Episode 94 - Gender Diversity in Behavior Analysis w/ Erin Donovan + Kristen Lancaster

As a bunch of cisgender podcasters, we figured we could use some help in discussing issues related to gender diversity in behavior analysis. That’s why we invited our friends, Erin Donovan and Kristen Lancaster, from Confessions of a Behavior Analyst to share their knowledge and experience on how behavior analysts can improve their competence working with nonbinary or transgender colleagues and clients.

Episode 53 - Empathy

Are you ok? Would a podcast all about teaching empathy skills make you feel better? What if I told you that this week's discussed articles have fun puppet videos? Strange face prompting? How about really promising results in mastery of identifying and showing empathy among participants with an autism diagnosis? Yeah, yeah, it'll be fine.  ABA Inside Track is here for you with a great big podcast-y hug.

Episode 53 Preview

Next week's episode will be all about teaching empathy.  And who better to help us kick off this preview episode than some very special guests: puppets! After that, we share an excerpt from our upcoming interview with Whitney Hammel of Autism Compassion Africa to highlight the work of her and her staff in bringing treatment of individuals with autism to Ghana.  We're so motivated to help out that we even announce a fundraiser in honor of Autism Awareness Month where all CE processing fees will be donated to ACA.  So, listen to as many episodes as you can: every CE you purchase increases the funds heading to treatment of autism in West Africa.
