Episode 28 - FCT

SPOILER WARNING! 

FCT is superior to many other treatments.  If you want to know which treatments, you'll have to go 5 rounds with Diabolical Dr. D in the ring, suffer through Rob's snooty New England anecdotes, and share your favorite foods to eat while reading journal articles with Jackie.  Only then will you have the joy of hearing a discussion about Carr and Durand and the epic Tale of FCR.  And you won't even need to use an FCR response (or should that be FC response?) to witness the heartwarming return of the lag schedule.  This podcast is like EZ tasks 100, folks!

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.
