7:00 PM–7:50 PM
Marriott Marquis, Level M4, Independence A-C
Chair: Megan Erin Sullivan Kirby (University of South Florida; UncomfortableX)
Presenting Authors:
We welcome curious, newly admitted and veteran UncomfortableX members to join us in a celebration of perseverance in the face of adversity (social, political, professional) and to toast to the start of a new behaviorist activist research program! Since 2017, UncomfortableX has encouraged behavior analysts to strengthen their listener and speaker behaviors by engaging in dialogue about social and political issues, historical and contemporary. In 2019, UncomfortableX hosted 8 guest lecturers and 12 professional development webinars, with support from the Dissemination of Behavior Analysis (DBA SIG) dissemination grant. Steady growth in membership has led to over 8,500 Uncomfortable BCBAs around the world, residing in 15+ different countries. Join Dr. Barbara J. Kaminski and Megan Kirby at the second annual offline "Uncomfortable" meet-up!
