ABA Students Share Results of Field Work Projects at 2022 Poster Expo
On April 27, 2022 ABA masters student shared their practicum case studies during the first face to face Community Applications of Behavior Analysis (CABA) event since the COVID-19 pandemic. CABA is an annual event in which masters students end the Spring semester with an opportunity to showcase their applications of behavioral principles learned in class to their clients under the guidance of their practicum supervisors. One of our community partners, Behavioral Evolution, Inc. sponsored a catered lunch from Pepo’s Café which was enjoyed by our students, faculty, and community partners.
During the event, thirty-eight first- and second-year masters students shared their case studies conducted in the community. Doctoral students and faculty served as reviewers in which students’ presentations were assessed and graded using a standard measure of quality. Case studies focused on a variety of socially significant issues including toilet training, self-management, and using differential reinforcement procedures to reduce screaming and increase transitions between classroom activities.
Additionally, the event served as an opportunity to introduce the new Practicum Coordinators to our community partners (Dr. Meka McCammon – (on-campus MS program) and Dr. Jesse DePaolo (online MA program)).
