Relational Frame Theory provides a post-Skinnnerian account of human language and cognition. Predominantly, research and applied work have focused on what are known as frames of coordination, or better known as stimulus equivalence, to explain the derivation of relations among and between stimuli. To date, however, few efforts have been made to extrapolate these foundational relations to conceptualizations of more complex human behavior (e.g., Rule-Governed Behavior related to prosocial behavior). Therefore, the purpose of the current event is to 1)investigate the ways in which more complex relations among and between environmental stimuli (both public and private) come to occasion deviant and/or aberrant behavior in school and workplace settings and, 2) propose an RFT conceptualization as to the way(s) in which we may promote and facilitate prosocial behavior in said settings.
-Attendees will explore the ways in which aberrant behavior may come to be within school and workplace contexts via rule-governed behavior (RGB) and derived relational responding.
-Attendees will be introduced to a Relational Frame Theory conceptualization of compassion and how it may be infused into school and workplace contexts via motivative augmentals (i.e., RGB) derived relational responding.
