70. Association for Behaviour Analysis Australia
ERIN S. LEIF (Monash University )
Abstract: The Association for Behaviour Analyis is over 7 years old and rapidly growing. We are a nationwide association, proud to be an affliated chapter of ABAI. Each year our association has grown both in membership and community involvement. Our organisation continually develops new methods to disseminate behaviour analysis and lay the groundwork to make more systemic changes within funding agencies. As our community of behaviour analysts increases, we are seeing the demand for high quality behaviour analytic services continue to grow. However, meeting this demand is a challenge so we must continue to increase the number of behaviour analysts and quality training institutions. We are pleased to report that we now have two course sequences within Australian tertiary institutions. Navigating the process of self-regulation of behaviour analysts is our primary activity at present.. We are looking forward to the next conference, and hope that this one will be in-person.
