In this workshop, Dr. Fabiano discusses the history and evidence-base for time out from positive reinforcement. First, Dr. Fabiano describes attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and the reasons why time-out may be effective to manage some of the behaviors associated with this disorder. Next, he describes the overarching principles of time-out and how time-out can sometimes be considered controversial. Lastly, he discusses various considerations for establishing a time-out procedure and how to trouble-shoot the procedure. Videos and case-examples are presented throughout the workshop. Runtime: 150 minutes.
