Episode 63 - (SUPERVISION) Supervision Series II, pt 1 - The Future of Supervision w/ Dr. Jamie Hughes-Lika

Supervision September 2 starts off this week with a look at the future of supervision.  Namely, we discuss updates to supervision for BCBA trainees as laid out this past year by the BACB.  Then, after the dry stuff, Rob talks with Dr. Jamie Hughes-Lika of Summit Autism Services about some technology tools that may make your supervision a little easier.  Not discussed: Magical supervision robots who log your training hours minute-by-minute.  Though wouldn't that be cool?

Episode 62 - Help, I Need Somebody

This week, we're discussing asking for help and ways to improve this important life skill.  We discuss basic requests for help, how to prevent overgeneralization of the response, and high- and low-tech solutions for asking for help when lost.  Plus, Rob goes out of his way to make the absolute worst jokes possible in a feeble attempt to lighten the mood.

No one makes it through this crazy world alone.  Whether a full-grown adult or a child with disabilities, everyone needs to be able to ask for help once in a while.  But what happens when you keep asking for help all the time? Or your need help but don't know who to ask or where you are? Next week we'll be reviewing articles that have the answers to the these questions.  But first, a whole bunch of upcoming episode and appearance reminders!

Episode 52 - (ETHICS) You Need an Ethics Coordinator!

We're back with another full-length episode on the subject of ethics in the workplace.  This week, we're all convinced that you probably need an ethics guru to steer your ship with best practices.  And it'd be great if they understood confidentiality laws too, otherwise, your files might end up at the mercy of a data hamburglar! While you start hiring this magical individual, we'll do our best to walk you through HIPAA, FERPA, and all its friends including Diana's handy-dandy legal quiz.  Some fun facts to whet your appetite: a pod of hippos is not a HIPPA and Rob's passwords all start with names of Star Wars characters.

Because one episode wasn't enough, we've got TWO big ethics episodes coming up throughout the rest of March.  And not just any ethics! We're going to dive deep into the pitfalls inherent in social media and technology.  How the heck can I post inappropriate pictures online and stay on the right side of my ethical obligations (answer: you can't!) and is it possible to teach my staff and co-workers to be an upstanding citizen of ethics (answer: it is!).  In the meantime enjoy some Errata about a poorly behaved cat and a Rob ProTip about snagging your dream jobs.  The power is yours!

Episode 48 - Research Grab Bag IV: Bride of Grab Bag

Then, from beyond the realms of known behavior analysis comes the research grab bag.  This lumbering beast has returned yet again to bring forth research from all corners of the globe.  Gaze upon the grab bag's works, ye mighty, and despair that you have yet to learn of disguised mands, portion control, and text-message cueing.  But you will, good listener...you will!
