Beautiful Humans: The Social ChangeCast

Science & Medicine

On this episode we are joined by co-author of Multiculturalism and Diversity in Applied Behavior Analysis, Shawn Capell. He gives us a peek inside if his book and his thoughts on the emergence of multiculturalism in the field of ABA. This is a CE elgible episode. Check the deets below: The process of becoming a behavior analyst includes several instances in which an individual is required to demonstrate specific competencies. Competence has become a hot-button topic within the field of ABA given recent world events; however, as a field we continue to ignore the area of cultural competency. As the science of ABA continues to reach the 4 corners of the earth, cultural competence and diversity training has now become a mandate for our science to continue and thrive. Culture impacts every aspect of service delivery and it is impossible to understate the importance of culturally competent behavior analysts. How can we (the science of ABA) address the lack of culturally competent behavior analytic professionals while providing services to individuals with ASD from an increasingly diverse cultural background? Presentation Objectives: Participants within this presentation will identify and operationally define cultural competence. Participants within this presentation will evaluate how culturally competence services delivery can affect both individuals, families, communities and the field of ABA at large. Participants within this presentation will conduct a self-assessment to identify both professional and personal competence in respect to cultural and diversity.
