Wish you could do a better job keeping up with peer-reviewed journals? Why not listen to a podcast where behavior analysts discuss a variety of fascinating topics and the research related to them? Now you can spend your extra time thinking of ways to save the world with ABA.
The "Debatable" Ethics Code w/ Dr. Allen Karsina
It’s time for the great ethics debate! In this corner, Jackie and Diana ready to convince the listeners that the BACB ethics code fails to do enough to support meaningful ethical problem solving in the repertoire of behavior analysts. And, coming all the way from the other side of the podcast-o-sphere, it’s Rob with special guest, Dr. Allen Karsina, ready to tangle in support of the current code because rules are the scaffolding that holds our moral wills and skills to be ethical together.
Ethics of Teaching Cultural Responsiveness
While we weren’t able to record our live talk at the Thompson Center Conference this year, it did give us time to think about the ethical responsibility of BCBAs to include instruction and support in improving the cultural responsiveness of our supervisees. I mean, how else can we expect the next generations of behavior analysts to improve their ability to take culture into account during assessment, treatment, and rapport building activities?
January 2021 Preview
A new year means new podcasts and new resolutions. To help you out, we’re starting off the year with two podcasts all on the topic of ethics. First, we welcome back Dr. Allen Karsina who will literally debate us about the ethics code. Then, we get into the ethics of cultural competence in the practice of a behavior analyst. Finally, we wrap it all up with a mindful podcast about mindfulness in the schools. Here’s to a better year than the last!
Fitness, Physical Education, and Fake Resolutions w/ Dr. Nick Green
This week we discuss improving sedentary behavior, setting meaningful goals for physical activity in the workplace, and how New Year's Resolutions probably won't get you there. And we wouldn’t think of talking about getting in shape without friend of the show, Dr. Nick Green, from BehaviorFit. If you’re tired of click bait New Year articles about fitness and want something substantial, this is the episode for you.
The Year in ABA (2020) w/ Matt Cicoria
2020 is finally over! One of the few good things about this dumpster fire of a year is that we get to end it with our buddy Matt Cicoria from the Behavioral Observations podcast. We discuss the lows, the other lows, and force ourselves to think of a few highs. And enjoy some adult beverages because nothing says 2020 like a Zoom call with wine and beer.
Social Skills Curriculua
If social skills are an important component of human development and individuals with autism often have challenges in learning social skills, there must be a curriculum that lets specialists of all backgrounds teach these important lessons, right? Well, maybe? This week we look at what actual research there is behind commercially-available curricula for teaching social skills and highlight a few of the more promising programs.
