We will gather to share reminiscences about Paul Chance, who died at the end of last year. Paul’s many contributions to behavior analysis include the popular text Learning and Behavior and high-profile Psychology Today articles, including a piece on autism that famously influenced Ivar Lovaas. After earning his Ph.D. at Utah State, Paul served as an editor for Psychology Today for many years. His other books include The Teacher’s Craft and the text A First Course in Applied Behavior Analysis. His writing was widely recognized for its clarity and accessibility. Paul saw the importance of dissemination and was a stalwart champion of behavior analysis in the popular press.
