Business Meeting #101
Behavioral Medicine SIG
Saturday, May 24, 2008
7:30 PM–8:20 PM
Chair: Craig Alenn Thomas (Mississippi Behavior Clinic)
Presenting Authors:
Our group is dedicated to continuing the legacacy of behavior analysis within behavioral medicine. Many problems of health and illness have a behavioral component. We hope that the SIG will begin to foster a greater understanding of the impact of behavior analysis on behavioral medicine. The SIG continues to collect pamphlets for its pamphlet series on behavioral medicine. It is hoped that this series will be picked up by ABA:I and offered to its members. In addition, the SIG is working hard in conjunction with the Health Sports and Fitness Special Interested Groups and the Behavior Analyst Online Special Interest Group, we plan the release of a new journal early next year (2008). It is the journal of Behavior Analysis in Sports, Health Fitness, and Behavioral Medicine. We currently have an open call for papers to this journal. If you are interested in submitting, please send your article to If you are interested in advertising your practice or advertising a position, contact Halina Dziewolska at In addition to become an active member of the Behavioral Medicine Special Interest Group, please join our listserve "759-behaviormed " located at This list is sponsored by the BAO and the ABA Behavioral Medicine SIG. At this meeting we plan to discuss progress on these issues and to scout out new projects.
