Association of Professional Behavior Analysts
Dr. Gina Green received her Ph.D. from Utah State University. Her career and contributions have spanned basic and applied research, as well as leadership in the professional practice of behavior analysis. Her basic research in areas such as stimulus equivalence, published in the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior and other leading journals, has both contributed to the basic literature and bridged the basic and applied divide. Dr. Green has also published widely in the area of applied research, particularly in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, in areas pertaining to developmental disabilities and autism. In 2005 she was awarded an honorary doctor of science degree by Queen's University Belfast for her work in autism.
Her impact on professional practice in the field of behavior analysis has been sustained and substantive, ranging from advocacy for consumers and the issues that impact their services, to championing the role of science in developing and evaluating clinical interventions. Her promotion of the science of human behavior and the contribution of behavior analysis to the understanding of human behavior has been world wide and encompassed countless presentations, publications, and testimonies before courts and legislatures. She has been a major proponent of advancing behavior analysis through the establishment of certification and standards, and the development of legislation and policy on state, national, and international levels. Her leadership in numerous organizations, notably as president of ABAI, has been invaluable in promoting the integration of science and treatment, to the benefit of professionals and consumers alike.
