Presenting Authors:

The BA in Military and Veterans' Issues (MilVet) SIG is devoted to the application of behavior analysis to United States and United Kingdom military service members and veterans' issues. This is a group whose emphasis concerns U.S./U.K. veterans of all wars. Governments have been concerned about the number of veterans suffering from brain or spinal injuries, mental health problems, lack of access to social services, and addiction problems related to their active duty service. In each of these areas, behavior analysis has developed effective treatments. This SIG promotes awareness of these issues and facilitates the research and practice of ABA with this population.
