Dr. E. Scott Geller presents: “Actively Caring for People”
Wednesday, February 13, 2019
6:00 – 8:00 pm (Eastern)
This event is FREE for the general public.*
Seven evidence-based guidelines for improving the quality and increasing the frequency of actively-caring-for-people (AC4P) behavior will be described and illustrated as relevant for benefiting human welfare and well-being throughout a culture. If practiced extensively, these life lessons would most assuredly improve overall quality of life by supporting diversity and interdependency, fostering civility and win/win collaboration, and increasing the occurrence of prosocial behavior.
The first four life lessons reflect the applied behavioral science principles of positive reinforcement, observational learning, and behavior-based feedforward and feedback. The subsequent three life lessons are derived from humanism, and not typically considered by applied behavior analysts. Techniques for operationalizing these humanistic guidelines will be explained to demonstrate the social validity of integrating select principles from humanism with behaviorism. The result: humanistic behaviorism—the application of select humanistic fundamentals to make behaviorism more acceptable, effective, and sustainable on a large scale. Our mission: to cultivate and sustain an AC4P culture.
By the end of this presentation the participants will be able to:
- Explain the critical connection between seven life lessons from psychological science and bringing the best out of yourself and others.
- Define the advantages of a success-seeking over a failure-avoiding mindset.
- Distinguish between feedforward and feedback as behavior-improvement techniques.
- List and demonstrate five levels of interpersonal listening, and explain their relevance to achieving and sustaining an AC4P culture.
- Increase the perception of empowerment and self-motivation within oneself and others.
- Define self-transcendence and its connection to actively caring for people and the Actively Caring for People (AC4P) Movement—www.activelycaringpeople.org.
- Derive some ways to increase occurrences of AC4P behavior.
