COMMUNICATING OUR SCIENCE & PRACTICE
ABAI is pleased to present eight sections of blogs representing areas of interest to contemporary behavior analysts. Each section is coordinated by a leading scholar in our field, all of whom will be regularly sharing research and commentary to provide you with the need-to-know content of how behavior analysis is changing, or could be changing, our world.
The purpose of the blogs is to connect behavior analyst practitioners, researchers, academicians, and other supporters of the field to newsworthy items relevant to the science of behavior. Included will be news stories, scholarly articles, commentaries, and occasional guest bloggers. All the bloggers will be sharing their perspectives on various aspects of our science and its links to both practice and the world at large. We hope you will enjoy!
