We wind down “It’s Gonna Be MAY” with a final topic that none of us have actually conducted research in but we think the field needs to know more about. Remember how we talked about behavioral momentum last week? Remember how “your BCBA friend” referred to the high-p/low-p sequence as an example of behavioral momentum. Well, THEY’RE USING THAT TERM WRONG!!! Find out why and how to avoid ever making that mistake again. Think of this episode as a public service announcement.
