    Should We Treat Mental Health with ABA?

    Should We Treat Mental Health with ABA?

    There is a lot of debate on whether or not ABA can and should be used to target mentalistic or psychological behaviors such as anxiety and depression. The good news is, mental health diagnoses are essentially a list of behaviors and ABA is all about targeting behaviors!! The bad news is, there is a large language and terminology barrier we need to overcome. Listen to Ashley and Katie nerd out in this episode about treating mental health with ABA.

    Experimental, Applied, Practice... What?!

    Experimental, Applied, Practice... What?!

    The experimental and applied sciences of behavior inform us of the principles and laws we use in practice. However, there can be large gaps between what the science says and what the real life situation looks like for one individual person and/or family unit. Listen to Ashley and Katie nerd out about the difference between experimental behavior analysis, applied behavior analysis, and practice guided by behavioral principles, why the gap between the science and practice exists, and some tips on what we can do as practitioners to keep getting better!

Good pod

Are really Knowledgeable and I like what they have to offer. Even though they just started they are doing an amazing job explaining. Talking skills for a podcast takes time and is a lot different then normal conversations. They are good and can’t wait for the future of this podcast. Keep grinding :)

Heart breaking

Why would someone do something with no purpose? So….Why isn’t this the center of everything you do? And— even before that— you should be trying to understand (not assume— or observe) why your client is doing a behavior that annoys you. Your coffee example is a perfect illustration of why aba at its core is abusive — it places no value in the actual inner life of the target— though there are many compassionate caring people who are invested in practicing it as a livelihood. Please look into Ross Greene and Collaborative and Proactive Solutions for another method— backed by science— for working with challenging behavior that values the humanity of all parties. They have lots of online information!

Behavior b*tches Ripoff

From the image to the verbiage these girls are just wanting quick fame and copping the behavior B’s gimmick. They had “Dr” Katie Saint on for an episode and now she thinks she’s a star. These two aren’t as knowledgeable as they present themselves to be and really just want some fame. Made it 5 minutes in and I couldn’t stand the “um”s every 5 seconds and the condescending tone of Saint. The only benefit of this podcast is that you can’t see them. Don’t waste your time and if you’re looking for educational information look elsewhere.
