In this article review, Catherine Jessel begins by interviewing Dr. Jessica Slaton, the lead author of “Interview-Informed Functional Analyses: A Comparison of Synthesized and Isolated Components.” They discuss (a) the inspiration and motivation behind the article, (b) recommended readings, and (c) the experience Dr. Slaton had while conducting the study. Catherine then interviews Dr. Mahshid Ghaemmaghami, an expert in PFA and SBT. They discuss the specifics of (a) isolated vs. synthesized components, (b) false positives vs. false negatives, and (c) considerations for practice and future research. The take-home message is that synthesized components generally lead to safer analyses and quick, significant effects, in the early stages of treatment.


The participant will be able to describe isolated and synthesized components of functional analyses.
