About this Webinar

Strategies for Maximizing One’s Productivity and Work Enjoyment

in Human Services


This webinar will discuss how human service practitioners can achieve and maintain self-motivation to be professionally productive and experience enjoyment on the job during the best and worst of times. Self-motivation will be presented in terms of practitioners actively using strategies developed through research and application in behavior analysis and therapy to promote their work productivity and enjoyment. Examples of self-motivation strategies to be discussed include goal setting, self-recording, self-reinforcement, and specific ways to promote enjoyment during unpleasant work situations (e.g., when working with unrealistic caseloads or working for a problematic supervisor). 

Learning Objectives

  1. Define self-motivation in a manner readily applicable for working practitioners. 
  2. Describe a basic self-motivation strategy for wide-scale application. 
  3. Name two advantages of short-term goals relative to long-term goals for maintaining self-motivation on a day-to-day and week-to-week basis.
