Arguably behavior analysis has some of the most amazing outcomes of human behavior change… ever. Yet, we’re over 100 years into this as a community with so many stories that haven’t been heard at the scale required to inspire and motivate change. This workshop will first explore the role of storytelling in the practice of behavior analysis (e.g., Let Me Hear Your Voice). I will then provide a rationale for how to use story-telling within the current behavior analysis climate and culture, including a brief overview of current conceptual and methodological understandings of the role of narrative in behavior analysis and science at large. Participants will then spend approximately 2 hours working collaboratively with other workshop attendees to create a pathway to storytelling that is related to their personal, professional or organizational goals.
- Attendees will be able to state the ABT Method developed by Randy Olson.
- Attendees will be able to state the historical book and factors that lead to the abundance of early intervention work.
- Attendees will be able to state the role of narrative in science communication and pitfalls of not being involved in the process.
