Description: Behavior analysts are ethically obligated to rely on scientific knowledge (BACB, 2016). However, despite our best efforts to disseminate evidence-based practices, various unproven and ineffective interventions have emerged in related fields such as special education (Travers, 2017). Pseudoscientific interventions are not only harmful to the consumer but could also deplete resources needed to implement effective practices. Of course, behavior analysts engage in healthy skepticism, also conceptualized as philosophic doubt, but behavior analytic principles also apply to pseudoscientific consumers and producers. Instead of condemnation, behavior analysts should also understand potential contingencies at play for pseudoscientific producers and consumers. Therefore, this presentation highlights potential variables influencing pseudoscientific production and consumption.
