Business Meeting #454
Behavior Analysis in Military and Veteran Affairs
Monday, May 25, 2020
7:00 PM–7:50 PM EDT
Virtual
Chair: Abigail B. Calkin (Calkin Consulting Center)
Presenting Authors:
The Military and Veterans SIG is devoted to the application of behavior analysis to military service members' and veterans’ issues. This is a group whose emphasis concerns veterans of all wars. Governments have been concerned about the number of veterans suffering from brain or spinal injuries, post-traumatic stress, suicidal issues, lack of access to social services, and addiction problems related to their active duty service. The SIG approaches these issues from the perspective of public events, inner (or private) events, and verbal behavior while looking at each of these areas in which behavior analysis has developed effective treatments. This SIG promotes awareness of these issues and facilitates the research and practice of applied behavior analysis with this population.

Presenting Authors:
The Behavioral Medicine Special Interest Group (SIG) focuses on the application of behavior analytic methodology to the prevention and treatment of behaviors associated with chronic illness and disease, and the promotion of behaviors associated with improved health and treatment adherence. The role of behavior analysis is important in the field of behavioral medicine. It is the mission of the SIG to encourage interdisciplinary research in the areas of behavioral health promotion, emphasizing the need for function-based and empirically validated treatments for chronic health disorders. The Behavioral Medicine SIG offers students, researchers, practitioners, and consumers opportunities to discuss issues related to public health promotion and disease prevention. All are welcome to join the Behavioral Medicine SIG. We hope that the SIG will help consumers and practitioners better understand the role of behavior analysis in the field of behavioral medicine, and provide an outlet for discussions of current and developing research within the field. The annual business meeting is open to all conference attendees interested in behavioral health and medicine. The meeting will be conducted to discuss various administrative matters relevant to the Behavioral Medicine SIG. In addition, during the business meeting, the Behavioral Medicine Student Research Award winner will be announced and receive their award.
