Episode 18 : Part 3 – Tuning your Babel Fish; Understanding Fluency in The Science Of Behaviour Analysis
In the final part of this episode we join the crew at The Atypical Behavior Analyst Podcast for one last time and ask...“How do you know someone is fluent?” When they demonstrate certain behaviors? Emit certain phrases and buzz words? Complete their SAFMEDS in record time? What about the outcomes we’re usually interested in: understanding what other people are doing and why they are doing it, and describing it in such that a way that ties it to behavioral principles. Meaning, breaking down the information we’re given into relevant behavior elements. Once you have your internal translation, use plain language to gauge your own and your listener’s understanding, instead of relying on jargon.

Episode 18 : Part 2 – Interpersonal Skills; Learning to Communicate with the Unfamiliar
What do Atilla the Hun, Notorious B.I.G., and behavior analysis have in common? Tune in to find out as we meet again with the hosts of The Atypical Behavior Analyst Podcast to talk about interacting with humans on a less robotic level. For some of us, these skills don’t come easily, and we often fail to realize the power behind our interactions.Throughout this episode we embark on a reflective journey where we discuss the value of complex internal behaviours and how our intentions may not always hit their mark. We can’t see the galaxy for the stars; we’ve become so focused on goals at hand that we’ve overlooked all the staff, caregivers, and clients behaviour that are standing in the way. So buckle in, adjust your ear buds, and prepare for your inflight discussion on the value of evaluating our own public and private behavior and the impact on the work we set out to accomplish.
