ABA Inside Track

May 29, 2024

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.
