Description

Abstract

The ability to make requests, conceptually referred to as the mand relation, is a type of verbal operant whose response form is under control of a motivating operation (MO). It is the first verbal operant to be acquired, directly benefits the speaker, leads to the development of other behaviors, and may serve to replace problem behavior. Even though the topography of the mand is under the functional control of an MO, its occurrence is influenced by a multitude of variables functioning as discriminative stimuli (SDs). Thus, the generalization of mands can occur across both MOs and SDs. Additionally, the same MO may evoke new mand topographies—a form of response generalization. During this talk, I will describe these two types of mand generalizations as a way to influence future research and clinical practice, as well as how to promote them.

An Intro to RFT

Fantastic presentation and content. Liked the frequent learning checks to be sure we could understand what was being taught. Nice format too. Very easy to use. I loved this course and look forward to more!

Great learning experience! much better than a textbook =.)

Great and introductory course on RFT

Very comprehensive in an easy to understand language. Great examples and visuals to explain concepts.
I think this course should be more than 6 CEUs though.
Highly recommend.

Great info and a touch of humor

I had to purchase the module for graduate school. I found the information and presentation engaging and informative. I would gladly purchase another module from foxylearning.

Amazing

I really learned a very complex topic in a simple way where they broke down the topics and really made sure your understanding of them was clear before moving onto the next.
