If your social media consumption is anything like mine, you've likely seen some feel-good stories in the media as of late that report on non-speaking students - generally students with Autism - who are graduating from college, giving valedictorian speeches, and so forth.  Unfortunately, what's often underpinning many of these cases is a form of Facilitated Communication, or FC for short. What is FC? Glad you asked! In today's episode, Dr. Jason Travers, Associate Professor at Temple University, joins me today to answer this very question (follow him on Twitter here).  We covered the history of Facilitated Communication, the early scientific investigations that discredited this practice, FC's variants like the Rapid Prompting Method and Spelling to Communicate, where the practice of FC stands today, the harms that Facilitated Communication causes both users and caregivers, and how Behavior Analysts should both view and talk about these practices.  Jason also provides the audience with a treasure trove of additional resources: Jason's Research Gate and Google Scholar pages. Facilitatedcommunication.org  ASHA Policy Statements on Facilitated Communication and Rapid Prompting Method. Facilitated Communication—what harm it can do: Confessions of a former facilitator (Boynton, 2012). An Examination of the Role of the Facilitator in “Facilitated Communication” (Shane and Kearns, 1994). Ideomotor Effect explained. The Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark (note: Amazon Associated link). Skeptic Magazine (Amazon Associate Link); The Skeptical Inquirer.  The Reading Wars.

Before I became a board-certified behavioral analyst, I was a special education teacher working in schools with the district's most challenging students. I've also raised my two daughters, and parenting my own children has had the least amount of influence on why I am a capable parent, educator, and behavior analyst. Having your own kids and being a good parent is a wonderful thing that anyone should be proud of, but it doesn't make you a parenting expert, and that's what I'm going to cover in today's episode.It is so important that people who have training, experience, and ability use important behavioral principles to guide their parenting decision-making. Let's face it, parents are struggling all around us and we see them everywhere. They're struggling to figure out what they need to do to get their children to make better choices and guide them towards growth and development. A huge part of the problem is where these parents are getting their information. Here, I discuss why some of the advice from so-called “parenting experts” is problematic. I cover why using an evidence-based plan is one of the best ways to tackle tough parenting issues. I'll also share with you some of the most common misconceptions about using both punishment and praise and how the 7 Steps can help you.What's Inside:Why some of today's advice from “parenting experts” is problematic.Misconceptions about punishment and praise.How the 7 Steps can assist you with making better parenting choices.Mentioned In This Episode:Just 7 Steps YouTubeJust7Steps.com/workshop

In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor speaks with Karen Chung, Karen has 12 years of experience as a Certified Behavioral Analyst and is the CEO and founder of Special Learning, Inc., an education technology company that delivers web-based training, virtual supervision, and consultation for BCBAs anywhere in the world. Aside from her work with Special Learning, Karen has been at work building the Ethical Standards Board, an online database of certified ABAs and registered behavioral technicians available for the public to find qualified clinicians and agencies. Together they discuss the current state of the Behavioral Analysis field, some of the challenges of rapid growth, and the demand for services, as well as highlighting some of the gaps in the ethics code and how that fails to regulate the quality of treatment from large private equity firms. Finally, we discuss a new service called the Ethics Standards Board for ABA Centers (ESBAP), which provides a centralized database of ABA Agencies that are rated by their performance by peers as well as by their clients.

Whether we refer to handlers working with animals or teachers working with people, how much of an impact does the consistency of the handler matter?

If you care about the future of ABA, it's important to understand not only its strengths, but also the myriad challenges the field faces. And to that end, I can't think of a more difficult challenge the field of Applied Behavior Analysis has right now than figuring out how to adequately measure outcome quality, and how this relates to funding ABA services.  My guest for Session 196 is Amanda Ralston, and she's been thinking a lot about these issues for quite some time, and she was kind enough to spend some an hour with me to share her thoughts.  As you'll learn in this episode, Mandy has been in the ABA field for over 20 years, and has experience founding and operating a large, statewide ABA provider, consulting with large multi-state ABA organizations, and much more. Mandy most recently founded NonBinary Solutions, which she talks about briefly. We discuss the current model of insurance reimbursement, and contrast that with what's referred to as Value-Based Pay or Value-Based Care. These payment models differ considerably from the current Fee-For-Service arrangements that most listeners are likely familiar with.  While Behavioral Observations is not a health-care policy podcast, I was encouraged to explore this topic by some friends and confidants, largely because this treatment model may be coming our way at some point. Given that Behavior Analysis is not a mature field as of 2022 - especially when it comes to funding our services - I thought it would be a good idea to explore the topic.  If you experience this conversation the same way I did, I think you'll come to the realization that there are more questions than answers when it comes to Value-Based Care (many of which are articulated in this short video), so I may return to this topic from time to time as things develop.  Here are some links to resources we discussed: NonBinary Solutions website, Instagram. Mandy's personal website, with links to related topics of interest. Council of Autism Service Providers (CASP).

Last week we began a conversation with Dr. Claire St Peter. Claire is a Professor of Psychology at West Virginia University. She is the Director of Graduate Training, and the Coordinator of the Behavior Analysis program area at the University - and she is also a horse person. We're celebrating the publication of an article we wrote together for the Journal of Experimental Analysis of Behavior on Loopy Training. This was in response to a call for papers that the Journal put out last fall that asking for articles that explored the connections between the applied animal behavior community and the broader behavior analytic community. Claire asked if I would like to write a paper with her. The result is our article entitled “Connecting Animal Trainers and Behavior Analysts Through Loopy Training.” We celebrated the on-line publication of the article by recording this podcast. Towards the end of Part 1, we talked about what is was like to write an article together, then we started down rabbit holes. In this episode we focus in on the effect that consistency - or the lack of consistency - in the handler has on the learner. We look at chains, stimulus control and procedural integrity.

A brief follow-up to Episode 9. A reflection on some of the ways I fostered a healthy relationship to self, and how that was necessary for engaging with the enneagram of personality as a channel for growth. Before you deconstruct your ego you have to build a robust relationship to self so you have somewhere to stand while you do it. I don't mean developing a static sense of a static self—quite the opposite. It's about developing a dynamic and ever-evolving set of practices and perspectives concerning Self, your selves' observable behaviors, acceptance and change. Now is the best time to start. Begin, continue, begin again. Mentioned in this episode: - The Avett Brothers band and their song Shame - Noting and labeling practice to get to know one's internal processes (a practice I learned as taught by Shinzen Young) - The refractory period of an emotion Self-compassion (particularly the work of Kristin Neff) - Ellen Langer's (very American) definition of mindfulness as a flexible cognitive state in which one is able to perceive and process new information - A popular, secular Buddhist definition of mindfulness as a state of intentional and nonjudgmental attention to the present moment (I think this may have originated with Jon Kabat-Zinn, whose book Full-Catastrophe Living was one of my most powerful introductions to formal meditation practice; I can't recommend his work highly enough) - Barbara Fredrickson's broaden and build theory - The field of Behavior Analysis and the book Self-Directed Behavior by David L.

In behavior analysis, we love our acronyms! Today, we're talking about what the ABC's of behavior are. We'll share how you can take ABC data, why it's so important, and so much more. All too often, we're faced with compiling ABC data from a large amount of information, which can be overwhelming. Data is ultimately supposed to make our lives easier and help us do a better job as practitioners. ABC stands for antecedent, behavior, and consequence and when we refer to behavior, that includes the surrounding environment and what's happening as well. There's always something that happens to trigger a certain behavior as well as something that happens afterward, and ABC strives to capture the complete picture. We really want to know specifics around these points, and it helps to keep things super simple. Here, we share helpful tips so you can collect the best data possible as well as how to work alongside teachers and other practitioners.What's Inside:Why ABC data is important.How to collect simple, impactful data.Helpful tips for working with teachers and other professionals.Mentioned In This Episode:HowToABA.com/joinHow to ABA on YouTubeFind us on FacebookFollow us on Instagram

In this episode, we talked about the behavioural factors at play when athletes risk so much by taking banned substances.Very few athletes HAVEN'T tested positive for drugs at some point. Of the 30 fastest men's 100m sprint times ever, only nine have been run by an athlete not banned for drugs, all by Jamaica's Usain Bolt. He holds the record for the three fastest 100m sprints in history.A survey of US Olympians or aspiring Olympians who were asked if they would use a banned performance enhancing drug were given two scenarios:* You will not be caught and you will win.98% of the athletes said they would use the banned performance enhancing drug in this case.* You will win every competition you enter for the next five years but will then die from the side effects.50% of athletes said they would use the banned performance enhancing drug in this case (Bamberger, 1997).The results show just how strong the ‘win at all' costs attitude is across sporting individuals, only enhanced by the social pressures encountered by every athlete across every sport and level.Accidental vs purposefulWhose responsibility?Crossfit being such an all-rounderCost benefit analysisRisks:- Getting caught- Reputation marred for life- Losing titles / sponsorship- Lower fertility- BaldnessRewards:- World records- Faster recovery- Money- Fame- Long term strength gainsRisk aversionSimilar arenas in which such risky behaviour occur:Criminal behaviourDrinking drivingGamblingFree climbing / free divingExtreme sportsInstagrammers doing stupid things for likesPunishment isn't consistentReinforcement is intermittentConnect with Us!If you have any questions, comments, concerns or topics that you would like us to cover, please reach out to us!

If you've been tuning into one of the many Inside JABA Series I've done over the last few years, you're undoubtedly familiar with today's guest, Dr. Claire St. Peter. Claire is a Professor as well as the Director of Graduate Training at West Virginia University.  According to her university bio, Claire's "primary research interest is the assessment and intervention of challenging behavior. She is particularly interested in the development of effective interventions for challenging behavior displayed in school contexts (including the effects of degraded integrity on intervention efficacy) and with the dissemination of behavioral approaches to caregivers (teachers, parents, etc.)." And we do get to this very important topic of supporting typically developing individuals with behavior problems in school settings... but we get there in a roundabout way.  Before getting there, we talk about how she got into behavior analysis, and we spent a little more time on this than usual, because as it happens, Claire was doing her graduate training at The University of Florida at a time when many other prominent researchers and practitioners in Behavior Analysis were going through that program. I won't spoil the story here, but it's worth checking out because in my opinion it provides an interesting window into the development of an incredibly productive cohort of people.  We then transition into a primer of sorts in what's known as the "Constructional Approach" to behavioral treatment, intervention, and so forth. This approach was first described by Dr. Israel Goldiamond, and I highly recommend reading his seminal paper on this topic that was published in 1974. This topic has been getting a lot of attention in our field as of late, and I was thrilled to have Claire walk us through the basics of this perspective.  Towards the end of the podcast, Claire shares a fascinating case study in which she and her colleagues used this constructional approach to develop a novel behavioral intervention for a child who was exhibiting behavior problems in a school setting.  Again, if you're familiar with Claire's contributions to the Inside JABA Series, you know she loves a good soapbox, and in keeping with that, she offers some great advice for the newly minted at the close of the show.  Lastly, I don't want to forget to mention that Claire is the Editor in Chief of the journal, Education and Treatment of Children, which I think we mention briefly. There's a lot of good work being published there, so check it out if you get a chance. Also, Claire has made significant contributions in the area of treatment integrity (aka procedural fidelity), and I look forward to having her back on the show for a deep dive into that important topic.  Here are links to some of the resources we mentioned: Claire's lab website  Claire's Google Scholar Page  Goldiamond (1974): Toward a constructional approach to social problems: ethical and constitutional issues raised by applied behavior analysis  More Goldiamond: A Programming Contingency Analysis of Mental Health  Layng (2009). The Search for an Effective Clinical Behavior Analysis: The Nonlinear Thinking of Israel Goldiamond  Romano, St. Peter, Milyko, Mesches, and Foreman (2021). Incorporating Curricular Revision to Treat Escape-Maintained Behavior for Children with ADHD  Mammacare  Word of the Podcast  Inside JABA 7: There's No Such Thing as a Bad Boy, with Pat Friman Friman (2021). There is no such thing as a bad boy: The Circumstances View of problem behavior  Johnston, Pennypacker, and Green: Strategies and Tactics for Behavioral Research and Practice (note: Amazon Associates link).  Session 193 is brought to you by the following: Supervision Sidekick.

For clinicians working in schools, you probably know that being asked to write up functional behavior assessments is a nigh-weekly occurrence. And while functional analyses may be the gold standard of behavior assessment, barely 50% of BCBAs in the world regularly use them. Rather than wag our fingers for a full hour, we take a look at the literature around conducting the best FBAs possible taking into account time, space, and efficiency. Plus, Rob's spicy hot takes on descriptive assessments! This episode is available for 1.0 LEARNING CEU. Articles discussed this episode: Nesselrode, R., Falcomata, T.S., Hills, L., & Erhard, P.

(2022), The effects of pedestrian gestures on driver yielding at crosswalks: A systematic replication. Jnl of Applied Behav Analysis, 55: 572-583. https://doi.org/10.1002/jaba.905*Road safety isn't our typical 'go to' when we think of health but actually, it's pretty important when it comes to staying alive!*I love this as another display of how behaviour analysis isn't just for autism*Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to sustain fatal injuries compared to passengers in vehiclesThere are plenty of measures to encourage drivers to keep pedestrians safe, but what can YOU do as a pedestrian?In this study,  in every condition, the pedestrian placed their right foot inside the crosswalk, made the appropriate gesture according to the condition, and waited for the vehicle to stop completely or slow down and the driver to motion the pedestrian to cross prior to crossing the street.During Baseline (i.e., no gesture) at Site 1, an average of 5.8% of drivers yielded to pedestrians. Both interventions showed an improvement over Baseline with an average of 16% of drivers yielding to pedestrians during the extended arm condition and 10.8% of drivers yielding to pedestrians during the raised hand condition. Site 2 averaged 15% of motorists yielding during Baseline. Again, both interventions showed an improvement over Baseline with an average of 28% of motorists yielding during extended arm and 39.3% of motorists yielding during raised hand. Site 3 had an average of 26.7% of motorists yielding during Baseline. Both interventions showed improvement over Baseline with 54.9% of drivers yielding during the extended arm condition and 57.2% of drivers yielding during the raised hand condition.Other factors feed in - time of day, gender, location, speed of driver etc please don't take this to mean you'll always be safe just by raising your hand!Not exactly ground breaking, but...It's reflective of many situations we see. We assume we know what's best or right but rarely do we have the data. e.g. clothing worn - we're told to wear bright and reflective clothing but there's no studies into this, it just makes senseThis is where behaviour analysts can helpWhat else could behavior analysts do here?Write task analyses for children and older people who are more likely to be in pedestrian traffic accidentsBehaviour skills trainingGroup level for implementing consequences for stopping safely for pedestriansThe study noted that most vehicles were travelling above the speed limit - this is certainly something BAs could tackle, e.g. average speed limitConnect with Us!If you have any questions, comments, concerns or topics that you would like us to cover, please reach out to us!

In this episode, we talked about whether you can drink alcohol regularly if you have a fat loss / muscle building goal.* First and foremost, I love a drink.* Not talking here about problem drinking * Research is mixed.* What is clear is that it isn't BENEFICIAL for losing fat and building muscle.* Chronic alcohol ingestion impairs pancreatic enzyme secretion, which can lead to nutrient malabsorption, particularly of fat and protein. * Pancreatic endocrine function can be affected*Insulin resistance is a common side effect of alcoholism* Alcohol consumption can alter nutrient status.  Alcohol consumption leads to impaired amino acid uptake and protein synthesis in the liver, along with increased protein oxidation due to necessary cell regeneration. * Alcohol acts as an antagonist to vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B3, and vitamin K.  Vitamin E has also been depleted in those who consume alcohol.* Hormones - Chronic alcohol intake is one of the most powerful mediators of sex hormones. Ethanol is a testicular toxin and can increase the activity of aromatase, an enzyme that converts testosterone to estrogen in the body.  Chronic male alcoholics develop an assortment of endocrine disorders, including infertility, gonadal atrophy, and feminization, caused in part by elevated production of estrogens and low testosterone levels.  Alcohol abusers tend to have lower testosterone (and LH and FSH).* Good news! Moderate alcohol consumption has been associated with health benefits. * There may be some social or stress management benefits but they could also be gained through other means.* Also, moderate drinkers may be moderate people, which can lead to improved overall health.* What is moderate? Half to one drink per day or a drink several times a week.* Red wine isn't necessarily ‘the best' - it's heart healthy compounds like resveratrol can be found in many other foods.* What are the behavioural factors?* After a drink, your inhibitions loosen. Suddenly the 2nd, 3rd and 4th drink seem like a good idea. So do the chips on the way home.* The next day, you're more likely to be tired, dehydrated perhaps even hungover and so less likely to eat and exercise for your goals.* What else could you ‘spend' those alcohol calories on?* Imagine a 3 year old saying, “But I just don't want to live without alcohol daily”. Pretty sad right?* “I can't live without alcohol” Can't you? Do you want to take it to bed at night?* What to do?* Take some data - how often and how much are you really drinking? How do you feel during and after? How's your weight/muscle goals going?* Consider your values around alcohol* Plan for ways to reduce - some booze-free days / water-wine-water-wine / replacement drinks* Take a break completely to reset your ‘norms' - sober October, dry January etc.* Get support and accountabilityConnect with Us!If you have any questions, comments, concerns or topics that you would like us to cover, please reach out to us!

Why do people lie? It's an age-old question that's been asked for perhaps as long as our species has had verbal capabilities.  In this episode, Dr. Corey Stocco from The University of The Pacific joins me to discuss the existing scholarship in this area, as more specifically, the work that he and his colleagues have done in this area. Specifically, we walk through a recent paper that was published in Behavioral Interventions, Further Evaluation of Contingencies on Lying About Homework Completion.  Regarding this paper, we got way into the weeds in terms of how he recruited participants, the data that they had to leave out for space considerations, what they learned from this work, and where they want to go next in looking into the lying/truth-telling dynamic.  We even talked about how Kevin Luczynski's kid earned reinforcement for peeing on his floor.  As always, Corey closes out the show with some great advice for the newly minted! Lastly, on a housekeeping note, if I sounded more nasally than usual, your ears are working correctly. I was battling a cold during the interview, and I hope it wasn't too distracting for the purposes of this interview.  Bon Iver  Matt Norman's appearance in Session 65 of the BOP Prisoners of Silence film Rollins College speech (see the likely incomplete Editor's note at the bottom of the article) UW Eau Claire Behavior Analysis Undergraduate Program  Pat Friman's Under the Dome article A Behavior Analytic View of Human Development by Hank Schlinger (note: Amazon associates link) Stocco et al.
