Part  3: Each panelist will briefly reflect on 1 thing said by one of the  panelist to share an a-ha moment or something they hadn’t considered  before Part 4: Each  panelist will share a closing thought about the topic. This might be an  action item, a key point they want listeners to carry with them, etc. The  views and opinions expressed in this Difficult Discussions video are  those of each individual person and do not necessarily reflect the  official policy or position of any affiliated company or professional  organization.  Thank you to everyone who is joining us live for this  discussion.

Episode 4: Learned Behavior during Extinction
This episode is the 2nd of three parts on addressing challenging behavior and using extinction. In this episode, Megan yet again muses for the listeners and Joe provides his insight as a newly minted BCBA and someone who practices in the school setting. Typically, we are trained to implement extinction with our clients to remove reinforcers for challenging behavior. Often, this results in a drastic reduction in challenging behavior. However, in this episode we discuss, at what cost does this happen and does it make more sense to continue to reinforce challenging behavior instead of using extinction. The episode starts with a discussion around some of the lessons learned during Dr. Greg Hanley’s training on functional assessment that occurred in Virginia in March 2019. Dr. Miller then provides some examples of different types of learning that might occur during challenging behavior episodes. She pulls from examples of her own experiences as a practitioner and also as a parent. Joe gives his input on these examples based on his training too. The episode concludes by discussing the potential negative impacts of extinction bursts, including loss of time learning skills.

Episode 3 The Great Debate: Practical Functional Assessment vs Traditional FA
Join us for another Megan’s Musings episode! This time we are discussing the Great Debate: PFA and Traditional FA. Behavior Analysts have incredible behavior change technology at their fingertips for drastically improving the quality of lives of numerous individuals who engage in challenging behavior that interferes with learning and may be harmful to themselves or others. Is the technology that was developed in the 80s and heavily researched since then sufficient for producing these changes or should we be advancing and progressive as a field and embrace the research from Dr. Hanley on Practical Functional Assessment? Dr. Miller and Joe discuss the two sides of this discussion and share their viewpoints. Before any good debate on a topic can occur, listeners must understand where the debate stems from so this episode opens with a quick overview of the historical significance of Functional Analysis. Then we dive right in to the two sides of the debate: Traditional Functional Analysis vs Practical Functional Assessment. The episode concludes by discussing who ultimately “wins” the debate.
