Book Description

This textbook provides a theoretical and clinical framework for addressing multiculturalism and diversity in the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA).

Featuring contributions from national experts, practicing clinicians, researchers, and academics that balance both a scholarly yet practical perspective, this book guides the reader through theoretical foundations to clinical applications to help behavior analysts understand the impact of diversity in the ABA service delivery model. Chapters contain learning objectives, literature reviews, practice considerations, case studies, and discussion questions and are all aligned with the current BACB® Professional and Ethical Compliance Code and BACB® Task List. Accompanying the book are online test materials for students and instructors to assess the knowledge they have learned about various diversity topics.

This book is a must have for graduate students in ABA programs, faculty to incorporate diversity topics into graduate preparation, supervisors looking to enhance a supervisee’s understanding of working with diverse clients, and practicing behavior analysts in the field wanting to increase their awareness of working with diverse populations.

Reviews

"This text is admirably amongst the first to take on the massive task of understanding cultural humility and competency for practitioners in Applied Behavior Analysis. Representing voices from diverse backgrounds, it constantly calls us to action through self-awareness and case study exercises, reminding behavior analysts that we ‘don’t know what we don’t know' - unless we seek this knowledge. I recommend this text to be an integral component and required reading in every behavior analytic course sequence and supervision framework. We cannot be successful as behavior analysts unless we develop the multicultural humility repertoires outlined here. Capell, Conners, and colleagues promote discussion and debate that may at times feel uncomfortable but are truly necessary in moving forward as a culturally humble field."

Noor Y. Syed, Ph.D., BCBA-D, LBA/LBS-CT, PA, NY, Faculty and Clinical Director, Lehigh University Autism Services; Research Coordinator, Global Autism Project

"In a time when many are screaming for diversity and inclusion, very few do more than just talk about their experience or offer strategies of change. In this book, Brian and Shawn have gone the extra step that is needed within our field of ABA and in society. With a wonderful collection of authors, subject matters of importance, historical references, and methodologies to change the landscape, this book will be used as a potential blueprint for many moving forward. Fantastic efforts by a few to help create change for many. Greatly needed and appreciated."

Dr. Antonio M. Harrison, BCBA-D, University of West Florida

"This book eloquently provides an updated view on the importance of knowledge about group memberships and characteristics, empowering the reader to engage in more cultural humility and effective practice. Context is everything, and culture is everywhere. Now it’s up to you to bring that knowledge into practice!"

Ryan O'Donnell, M.S., BCBA, The Daily BA

"This book tackles a number of issues that are at the forefront of discussion in applied behavior analysis; I expect this book will be of great interest to practitioners in our field." 

Matthew T. Brodhead, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Assistant Professor, Michigan State University
