Applied Behavior Analysis Research Made Easy: A Handbook for Practitioners Conducting Research Post-Certification
I wrote a blog for New Harbinger Publications about the topic of my book, offering practitioners tips for getting started on their research journey, which you can find here.
I have completed several workshops, trainings, and presentations for behaviorlive. These are recorded and available for purchase directly through their website:
- Putting cheeseburgers back on the menu: Recommendations for incorporating ABA supervision best practices into everyday work.
- How to conduct applied research: A tutorial for the busy ABA practitioner.
- The TALL Approach to Enabling and Supporting Ethicality in ABA Organizations (Talk, Ask, Listen, & Learn).
- Guiding supervisees to greater competence: the case for positive supervision in behavior analysis.
I do not offer any services at this time. I hope that families needing help will find the many tools and resources available on my website useful in navigating common parenting problems. If you have a specific question or want assistance finding someone to help you more directly, please complete the form on the “contact” page of this website and I’ll respond!
Podcast interviews, guest blogs, and other media appearances
I’ve participated in several podcast interviews and guest blogs on various topics related to the profession of behavior analysis. Not all of them relate to parenting, but you’ll find some fun discussions about topics like time management, self-care, and finding good balance between career and parenting.
