Episode 20 Preview

Next week, we're talking about the somewhat misunderstood treatment: non-contingent reinforcement.  And before we even get into the topic, Jackie gets belligerent.  So you know it'll be a good episode.

Then, in errata, we review updates to the professional and ethical compliance code for behavior analysts in relation to reporting public health- and safety-related fines or tickets to the BACB.  Let's hope none of our hypothetical scenarios every come to pass!
