Relational Frame Theory is a behavioral, natural science approach to understanding the psychology of human language. The body of empirical work underlying RFT is as robust as it is dense. The language of ‘arbitrarily applicable derived relational responding’, ‘combinatorial entailment’ and ‘transformation of stimulus function’ can feel dauntingly unfamiliar, or even intractable, to many educators and behavioral practitioners. Practical application of RFT, however, need not be so unwieldy. This intermediate workshop will demonstrate the tremendous benefits attainable when RFT is brought to bear on the shaping of generalized verbal operant classes. Additionally, we will share how a common-language understanding of this theoretical framework can give behaviorists and educators access to new instructional-design strategies to improve students’ ability to fluently relate to the world around them.
1. Participants will be able to speak about RFT in a common-sense, common-language way. Specifically, participants will be able to name at least 3 relational operants.
2. Participants will be able to generate new ideas about how to apply RFT in teaching methods and instructional design. Specifically, they will be able to design programs to teach relational operants directly and write a script for concept instruction that includes prompts of mutual and combinatorial derived relations.
