About the event

Join MABA for an afternoon with Dr. Miltenberger, who will be presenting on Sport and Fitness and Safety Skills. Light refreshments will be provided following the talk.


ABA Approaches to Enhance Sports Performance: Feedback Makes Everything Better

This presentation will discuss recent research on feedback procedures to enhance sports performance. The presentation will discuss the author’s research on video feedback, auditory feedback, and behavioral skills training to enhance performance in a variety of sports including, dance, gymnastics, track and field, martial arts, horseback riding, field hockey, and yoga. The presentation will discuss the ways to make feedback procedures user friendly and accessible.

The Limits of Staff Management: What Happens When You’re Not There?

This presentation will discuss the issue of reactivity in staff management research. The potential problem is that the effects of staff management interventions are evaluated when a researcher is present to collect data, thus risking reactivity to observation as a potential confounding variable in much of the research. The talk describes the issue of reactivity and the need for better assessment of staff performance that does not pose the risk of reactivity. The presentation discusses research on reactivity in staff management that illustrates the problem, discusses potential solutions to the problem, and calls for more research to address the problem.
