Too many students graduate without being fully prepared to handle their professional responsibilities. Instead of focusing on meaningful and transcendent topics (i.e., archetypal themes, conflicts, and resolutions), we tend to focus on immediate requirements and measurements (i.e., rubrics, grade points, credits, etc.). We read our books, write our papers, and take our tests to satisfy rubric requirements, pass our classes, and ultimately graduate; but we don’t normally transcend the material and focus on the conflicts we will face in the future. This Professional Development Series asks those questions, engages these topics, and focuses on the most important conflicts within the field of ABA from three professional perspectives – an ABA practitioner, researcher, and professor – to better prepare students for professional responsibilities.
