This month's topic: Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive (LIMA): How does “Least” and “Minimally” fit into behavior modification?

One of the guiding principles of the HASS Behavior Support Working Group is to work toward adhering to Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive principles. In this special 90 minute session, let's talk LIMA :)

During this 90-minute session you will learn about the Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive (LIMA) ethical principle and explore three case studies that illustrate the use of LIMA to address problem behaviors.
