Miss. Behaving with BCBA, Kathryn Goerges: Focus on Challenging Behavior
Play • 53 min

On today’s episode we have BCBA, Kathryn Goerges on the show to discuss how she works with extremely challenging behavior and how important it is to look at the true function of the behavior. We talk about about the importance of conducting functional analysis in your practice and not just throwing the kitchen sink at problem behaviors. Casey was still reeling after seeing Dr. Gregory Hanley present his work on the IISCA and Practical Functional Assessment so there are a ton of amazing “AH-HA” moments during this episode. If you are struggling with trying to treat  problem behaviors and need some inspiration, then tune in baby. We have Journal Articles referenced in the show notes that can hopefully help you, help your clients. After all, they deserve the BEST.
