Abstract: Dr. Ward sits down with Angela Cathey to discuss the article “Hearing Voices, Dissociation, and the Self: A Functional-Analytic Perspective” by McEnteggart, Barnes-Holmes, Dillon, Egger, and Oliver (Journal of Trauma & Dissociation, 2016). They discuss the advantages of a behavioral approach to trauma treatment via Relational Frame Theory. In doing so, they discuss the functions of voice hearing, dissociation, and more, along with treatment strategies informed by a functional analytic approach. In conclusion, they caution against defining a field, such as behavior analysis, in terms of procedures. Rather, they posit that the distinguishing features of the behavioral approach are to be found in its philosophical and theoretical foundations.
