Behavior Skills Training (BST) has historically focused its methodology towards clinical application in the area of autism and staff training. When considering BST from a fundamental perspective, it is important to conceptualize its application to communicated advocacy in the areas of discrimination, racism, harassment, and social injustice. Developing the individual-practitioner skill repertoire within the BST model of Instruction, Model, Rehearsal, and Feedback recognizes that building communication advocacy is a necessary skill to build a solid individual framework of ally and advocate. Experienced racism and discrimination and the eradication thereof will require a community response to inequities of diversity, equity, and inclusion. In the wake of the racial and health pandemic that has affected people of color along with systemic racism that inflicts the country, utilizing the practice of BST and its expanded application will supply the individual practitioner with the skills necessary to communicate and respond to observed discrimination thus standing up against social injustice in their immediate environment.
