Who has a seat at your table? Making ABA Accessible for Marginalized Populations

  • IL ABA Conference: Hilton Chicago/Oak Lawn 9333 South Cicero Avenue Oak Lawn, IL 60453 (map)

Behavior analysis provides a powerful technology for changing socially significant behavior and methods to expand clients’ networks of reinforcers. At the same time, many people who stand to benefit greatly from ABA experience barriers to accessing services due to financial need, a history of mistreatment by helping professionals and others in positions of authority, and a lack of available services tailored to their cultural background.  This presentation provides a space for practitioners to explore ways that their applied work can address the needs of marginalized populations, including people who are living in poverty or at a low income level, gender and sexual minorities, and others. Attendees will have the opportunity to apply the concepts covered using scenarios and explore how the BACB ethics codes support work in this area.

Attendees are eligible to earn 3 BACB Ethics Type 2 CEs
