|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.
