Collaborating with Other Disciplines
A behavior analyst’s work is not done once an intervention is in place. The organization and performers must continue to engage in the needed behavior to ensure long-lasting and successful change. Additionally, in your future careers in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), you will often have to collaborate with others from different disciplines. This will require an understanding of other fields, as well as the skills to determine where you can collaborate and create the most effective treatment environment for clients.
For this week’s Discussion, you will highlight ways to maintain change in organizations by setting up systems for maintenance, and gathering support from others:
- Discuss the matching law and relate it to creating and sustaining change in organizations.
- Identify the role technology plays in the workplace. Discuss how technology could be utilized to help create and sustain change.
- Discuss what is meant by “humble behaviorism,” as referenced in the library resource by Nuernger (1991).
- Discuss how the ideas of reciprocation and “humble behaviorism” will impact collaboration with other disciplines and maintain change in employee behavior in your future career in behavior analysis.
