About this course

One of the critical features of behaviour analysis is engaging in philosophical doubt. Many of us were trained to question and analyse strategies from outside of the field of behaviour analysis. However, many commonly used strategies and procedures are passed on in the field that could benefit from interrogating and engaging in a higher level of philosophical doubt. In the second round of this 4 part series, Dr. Megan highlights 4 additional areas of folklore that she was trained in as a behaviour analyst and leads attendees through an interactive process to examine the strategies and identify best practices to improve effective outcomes for learners: Extinction (1 Ethics CE). This is Part 5 of a series of 4 parts. Please visit the main page if you would like to purchase the whole series. This course is suitable for Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBAs), Qualified Behaviour Analysts (QBAs-QASP-S), UK Behaviour Analysts (UKBA, aUKBA) with at least 2 years experience, or those working under the supervision of a duly qualified supervisor or mentor (approved by the BACB, UK SBA or QABA Board).
