Collaboration is a critical component of interdisciplinary team treatment, and is mandated by the complex needs of individuals with ASD.  For behavior analysts, collaboration presents several common challenges. Working with individuals from other disciplines involves addressing differences in worldview, in the definition of evidence, and in the concept of evidence-based practice.  The successful navigation of these challenges leads to more effective team processes and thus improved outcomes for clients. Adherence to our ethical code and fidelity to the behavior analytic worldview are not flexible. On the other hand, flexibility when dealing with other disciplines is mandated. Understanding differences of perspective and treatment requires a functional assessment of those positions, which will suggest ways that behavior analysts can maximize collaborative efforts, maintain fealty to our code and worldview, and maximize client success.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will describe the need for collaboration across disciplines and strategies for assessing and intervening in collaboration challenges in effective ways.
  2. Participants will describe ways that behavior analysts can collaborate effectively while adhering to their ethical guidelines.
  3. Participants will describe how evidence and data can be used to address differences in opinions among team members.
