How to Persevere and Create Life-Long Healthy Habits Using ABA

Today on the show, the Bitches sit down with Dr. John Borgen. He is a clinical psychologist and doctoral-level board certified behavior analyst. He has synthesized his education, experience, and expertise into a scientific framework that allows you to succeed when you haven’t before. ABA is an amazing science but let’s be honest we all suck at applying the principles to our own life and habits. Dr. Borgen wrote a book called “Persevere: The Science-based Guide to Starting lifelong habits.” “You know what you want to change, but all you’ve ever had for help is some advice and people telling you change is important. You’ve tried to sustain an exercise habit or eat healthier and experienced repeated setbacks. Self-criticism and frustration set in making future attempts even more difficult. You see social media filled with success stories and advice that only seems more unattainable in time.”-Dr. Borgen. Tune in for all the behavior principles! Love you.

Episode 161: How to be a Human and a BCBA

On today’s episode, the Bitches bring on Dr. Terrance Bryant and have a conversation about the state of the ABA field, how to show up and use your soft skills to show that you are not a robot, but a human with real feelings and empathy. You have to have boundaries in this field, but you also need to relate to the families you work with and remember everyone is going through some sh*t. Dr. Terrence Bryant has over 20 years of practical experience in providing Applied Behavior Analysis services to a variety of populations. These include individuals with severe emotional-behavioral disturbances, autism and related disorders, intellectual disabilities, various mental illnesses, and a host of other issues requiring treatment.  He has served these populations in state ICF facilities, family home settings, group home settings, foster care, schools, independent living environments, shelter placements, and other community settings.  Dr. Bryant has a wealth of experience in behavioral assessment and behavior treatment plan development.

Episode 160: PCIT and OOD

On today’s episode, the Bitches bring back on one of our favorite guests, Dr. Steven Kurtz. As well all know, even the best-behaved children can be difficult and challenging at times. But oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) includes a frequent and ongoing pattern of anger, irritability, arguing and defiance toward parents and other authority figures. ODD also includes being spiteful and seeking revenge, a behavior called vindictiveness. These emotional and behavioral issues cause serious problems with family life, social activities, school and work. But as a parent, you don't have to try to manage a child with ODD alone. PCIT differs from the three other interventions in that parents and children meet together in dyadic parent-child sessions where parent coaching is performed in vivo through a wireless in-ear speaker with the child and the parent in a playroom while the therapist works from behind a one-way mirror. Thus, the therapist sees the child throughout therapy and can tailor the treatment according to directly observed parent and child behavior instead of solely relying on parent reports.

Everybody Lies with Kayla Perry, BCBA

On today’s episode, we dive into the art of persuasion and the nuances behind lying. Whether we’re embellishing the truth, casting doubt on the truth, or avoiding the sting of awkwardness, deceptive behavior can be both harmful and adaptive. Harmful in the sense that calculated, methodical lying with a malicious intent of deceiving, could cost someone precious parts of their identity. Adaptive in the sense that white lies, or surface-level fibs, can spare someone hurt feelings and a lot of relationship repair. Persuading others to act as a reference for a job interview is a version of lying the same way posting filtered and over-sensationalized Insta posts is a lie. We tell lies to escape unpleasant outcomes, as well as obtaining access to both tangible and intangible things. Dr. Gregory House said it best: everybody lies. Tune in to divulge your own lying behavior, learn how to align your own motivation with that of others, and conquer your world— one stretched-truth at a time.Love you.

Part 3 of 3 with Bruce Lisker: In at 17 Years Old, Out at 44 Years Old

In part 3 of our 3 part series with Bruce Lisker, we talk about those last minutes leading up to his freedom. He paints the picture for us of exactly what it was like stepping onto free soil at the age of 44 for the first time since going in behind bars at the young, tender age of 17 years old. Don’t worry your girls asked him every last detail from what he ate, to what he wore, to what he did first, and so on. Bruce invites us into his life now, took us for a virtual ride in his #sexyAF Mercedes convertible he always dreamed of owning when he was behind bars, and just keeps it #realAF with us. We enjoyed recording every second of this podcast and we continue to text and be in touch with Bruce. Thanks for tuning in for this three part series. We hope you loved it as much as we love you. Mean it. Show notes: https://brucelisker.com/#top https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4941944/bio https://brucelisker.com/assets/files/Bruce_Lisker_Wikipedia.pdf

Part 2 of 3: Still Locked Up…Life on the Inside

On part 2 of this 3 part series, we dig deeper into what life behind bars is actually like. We were mind blown by Bruce’s positivity and mental strength during his 26 years he spent locked up for a crime he did not commit. If you’re struggling with the stay at home orders, Bruce provides some great ideas of how to keep yourselves busy… perhaps you’re #desperateAF to get your husband’s name tattooed on your face but all of the tattoo parlors are closed? Have no fear, Bruce will give you all the dets so you can get this done (gather an old walkman, a pencil, a toothbrush, and a paperclip). Liat was pretty pumped to hear that she would be an “overlord” in prison. This episode gives you a glimpse inside prison, while exploring a man’s ability to NEVER GIVE UP. Tune in or miss the F%&k out. Show notes: https://brucelisker.com/#top https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4941944/bio https://brucelisker.com/assets/files/Bruce_Lisker_Wikipedia.pdf

How to get what the F you want with Zabeen Mirza Head Negotiator

We were #luckyAF to sit down and chat with Zabeen Mirza. Zabeen heads the North American division of the Schranner Negotiation Institute and brings twelve years of business management, corporate strategy, and new venture development experience to the table. She climbed her way up the rankings being the youngest woman of color to do what she has done. This makes for one badass bitch (this means alot coming from THE Bitches themselves). Her grit and determination is evident in every word that comes out of her mouth. Our favorite line she said was, “ You don’t have to like me, you don’t even have to respect me. However, you do have to negotiate with me.” After listening to this episode you will never settle for anything less than the best.

F#%k #MeanGirls

On today’s episode the bitches discuss a topic that lights absolute rage in both Casey and Liat, Bullying. Bullying is a big freaking deal and guess what, punishing the bully’s behavior after the fact is NOT working. Why the F#%$ do people bully? WTF do we do about it? With the invention of social media and the cyber world, bullying has only increased and intensified. The ladies tie in many behavioral principles that maintain bullying behavior, why people bully, and applied behavior analysis therapy interventions that if implemented correctly could one day create a kind and respectful community. Once again, ABA can change the world! Show notes:  Ross, S. W., & Horner, R. H. (2009). Bully prevention in positive behavior support.

Why the F won’t my brain stop going and going? When you’re finally “relaxed” and then you acknowledge the fact that you aren’t anxious in that moment, so now you’re anxious #FML.

#Addiction

If you haven’t picked up on the theme by now, we can analyze the behavior in anything (impressive huh?). In episode 5 we are covering a very serious topic: Addiction. We are lucky to have a special guest joining us who is a recovering addict and is brave enough to share her story. Liat and Casey break down the topic of addiction using behavioral principles and discuss how F’ing hard it is for people who are addicts to stop engaging in addictive behaviors. When people hear the word “addiction” they immediately think of substance abuse but people can be addicted to a variety of self-reinforcing behaviors including constantly checking your phone, checking social media, exercising, sex, food, abusive relationships, gambling, etc. So this episode is really for everyone. Whether you are struggling with addiction or know someone who is, tune in for a real AF episode. Love ya, mean it.

Dating

In our very first episode of the Behavior Bitches podcast we open up about who we really are and talk about the dreaded hell that many of us are all too familiar with...dating. We talk about love being responsible for you feeling high AF one second and crying on the bathroom floor after one too many tequila shots the next second. People, if someone is showing you that they are an asshole, believe them. Seriously trust your gut. Why do we feed into douchebag behavior? Why are we making the same bad decisions in every relationship? Girlfriends, cut that shit out.  Liat and Casey use their behavioral expertise to shed some light on WTF is happening behind the scenes of swiping left and right.
