Episode 7 - Trial-Based Functional Analysis

We're going off the rails on the way to Dissemination Station this week in a discussion of trial-based functional analysis procedures and their place in the assessment of problem behavior.  Can this procedure provide sweet middle ground between the robust flavor of a full FA and the doughy, blandness of an FBA? All that and a discussion of which Hogwarts house Rob and Diana would be sorted into and what visuals Jackie uses to understand bar graphs.
