Business Meeting #459
Dissemination of Behavior Analysis Special Interest Group
Monday, May 26, 2014
6:00 PM–6:50 PM
W179b (McCormick Place Convention Center)
Chair: Amanda N. Kelly (Malama Pono Autism Center)
Presenting Authors:

The Dissemination of Behavior Analysis Special Interest Group (DBA-SIG) gathers to explore ways of sharing and advancing the science of human behavior, spreading information, and providing access to behavior analysis to the public at large. Last year's business meeting involved hula dancing via TAGteach and an update on "How to Train Zombies." This year, our business meeting will feature a viewing of behavior analytic TED-Ed talks, nominated and/or created by DBA-SIG members! We also will be discussing the revival of the Behavior Analyst Digest: International (BADI) and the Skinner Journalism Award (SJA), which now features a monetary prize for winners and the individual who first submits the winning article. DBA-SIG stresses the importance of using language that is friendly and easy to understand, providing a sense of what exactly our science is and helping society realize its relevance. We believe that dissemination of behavior analysis should be an interest of every behavior analyst, as without our ability to compel the general population, can we ever say that we have applied our science to our full potential?
