by Merrill Winston, Ph.D., BCBA-D | Earn 2 BACB Learning CEUs!

The concept of "picking a fight" is not a new one, but it is most certainly a social concept. The reason it's called "picking a fight" and not "face smashing" is that picking a fight is all about provocation that will justify the fight in the eyes of the attacker and those in society. There will be an analysis of “fight picking” including why it occurs and what to do about it. This LIVE webinar will be held on August 26, 2022 at 12 PM - 2 PM ET.

The concept of "picking a fight" is not a new one, but it is most certainly a social concept. The reason it's called "picking a fight" and not "face smashing" is that picking a fight is all about provocation that will justify the fight in the eyes of the attacker and those in society. The problem occurs most typically in individuals with very good language, good self-control, and an understanding that their aggressive behavior is more justified if there were an argument. The talk will focus on differences between instrumental and affective aggression and how your strategies may have to fluidly change based on where their aggressive behavior lies on a continuum from more operant to more respondent. The presentation will also cover the topic of “attention” and why it may prove problematic. Participants will also learn about physical “signs of damage” in aggression but also emotional signs of damage in social interactions. Treatment options will be discussed in terms of addressing the MOs for seeking confrontations (and signs of damage), as well as options for what to do once confrontation seeking has already started.
