Connections Behavior Planning and Intervention is excited to welcome Dr. Camille Kolu, BCBA-D, for a brief webinar series for Behavior Analysts! This event will focus on the topic of Trauma-Informed Behavior Analysis. This content will be presented in two sessions, with input from attendees of the first session to inform content for the second. For CEU’s, attendees will need to attend both sessions (recording will be shared after the live event for registered attendees).
Despite the cultural movement to extend the inclusive principles of trauma informed services to behavior analysis, many behavior analysts lack the training or support to apply this idea. In some cases, we lack knowledge of appropriate assessments, supervised experience with sensitive populations, and skills including rigorous risk documentation and collaboration with trauma-informed teams. These statements may be especially true, and their consequences serious, where trauma related behavior intersects with other challenges related to our vulnerable populations. This introduction to TIBA shares case studies where behavior analysis was applied in a trauma-informed way in a productive team context to support individuals from settings across education, autism clinics, foster families, day programs, and hospitals. Participants will learn from a supervisor perspective as we walk through examples and discuss several helpful tools.
About the Presenter
Dr. Camille Kolu is a behavioral scientist and BCBA-D in Denver, Colorado. She is the owner of Cusp Emergence, a private practice in which she joins families and agencies to engineer behavioral cusps for individuals and their loved ones. After training, supervision and work at the University of North Texas, Dr. Kolu earned a Ph.D. in Biopsychology and Behavioral Neuroscience at Rutgers University, where she developed neurobiological animal models of autism and examined olfactory and social contextual conditioning. Dr. Kolu practices behavior analysis across the lifespan with individuals and families affected by autism, foster care or adoption, mental illness, and/or developmental and intellectual disabilities. She partners with health and human service agencies, mental hospitals, schools, community centered boards, and the University of Colorado Denver, where she enjoys designing and teaching courses in behavior analysis and ethics. Dr. Kolu has published in peer-reviewed journals, and serves on the advisory board of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies. She is active in local behavior analytic groups. Dr. Kolu explores research interests in verbal communities of reinforcement and stimulus schedules in the everyday interactions of families affected by disruption or trauma, while using her private practice to provide training, education, and behavior analytic mentorship and supervision.
Participants at this event will:
- Tact ways that trauma related terms can be operationalized in a way conceptually consistent with behavior analysis
- State applications of behavior analysis to treating behavior after or during exposure to trauma
- Give examples of using tools to enhance applied behavior analytic practice with people affected by trauma

- 3.0 Learning BACB CEU’s (included with purchase)
- $60 to attend (must attend or view both sessions)
- Includes access to the recording and presentation materials, and CEU’s.
