Often thrown into the bucket of “behavior sciences,” Behavior analysis is frequently misunderstood or even maligned by members of the general population who believe it is something “done” to a person with special needs or autism without regard to social validity or the environment. As behavior analysts, we understand the great need for the technology of ABA across almost every facet of life. From moms, teachers, and coaches to CEOs and even world leaders, a fundamental understanding of the principles of behavior can drastically improve performance, outcomes, and quality of life across multiple environments. However, our skillsets and reinforcers are predominantly related to the application, not the dissemination of the science. Most people are left in the dark regarding the greatest science in the world. After all, what science can benefit all other sciences by improving the performance of their perspective scientists? This panel discussion will focus on current efforts to disseminate while providing participants tips and techniques for Expanding the World's Collective Wisdom of Behavioral Science to Change the Landscape of Government, Education, Industry, and Society at Large.
