Psychology - ABA Speaker Series

4:00 pm - 5:30 pm - Sierra Hall 451 - Whitsett Room

Psychology - ABA Speaker Series

Please join the Psychology Department for the next talk in the Applied Behavior Analysis Speaker Series

Dr. Daniel B. Shabani, BCBA-D, President, California Association of Behavior Analysis presents

Verbal Behavior Analysis - The application of Skinner's functional analysis of verbal behavior (1957) has been a hallmark of early intervention for children diagnosed with autism. Numerous studies have identified a variety of useful teaching strategies, transfer of stimulus control procedures, and the independence of specific verbal operants. In putting these empirically validated findings into practice, a more thorough understanding of the variables that influence responding during language training are sometimes overlooked, particularly for children who fail to acquire conditional discrimination skills. An analysis of these variables and how they may impact verbal behavior is the focus of this presentation.

Daniel Shabani received his Ph.D. in Behavior Analysis from Western Michigan University following an undergraduate degree from the University of California, Los Angeles and a master's degree from the University of the Pacific. Currently, Dr. Shabani is the president of the California Association of Behavior Analysis and runs a private practice in Southern California. He has authored a number of publications on assessment and treatment of behavior problems, as well as reviews of trends within the field of behavior analysis. Dr. Shabani's current research interests include the assessment and treatment of severe behavior problems, verbal behavior, and instructional design

The Pin


This new Yiddish language film is an unusual love story. An elderly religious Jewish man working in a morgue as a shomer (a person who keeps the body company until it is ready for burial) is plunged into remembering his past when the body of his long-lost first love arrives. In flashback memories, he recalls their meeting in a deserted Lithuanian barn during the Nazi invasion when both were hiding from the killing squads. Their fear and desperation turn into love and a pledge of eternal commitment -- until an unexpected intrusion changes everything. The intensity and quiet beauty of this film provoke reflection on love, forgiveness, and coming to terms with the past. 83 minutes, in Yiddish with English subtitles. Followed by Q & A with CSUN Jewish Studies faculty.

Co-Sponsored by Adat Ari El, Temple Ramat Zion, and CSUN Hillel

"Cliff Notes for Working with Insurance Companies and Lessons Learned in the Field"

Featuring Dr. David Adams, LPCC, BCBA-D

Working with managed health care companies can be time consuming and frustrating. It is common for many behavioral healthcare professionals to spend hours and hours on the phone trying to figure out how to become in network, check benefits for a client, obtain authorizations, and bill insurance companies. Unfortunately, most training programs in behavioral analysis do not equip students for these challenges.
