Episode 19 - Parent Training to Decrease Challenging Behavior

Everyone needs help sometimes whether it's a family dealing with challenging behavior or podcast hosts avoiding nonsensical tangents.  This week's episode spends most of it's running time with the former, reviewing research on how to help behavior analysts to help parents in the home.  From tantrums in quadruplets to overcoming mealtime woes, we've got something for even the smartest parents and practitioners to learn.  In regards to the latter--with Rob getting in character with his Fran Drescher nanny impression, Jackie bringing up fishing and Beyonce, and Diana comparing research to delicious gravy--we may have been less successful.

Episode 19 Preview

We're back with another preview episode to prepare for a full-length discussion on helping parents learn to respond to challenging behavior.  But first, we get a bit ABA OFF-track as Rob recounts the time he almost met Neil Gaiman, Diana shares some recent Facebook links with the crowd, and Jackie recounts our BABAT rock star moment.  And speaking of which, if you haven't listened to our BABAT special, please do so, if not for our sunny voices than for all of the cool movie music Rob edited in there.
