Abstract

As behavior analysts, we believe behavior change can be achieved, whether it is organizational, individual, or systemic change. Changes in public policy at both a state and federal level in the United States have continued to impact the practice of behavior analysis in recent years (e.g., licensure laws, autism insurance, mental health parity). These developments have made it more important than ever for behavior analysts, and those impacted by these policies, to participate in public policy efforts. This presentation will discuss the basics of public policy from a behavior analytic perspective, review public policies relating to the practice of behavior analysis, and provide useful strategies to increase the effectiveness of grassroots advocacy efforts, while highlighting our ethical obligations along the way.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to identify questions to ask and answer when engaging in public policy activities.

Participants will be able to identify useful strategies to increase effectiveness of grassroots advocacy efforts.

Participants will identify at least three ethical code elements related to effective advocacy.
