    Matrix Training & Applied Behavior Analysis

    (whooshing noise) – Hi, my name is Brianna Snyder and I’m a BCBA with Brett Dinovi & Associates. In this video today we’re going to talk about matrix training. When you think of a matrix, what is your first thought? Do you think Keanu Reeves in the Matrix or do you think matrix training? If you’re watching this, fortunately for you, as long as you’re here for the AVA knowledge, we’re talking about matrix training. This video will cover fifth edition task list topics G-11 and G-21. Matrix training is a generative teaching approach in which words are arranged in a matrix so that some phrases are taught and others…

    Classics in the Classroom: Timeline 4 – Civil War, Dictatorships and More Civil War

    In this video we’re going to explore the period of the Late Republic defined by civil war. Starting in 49BC when Caesar crossed the Rubicon. We saw another video entitled the Big Three, how events led to civil war in 49. The civil war between Caesar and Pompey ranged between 49 and 48 across most of the Mediterranean. Also in 49BC we see Caesar becoming Dictator for the first time, albeit only for ten days. But this nevertheless was the start of the period when Caesar is Dictator for five times, culminating in 44BC when he is Dictator Perpetuo. Dictator without interruption. As well as holding successive dictatorships over the…

    Classics in the Classroom: Bodies of the Constitution

    In this video, we’re going to look at the bodies of the res publica. As with many other Roman institutions, these bodies were institutions in flux and again, they didn’t look the same at any two moments in time. That said, one constant is that membership of all of these bodies and participation in them was restricted to adult male citizens. Today, we’re going to be looking at four bodies of the res publica. These are: the senate, the comitia centuriata, the concilium plebis (or the comitia plebis tributa), and the comitia tribute (or the comitia populi tributa). Let’s begin with the Roman senate. The most important thing to remember…

    Parent and Caregiver Training For Behavior Analysts

    (stimulating music) – Hi, my name is May Beaubrun and I’m a Board Certified Behavior Analyst with Brett DiNovi and Associates. In this video, I’ll be talking about parent or caregiver training. Parent or caregiver training is a term used to describe the process of teaching a parent or a caregiver to demonstrate competent and effective behavior analytic treatments. Parent training may include observation, team training, two person prompting, implementation of programs, and data collection. In an ideal parent training situation there’ll be extensive and high-quality parent participation, cooperation with all recommended treatment procedures during therapy sessions, complete dedicated and support of only evidence-based treatments for adhering, for addressing symptoms…

    MSc Early Intervention in Psychosis

    Early Intervention is really a shift to thinking about how can we prevent psychosis or how can we stop people from getting really, really ill. So it’s not just giving them therapy and medication but it’s also focused on helping them lead meaningful lives and have good relationships with their family, and be able to study in school or have a job that’s meaningful to them. It’s working holistically, it’s working as a team with other professionals it’s bringing hope to people who might otherwise have severe difficulties in their life caused by mental illness. The thing I enjoyed most about the course was the quality of teaching and the…

    The Articles of Confederation – Finding Finances – Extra History – #3

    For five years, the Confederation Congress had struggled to fund a national army to fight the American Revolutionary War, but the war kept going and Congress had become dead broke ♫Intro Music ♫ Under the Articles of Confederation, Congress had no real leadership. they elected one of their own members to be President of Congress, but once elected he could only supervise meetings. He couldn’t vote or even suggest new laws. Many saw it as a demotion and a few who did get elected wound up trying to resign only to find out that they were stuck there because nobody wanted to replace them . But now that the Articles…

    Haitian Revolutions: Crash Course World History #30

    Hi, I’m John Green. This is Crash Course World History. And apparently it’s Revolutions Month here at Crash Course, because today we are going to discuss the often-neglected Haitian Revolutions. The Haitian Revolutions are totally fascinating and they involve two of my very favorite things: 1. Ending slavery, and 2. Napoleon getting his feelings hurt. I can’t help myself, Napoleon. I like to see you suffer. [theme music] So, the French colony in Saint-Domingue began in the 17th century as a pirate outpost. And its original French inhabitants made their living selling leather and a kind of smoked beef called boucan. All that beef actually came from cattle left behind…

    The Black Legend, Native Americans, and Spaniards: Crash Course US History #1

    Hi I’m John Green, and this is Crash Course U.S. History! No, Stan. That’s not gonna work, actually. I mean, we’re talking about the 16th century today, when this was neither united nor states. By the way, this globe reflects the fact that I believe that Alaskan statehood is illegitimate! In fact, we’re going to call this whole show “U.S. History” but inevitably it is going to involve other parts of the world and also, not to brag, a small part of the moon. Sorry, we can be a little bit self-aggrandizing sometimes, here in America. So to begin U.S. history, we’re not going to talk about the United states…

    Age of Jackson: Crash Course US History #14

    Hi I’m John Green. This is Crash Course U.S. history and today, after last week’s bummer on slavery, we turn to a happier topic: the rise of democratization in the U.S. This was also known as the Age of Jackson, no Stan, not that Jackson. No, no, Stan, come’on seriously. No not, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. YES. That Jackson. Andrew Jackson. intro …Sorry, I just had to check my collar. Right, so you’ll recall that the initial democracy of the United States wasn’t terribly democratic—almost all voters were white male land owners. Mr. Green, Mr. Green. That’s just radically unfair. Exactly, Me from…
