Episode 100 - The History of ABA w/ Dr. Gina Green

It’s finally here! Our 100th episode! And what better way to celebrate than to take the time to remember the events that came before us, namely, the origins of applied behavior analysis. And if you thought we were just going to say “Skinner” a bunch of times, how wrong you are. Special guest, Dr. Gina Green from APBA, leads our trip down memory lane with an amazing account of how the field has changed over the years before we all break out our crystal balls and look to what the future holds.

Thanks to everyone who has listened and supported us low these many episodes!
