This panel discussion will highlight how to bring behavior analysis to the forefront of discussions, with an emphasis on looking forward toward the future. It is imperative that we, as practitioners, scientists, dreamers and game changers become effective at marketing ourselves and disseminating behavior analytic principles and technologies to others, throughout communities, across cultures and beyond borders. The presenters of this panel will share their personal experiences with consulting; providing insight into their inspiration for dissemination, sharing the moments that compelled them to become involved in dissemination, highlighting those who have mentored them and sharing insight into others they have inspired in turn. This presentation will showcase the challenges one may encounter when attempting to go beyond our backyard. The presenters will describe common (and some unique) obstacles they have had to overcome and will share insight into the lessons they have learned. From these experiences, the panelists hope to shed light on how behavior analysts can raise awareness, increase accessibility of services and effectively market ourselves and our science.
