We're a little nervous to say it, but next week, we're going to talk about anxiety from a behavior analytic standpoint and try to make sense of whether or not its treatment is a realm appropriate for BCBAs to tackle. Spoiler: of course it is! Meanwhile, listen to Rob drone on about how great he is at running. And let us know if you like the new camera set up!
