217 | ABA Pt. 7: Feelings
Listen now
The argument is that Behavior Analysts don't consider a child's emotional well-being and ignore their feelings. Specifically, this is in regard to blocking or preventing self-soothing behaviors such as self-stimulatory "stereotypic" behaviors. Discussions of feelings are essentially absent from professional discussions as well. The first thing to address in this space is that behavior analysts are humans with feelings and consider the fact that emotions are important. However, behavior analysts are not specialists in emotions and will usually refer out for emotional support from other professionals with experience and training in emotions. The second part is related to the first in respect to the level of expertise.
