Episode 19: Time Out: New School vs. Old School

Rethink your ideas about time out. Instead of viewing this intervention as harsh and aversive instead reframe time out as “time away from reinforcement.” When used in the correct situations, this strategy can be extremely effective to reduce dangerous and disruptive behaviors. In this episode learn how and why to conduct through baseline data so you are only using this strategy in the appropriate situations. Identify the reasons why a “time away from reinforcement” works and how this plays out naturally in the real world. Also, learn tips for utilizing visuals, adding a criteria for exiting a time out, removing the power struggle, and how to ensure that reinforcing aspects are actually removed. It’s time for a new school perspective on this intervention.
