When asked “why do you do this work?” typical responses include the behavior analyst’s commitment to supporting and uplifting marginalized populations. Evaluating whether we are achieving that goal requires a comprehensive assessment of the impact of our interventions, intended and unintended, for all parties involved. In this webinar, we will address treatment teams as complex and sensitive systems, centering on the client’s individual needs. In pediatric service provision, while a team may include a variety of professionals, caregivers always play an essential role in effective support and intervention. Caregivers are decision-makers. Incorporating the “soft skills” required to orient treatment team members to viewpoints they may not otherwise consider, such as client assent & self-advocacy, can present a challenge for clinicians. Assent refers to enthusiastic participation in an activity. If assent is present, it’s clear to any observer that the learner finds instruction engaging and is happy to be present for it. All treatment team members can benefit from attending to the feedback their learner provides on an ongoing basis. Taking a systematic approach to understanding assent, withdrawal, and self-advocacy—and competently disseminating that information to all members of a treatment team—ensures that behavior analysts are aligning our committed action with our collective value to support and uplift our service recipients.
