About the event

In the realm of applied behavior analysis, socially valid practices shape the experiences of families undergoing interventions. However, the training of practitioners often leans heavily on technical procedures, leaving a gap in the development of therapeutic approaches. This pioneering study explores the impact of teaching empathic and compassionate care skills to ABA master's students, a dimension minimally explored in the field.

Discover how basic interviewing skills, interest in the family, and joining with the family can be cultivated and integrated into behavior analysis practices. The study unfolds on a telehealth platform, demonstrating the adaptability and relevance of these skills in various settings. Witness the significant improvements in engagement with compassionate care skills among participants and their sustained application in follow-up probes.

The event goes beyond academic exploration, delving into post-study measures such as social validity assessments from participants, ratings of compassion from consumer and professional experts, and comparisons using the Jefferson Scale of Physician Empathy. The results are promising, sparking discussions on the implications for practitioner training and the need to expand the focus on compassionate care skill development within the field.

Join us for this opportunity to explore the human side of behavior analysis and advocate for a more compassionate and empathic approach. Don't miss your chance to be part of this transformative conversation!

This will provide 1.5 Supervision Continuing Education hours.
