Marriott Downtown, Level 5, Grand Ballroom Salon H
Chair: Traci M. Cihon (Behaviorists for Social Responsibility)
Presenting Authors:
BFSR is the oldest SIG in ABAI. BFSR SIG members engage in theoretical, conceptual, and empirical analyses of significant social issues related sustainability, economic and social justice, violence, health and wellness, political systems, culture, among others. The BFSR SIG also maintains a close relationship with the journal, Behavior and Social Issues. In this joint business meeting, the BFSR planners will report on our active projects, including (a) the Matrix Project which is oriented toward increasing preparation and opportunities for behavior analysts to engage in work related to major social issues, (b) international outreach, (c) social media presence, and (d) education initiatives. The senior editorial team will provide updates regarding Behavior and Social Issues. Discussion of opportunities for participation in both the BFSR SIG and the journal will follow these brief updates.
