  • Welcome to ABA Ultimate Showdown - a podcast promoting constructive, respectful, and professional discourse to advance the field of behavior analysis.

  • Round 5 of the Showdown will debate whether or not the current BACB supervisory system is sufficient to train effective behavior analysts. We draw analogies to other disciplines, discuss how autonomy and variation affect the supervisory experience, and debate whether or not the system takes advantage of supervisees. We conducted our own survey with 134 respondents. 

  • A lot of women hours went into researching, collaborating, publishing, and editing this episode. During this debate, we construct arguments for both sides to present the audience with a comprehensive and balanced view.

Round 4: Restraints are not appropriate to use regardless of the severity of the behavior.

  • Welcome to ABA Ultimate Showdown - a podcast promoting constructive, respectful, and professional discourse to advance the field of behavior analysis.

  • Round 4 of the Showdown attempts to respectfully cover the frequently debated topic of restraints. Since this topic is so controversial within and outside of our field, we were very careful about our wording and opinions. We cover primarily mechanical and physical restraints and whether or not it’s appropriate to use on our clients to keep them and their surrounding family and staff safe.  

  • A lot of women hours went into researching, collaborating, publishing, and editing this episode. During this debate, we construct arguments for both sides to present the audience with a comprehensive and balanced view.

Round 3: Behavior analysts should not accept gifts because it creates a dual relationship. 

Published on: August 1, 2019 at 6:00 AM

https://anchor.fm/abashowdown/episodes/Round-3-The-Ethical-Dilemma-of-Gifts-e4okli 


 

  • Welcome to ABA Ultimate Showdown - a podcast promoting constructive, respectful, and professional discourse to advance the field of behavior analysis.

  • Round 3 of the Showdown attempts to answer that longstanding question - to accept gifts or not to accept gifts? We cover the legendary glass of water question, compare us to other disciplines, and bring up a lot of points you may not have thought of. Most importantly, we attempt to help practitioners in the field make ethical decisions surrounding gifts. Join us as we debate whether or not behavior analysts should accept gifts. 

  • A lot of women hours into this one researching, collaborating, publishing, and editing. During this debate, we construct arguments for both sides to present the audience with a comprehensive and balanced view.

Round 1: Practical Functional Assessment (IISCA) vs. the Traditional Functional Analysis

Published on: May 21, 2019 at 5:11 PM

https://anchor.fm/abashowdown/episodes/Round-1-Practical-Functional-Assessment-IISCA-vs--the-Traditional-Functional-Analysis-e42a7n

 

We are stoked to be able to bring you Round 1 of the Showdown. Our first topic will be the hotly debated practical functional assessment that includes the interview-informed, synthesized contingency analysis, or IISCA, vs the traditional functional analyses, or FA. We are covering this topic across a precursor episode and one round. We put over 100 women hours over five months into this particular podcast and spent many a late night and early morning trying to fairly and accurately portray both sides and perfect the final product. During this debate, we will construct arguments for both sides to present the audience with a comprehensive and balanced view of two sides of a controversial topic.

Precursor to Round 1: Practical Functional Assessment(IISCA) vs. the Traditional Functional Analysis

Published on: May 21, 2019 at 10:12 AM

https://anchor.fm/abashowdown/episodes/Precursor-to-Round-1-Practical-Functional-AssessmentIISCA-vs--the-Traditional-Functional-Analysis-e43ggj

 

Welcome to ABA Ultimate Showdown - a podcast promoting constructive, respectful, and professional discourse to advance the field of behavior analysis.  We are stoked to be able to bring you this precursor episode of the Showdown. Our first topic will be the hotly debated practical functional assessment that includes the interview-informed, synthesized contingency analysis, or IISCA, vs the traditional functional analyses, or FA. We are covering this topic across a precursor episode and one round.  As we stated in our introductory episode, good debates include definitions of any relevant terms to ensure that the debate is focused on the motion and not on parsing words. This debate requires slightly more than a few definitions so we created this, aptly named, precursor episode to include more detail. Enjoy learning a little more about the traditional functional analysis (FA) and about the practical functional assessment, which includes the interview-informed, synthesized contingency analysis (IISCA)! We put over 100 women hours over five months into this particular podcast and spent many a late night and early morning trying to fairly and accurately portray both sides and perfect the final product.
