Honored to serve as a discussant / Association for Behavior Analysis International!
Every year thousands of behavior analysts, other professionals, and parents gather for the annual meeting of the Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI). ABAI, "has been the primary membership organization for those interested in the philosophy, science, application, and teaching of behavior analysis" since its inception.
At this event, students, practitioners, and scientists from around the world network (and party!), and exchange ideas and solutions to problems presented in clinical and organizational applications of behavior analysis. Attendees can also choose to share their research or clinical case studies with other attendees by presenting their work in poster format. For example, here is a poster one of my graduate students from the University of Texas at San Antonio presented on the topic of metacontingencies and cultural selection.
I'm thrilled to share that at this year's 47th Annual Convention I'll be serving for the first time as a poster discussant! In this role my responsibilities are to attend the poster session, interact with the presenters, and ask questions about their studies and research.
