
Scant research has addressed the issue of teaching parents to conduct a functional assessment and design a treatment for problem behavior. The present study utilized behavioral skills training to teach parents how to conduct ABC recording, write a summary statement based on the data collected, and make appropriate treatment choices.
Racial/Ethnic Differences in Predictors of Self-Rated Health: Findings from the Survey of Older Floridians (2013)
This study examined how self-rated health was influenced by sociodemographic characteristics, physical health indicators, and sociocultural resources among four racial/ethnic groups of older adults.
Evaluating curricular influence on preparation for practice, career outcomes, and job satisfaction (2013)
Adaptations to a Functional Behavior Assessment with a Spanish-Speaking Preschooler: A Data-Based Case Study (2013)
Dual Language Learners (DLLs) are a growing population in the U.S. school system and increasing numbers of DLLs are referred for the assessment and treatment of problem behaviors. However, limited research has been conducted regarding the nature of cultural and linguistic influences on functional behavior assessment (FBA) and intervention. We conducted an FBA and intervention with a 4-year-old Spanish-speaking male preschooler in a Head Start setting referred for aggression and social deficits. We documented adaptations and considerations for a culturally and linguistically responsive, as well as effective assessment and intervention. Results indicated that these adaptations appeared beneficial and problem behaviors reduced during session and across the day. Recommendations for practice and future research are provided.
