Ever wondered how to take the next step from training to behaviour or you simply want to hone your behavioural skills further?  
Why not let Richard guide you through a logical and comprehensive approach to solving behaviour problems using scientific
protocols and an element of sleuthing.  Richard will show you not only the various types of behavioural problems presented
to behaviourists everyday, but what can be observed to help you produce a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
Richard will also guide you to produce the “Killer Question”, the one question you can ask that will focus your diagnosis
of behaviours that may look similar, but if diagnosed incorrectly may result in ineffective treatment.
The course has a combination of theory and practical elements and is designed to reproduce realistic scenarios
encouraging group participation.
