Panel #22
Professional Development Series: Internship Programs in Behavior Analysis

Area: PRA; Domain: Applied Research

Abstract: Most job indexes predict that the behavioral services field will continue to grow over the next ten years. While this is great news for those working in the field, it suggests a growing challenge to students about to graduate and enter the job market. Specifically, it suggests that the plague of graduates with top-notch educations and little-to-no practical experience will continue to spread. In order to help slow this epidemic and to educate ABA’s student members on the opportunities that are available to them while working towards their degrees, this panel discussion will highlight the internship programs available at four superb service locations: the Kennedy Krieger Institute, Girls and Boys Town, the New England Center for Children, and the Munroe-Meyer Institute. This is a student committee sponsored event.
