You're listening to Operant Innovations, a podcast brought to you by ABA Technologies. We are very excited to announce that next week, June 7th, we will be premiering our brand new podcast series, The Lift with Dr. Linda LeBlanc and Dr. Tyra Sellers. And here are our two hosts to tell you a little bit behind why they decided to create The Lift.

Dr. Linda LeBlanc (00:28):
Well, we talked about several names, but The Lift resonated for a few reasons, for one I think that that notion of a rising tide lifts all boats really struck us and we think high-quality supervision serves as the rising tide that lifts the boats of trainees and the people we serve and the entire field. So part of it's just that great supervision and mentoring is how we lift each other up.

Dr. Tyra Sellers (01:04):
I 100% agree with that. And given that we need to be lifted, it's probably important to think about the load that we're lifting and providing excellent supervision, mentorship is effortful, it's not an easy thing, it takes time and effort. And so The Lift also sort of embodied this idea that when there's a heavy load to bear, you have to be prepared for it, you have to do it mindfully. The more you do it, the stronger you will become, right? But it's probably going to be a little painful. And so if we're lifting together, we're sharing the burden, we're lessening maybe the effort for folks who maybe haven't lifted as much in the past yet, and having strengthened those muscles. So sort of this dual meaning of momentum to lift the profession, to lift supervisors, supervises, trainees, as well as the idea that this lift is hard and it's heavy, but together we can bear that burden a little bit more effectively.
