Episode 84 - EIBI w/ Dr. Diana Parry-Cruwys

We kick off “It’s Gonna be May” with a discussion of Diana’s work in early intensive behavior intervention (EIBI) including a discussion of what is and what isn’t considered EIBI and how providing effective services passes the educational savings on to you. All that and Diana’s favorite research article ever!

May 2019 Preview

It’s gonna be MAAAAY! Technically, it’s May right now. And, in honor of May, all our episodes will be about ME! Well, about Diana and Jackie, to be exact. This month, we’ll be discussing research articles actually written by our dynamic doctor duo . There’s even an article that they wrote together. Plus, we finally dish out the answer to the question you’ve all been asking: What’s the difference between behavioral momentum and the high-p/low-p sequence? I mean, you might not be asking it overtly, but it’s at least a commonly occurring private event.

NOTE: Sorry about our busted audio this month. It was either use the poor quality back-up or a loud buzzing sound every 5 seconds. We’ll be back to normal next week.

Bonus Episode 14 - The Year in ABA (2018) w/ Matt Cicoria

As 2018 draws to a close, we gather round together with our pal Matt Cicoria from the Behavioral Observations podcast to discuss what’s been going down with applied behavior analysis in the past 365 days. We talk losses, changes, and where we think 2019 will take us as a field. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Episode 40 - (SUPERVISION) Supervisor's Book Club, pt 3

It's our final episode in Supervision September and we saved the best for last.  How to give your supervisees feedback! How to make work fun! Plus horror stories of the times we all utterly failed at supervising.  And, of course, Diana gives a bunch of "Lost" spoilers.  Because talking about great serialized television is the best way to let your staff know that you're a cool supervisor.

Episode 17 - Ethics in Data Collection

If you think you're a pro at tracking behavior, this week's episode may be a cue to reflect on just how easy it is to collect bad data. We're joined by special guest Dr. Amanda Karsten to discuss the ethics of taking good data as behavior analysts.  Dr. Karsten reviews some great tips on how to go from data squirrel to data hero as well as some practical suggestions to get you using data ethically today! Plus, Diana shares a quiz to find out what kind of data you are and Jackie plugs her new ABA Christmas album.  Rob sits in shock at the stark realization that he only uses data for evil.  And for folks applying for continuing education credits, this episode counts towards 1 Ethics CE.

Episode 17 Preview

Behavior analysts collect so much data, yet we don't always think about why.  Are there ethical standards which we should take into account with our data collection procedures? Dr. Amanda Karsten sure thinks so and she'll be joining us on next week's episode to provide some great tips on how to take ethical data.

And in Errata we continue the debate between whether BCBAs should be more warm and fuzzy or more clinical-sounding.  Plus, Mr. Rogers versus Mr. Dress Up.
