This course is presented in two parts, with a 15-minute break in between. Attendees are encouraged to attend both parts.

At some point, we realize that one click and one treat per behavior will be cumbersome to keep up forever; it’s simply impossible for certain important behaviors or tasks. At that point, we must develop and maintain chains of behaviors.

Behavior chains can be smooth and efficient packages of pristine behavior if handled well, or they can be frustrating and time-consuming if handled poorly. They can also be our worst behavioral nightmares, reinforcing bad behaviors, if they are not planned carefully!

Part 1 will focus on:

  • Defining a behavior chain
  • Cues as reinforcers
  • Types of chains
  • Poisoned cues and their impact on chains
  • A closer look at back-chaining
