Challenging Conversations.... there is certainly no lack of these within the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. Whether you are mediating staff relationships, interacting with critical payor sources, or speaking with a family that just received their child's first diagnosis, learning how to handle challenging conversations in our field is often only learned through years of experience. Challenging conversations can pose undue stress, anxiety, and burnout within our field. Our goal is to address challenging situations with a solution-focused mindset while incorporating essential components like compassionate care, perspective taking, and cultural sensitivity during problem solving. In this panel we will discuss different challenging scenarios and conversations faced from the perspectives of different types of practitioners in the field of ABA and autism. The panelists will share hard-learned navigational tools to prepare you for diverse challenging scenarios and teach you how to handle these conversations with confidence.
