Many seasoned behavior analysts have come to realize that the effectiveness of behavioral services as well as the dissemination of our science is dependent upon how others perceive our field. Positive collaboration with other professionals can create allies that will support behavior analytic services for clients and help improve the image of our field. Unfortunately, many behavior analysts finish their education with little or no direct training on how to work collaboratively with non-behavior analytic professionals. For those pioneering individuals who take on roles as one of the only behavior analysts in a particular organization or region, learning these skills at a new job can be challenging. This panel is designed to provide the perspective of both university faculty and service providers on some of the challenges faced working with professionals from other fields. The panelists will also offer advice on overcoming these challenges and forging alliances with professionals from other fields.
