Abstract:

You matter, too. It is far too easy to put yourself last, especially when your career is spent putting the needs of others first. Letting this become a pattern can lead to stress, anxiety, depression, or an overall lack of fulfillment in life. Behavior analysts have a unique set of tools to help identify behavioral patterns, hypothesize the function of such behaviors, and determine replacements that produce meaningful change. The purpose of this panel is to foster a discussion surrounding the rationale for self-care, how to engage colleagues and organizations in a self-care practice, and the role behavior analysts can play in this process. By learning essential self-care strategies, not only will you find greater satisfaction in your own life, you will be a greater asset to your field, your organization, and the communities you serve. As the author Dodinsky says, “be there for others, but never leave yourself behind.”
