(Update) Real World Speaker Series with the Psychology Club, 12:15 PM – 2:15 PM, Glenwood Lounge – 2nd Floor – Student Center. The speaker is from the King’s County Hospital Behavioral Health Center. Liliane de Aguiar – Rocha is Director of the Behavioral Support Team at King’s County, and the program she’s in charge of is essentially the first of its kind in the country and quite possibly the world. It uses the potential for use of behavior analysis techniques in a psychiatric setting. Despite the team’s main supportive role being geared toward staff-patient interaction. B.F. Skinner’s conceptualization of operant conditioning was groundbreaking to say the least, but its application to the clinic has been neglected in recent decades. The BST takes the guesswork away from psychiatric staff who have to deal with extremely maladaptive (and sometimes downright disturbing) behaviors that some patients can pose every day. It may be a symbol of innovation how beneficial BST intervention could in the psychiatric realm. The Soc Club will be meeting in the James Hall Computer lounge (3611J) at 4:30 PM to attend the event below together and will be leaving 4:45-5 PM. They say is a great opportunity to represent Brooklyn College and become more active in the CUNY community.
