This episode is all about the behaviors that go into studying, finding your why, and how to get started on your studying journey. We figured after 75 episodes it was about time we did an episode on what we do best…..teaching how studying does not have to be aversive. We tie in a sh*t ton of behavior principles #duh.

Episode 154 - Mindfulness in Classroom Management
While mindfulness may feel like the new hotness, is there anything in the research that supports its effectiveness in improving classroom behavior? This week we stop our deep breathing exercises to discuss just what makes mindfulness so popular, whether the results match the increased fervor, and whether behavior analysts should be paying attention. If you enjoy this week’s episode on mindfulness, keep an eye on your feed for a bonus episode coming out later this month with the authors of one of the mindfulness curricula that we discuss!

Lessons from Implementing the PFA Process: Session 145 with The Consultants for Children
In Session 145, I speak with Deidre Sturm and Anne Denning from The Consultants for Children, an agency that supports individuals with ASD based out of Colorado. Together, Anne and Deidre tell the story of how they completely revamped their agency’s approach to supporting individuals with problem behavior. After not seeing much success with their existing functional assessment practices, they dove deep into the work of Dr. Greg Hanley and his colleagues. After taking all the online professional development that’s available on the IISCA or PFA approach, Deidre and Anne, along with the rest of their colleagues at The Consultants for Children, began slowly rolling out this process on an agency-wide basis. During this conversation, we cover how they got started, what they’ve learned from implementing these procedures “in the real world” – especially in the context of telehealth – and lots more. Here are the links to the resources we discuss: * FTF Behavioral Consultants’ online course library (Patron discount available!). * Greg’s companion website, Practical Functional Assessment. * The IISCA App. * Cusp Emergence University (Dr. Camille Kolu’s online training resources for Trauma Informed Care). * CEU’s from The Behavioral Observation Podcast (Patron discount available!). * Greg Hanley’s appearances on the BOP. * Camille Kolu’s appearance on the BOP. * WYZE Indoor Cameras (Amazon associate link). * Children’s Habilitation Rehabilitation Program Waiver (CHRP; State of Colorado). As an aside, an ad-free version show has already been shared with members of my Patreon group, which you can learn more about at Also, if you're a member of the All-Access Patron Tier or above, you have access to 20% discount codes to FTF's online trainings.

Designed for new Regional Directors, the Autism Leadership Academy develops motivated BCBAs into successful leaders in the autism field.

Hypothangry | Dr. Vickie Bhatia
Hypothangry: Imagining a hypothetical confrontation, then playing out the fight you’d hypothetically have with that person inside your own brain. Fantasy fights are often conducted with loved ones or friends, but can occur with total strangers. (See: “hypothetically angry,” the cousin-once-removed of “rehearsing disaster.”) Today, licensed clinical psychologist and Whole30 Certified Coach Dr. Vickie Bhatia comes back to the podcast to unpack why we create hypothetical situations in our head and then get mad about them in real life. We’ll discuss how relationships, trauma, uncertainty, and judgment factor in; where anger really comes from and whether anger is helpful or harmful; the two most common triggers for hypothangry scenarios; and a plan for identifying, interrupting, and moving on gracefully from this behavior.  Continue the conversation with me @melissau on Instagram. If you have a question for Dear Melissa or a topic idea for the show, leave me a voicemail at (321) 209-1480. Do the Thing is part of The Onward Project, a family of podcasts brought together by Gretchen Rubin—all about how to make your life better. Check out the other Onward Project podcasts—Happier with Gretchen Rubin, Side Hustle School, Happier in Hollywood, and Everything Happens with Kate Bowler .
