    Storytelling

    Storytelling

    We all love books and sharing information through stories and anecdotes. But why does that even work? This week we review some excellent thought pieces on the subject of narrative and storytelling as valued behavior. We look at what makes cliffhangers so appealing, how stories make learning more fun, and whether you need to be practicing better anecdotes before work.
    This episode is available for 1.0 LEARNING CEU.

    (LISTENER CHOICE) Consultation in Behavior Analysis

    (LISTENER CHOICE) Consultation in Behavior Analysis

    For our Spring Listener Choice episode, we’re looking into what makes consultation for behavior analysts good. Because consultation is like a mountain where you and your client reach the summit together. But don’t forget the extra cans of air in case its very tall. And did you remember to pack enough provisions? Or your compass? Some icebreaker games? Perhaps this metaphor is getting away from us, and you should just listen to the episode discussion of relevant research into what makes good, rather than useless, consultation in behavior analysis.
    This episode is available for 1.0 LEARNING CEU.

    Concurrent Chains Arrangement

    Concurrent Chains Arrangement

    Somehow we’ve made it nearly 300 episodes without actually talking about concurrent chains arrangement specifically. I mean, we’ve talked about measuring assent, preferences for treatments, chaining, and concurrent schedules. Finally, all the great tastes that go great together in one episode! But where did the concurrent chains arrangement come from? And how might such a procedure be used to assess preference for different treatment types? Does it work for everyone? I pity the fool that misses this podcast episode.

Great Resource

I absolutely loved the insight from the COVID pandemic episode discussing ABA services in Italy. It provided valuable insight to a different culture of ABA and the importance of teaching ADLS.

Mi'love Jean ,

Worth every minute

I actually started listening to this podcast while I was studying as an RBT. Now, that I’m a BCBA it’s great reuniting once again. This podcast is entertaining, humorous, and educational. Thanks for keeping me engaged from start to finish.

Eh

This podcast is okay for hearing about research on specific topics and it’s nice that you can get CEUs from it, but it’s so hard to listen to sometimes. They have so many random side conversations I don’t care about and occasionally they’re really cringe. I couldn’t even get past the intro of the Bilbo Baggins or whatever episode. The two female hosts are fine and pretty knowledgeable, but the male host makes me want to turn off the whole podcast sometimes. He’s rude and condescending to the women and sometimes to the guests. I think this would be a much easier listen without him.
