July 2019 Preview

Summer may be heating up, but ABA Inside Track is staying cool with a remote guest from Iceland and our third annual book club (which we’ll pretend was recorded on a beach). This month, we discuss social validity, virtual reality training with special guests Dr. Berglind Sveinbjornsdottir and Dr. Casey Clay, and how coercive practices may be synonymous with nuclear war. All that and listener emails and our typical preview episode nonsense.

(REBROADCAST) Episode 25 - Virtual Reality

From the archives:

If one were to enter the virtual world, could we really expect that person to come out the other side with great fire safety skills and a fearlessness about spiders?  Well, this week we discuss two articles that say, "Yes."  Featuring our very first call-in co-host, anecdotes galore about Rob's favorite video games, and more terrifying spider scenarios than you could shake a stick it.  Strap on those VR headsets and step into the next level of research-based entertainment.  And we never even mention that "Virtual Reality" song, because we refuse to make the easy references.  And we ran out of money to license it.

June 2019 Preview

Starting summer off right with journal articles! This month we get back into a discussion of ethical dilemmas with the use of telehealth and telemedicine before inviting Dr. Stacie Bancroft to share some advance chaining variations. Finally, while we all enjoy some time off, a look back into the archives with our classic episode on research related to virtual reality. Bonus: Rob’s award-winning writings are only marginally embarrassing to hear about.
