My name is Courtney Goodman and I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). I received my Bachelors degree in Developmental Psychology from The College of New Jersey and I earned my Masters Degree in Applied Psychology focusing in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) from Rider University. Behavior Analysis is the scientific study of principles of learning and behavior. Applied Behavior Analysis is a systematic approach used to examine behavior and reliably related environmental variables in order to use behavioral techniques to bring about a desired change in behavior.
My initial experience in the field of behavioral psychology focused on individuals with autism who exhibited severe problem behaviors. While I loved working with this population I found that I also had a strong passion for working with animals and I decided to use my education not only to help humans but to help animals as well.
I use reinforcement based techniques to teach new behaviors as well as to decrease problem behaviors. This is achieved by teaching positive replacement behaviors for the problem behaviors. These changes in behavior are brought about using shaping techniques and differential reinforcement (positive reinforcement of appropriate behaviors combined with withholding of reinforcement for inappropriate behaviors).
I use fear-free, reinforcement based training and follow LIMA guidelines for the least-intrusive, minimally aversive methods of achieving behavior change. Learn more about LIMA here: https://apdt.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/position-statement-lima.pdf
