In this episode of The Behavioral View, Dr. Charna Mintz, Chief Clinical Officer for Action Behavior Centers and Past President of APBA, joins the panel for an honest look at assent-based practices. We travel through regrets of the past, the frustrations and excitement of current practices, and the hopes for a future in which research, training, and practice strike the balance inherently required by humane science.
