Behavior analysts work in an ever changing environment where it is crucial to maintain interaction with peers and mentors to provide the most effective access to our science as possible. The purpose of this presentation is to explore a few stories of how specific clients or “problems” have resulted in important personal discoveries within the science of behavior analysis. Broad scale technological advancements are an incredible feat to achieve for our science. However, sometimes the most important accomplishments come from the technologies we develop specific to a certain client or experience that we can then more broadly apply to the work we do as behavior analysts. Most often the problem you seek to solve is vastly different from the actual reason for lack of progress in the first place. Attendees of this presentation should leave with a sense of how to pinpoint the relevant problem and develop solutions for solving it.
- Attendees will be able to describe how to approach at least 1 barrier to learning
- Attendees will be able to describe why the analysis in behavior analysis is a crucial component of the work behavior analysts do day in and day out
