Want to see an example of Dr. Riffel’s humor and ability to teach about behavior? Watch this short video

Learners will leave this presentation with:

  • Knowledge of the tenets of behavior
  • Knowledge of the braided system of building behavioral support
  • A beginning repository of behavioral techniques for over 30 common behavior triggers


  • Pre-K through 12th grade General and Special Education
  • Educators, Counselors, Psychologists, Administrators, Parents, Therapeutic Foster Parents, Behavior Specialists, Support Staff


  • A presentation time of 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. works best.
  • A link will be sent for the booklet required for this training. You will need to print a booklet for each participant
  • Dr. Riffel will link the PowerPoint presentation the day of the training for participants.
  • Classroom style setting for participants (they will be writing and participating in group discussions.)
  • If more than 50 participants, Dr. Riffel will need a lavaliere (lapel) microphone and the ability to link to a sound system for video clips that illustrate specific points. (Dr. Riffel cannot hold a microphone for an extended period of time or stand in one place as she demonstrates with actual materials and through audience interaction.)
  • An extra table up front is required for demonstration materials.


There are three themes

1: The tenets of behavior.  There are ten guiding principles. When we understand these principles we have a better grasp on behavior.

2. The braiding of behavior change. We need to understand the Three “T’s” and the Three “R’s” of behavior change. Trigger-Target-impacT and Revise the Environment, Replace the Behavior, and Reframe the Response.

3. The final theme is a synthesis of all that has been taught.  Participants will put together their own summary statement and build a behavioral intervention plan from the repository of interventions shared.
