Abstract: Any context in which organisms behave is of interest to behavior analysts and, in most cases, studied by behavior analysts. However, many of these areas are not as broadly known as many of the traditional research domains within the field. In order to highlight some of the non-traditional research topics that are being explored by behavior analysts, this panel brings together researchers asking questions related to working with couples in therapeutic settings, organizational behavior management, consumer behavior, and drug addictions. Each member of the panel will discuss their application of behavior analysis to the non-traditional topic, followed by a discussion of their experience with expanding the domain of behavior analysis and what they feel behavior analysis can contribute to these domains. This is a student committee sponsored event.
