The field of Applied Behavior Analysis has received a lot of recognition for its contributions to the field of special education and treatment. The principles of Applied Behavior Analysis have helped us to understand the behavior of individuals with autism, and make modifications to their environment to improve quality of life. However, these principles are not restricted to the treatment of those with disabilities. There are matters of social importance that call for a behavioral methodology to evaluate and address such concerns. Much research has emerged that stretches the parameters of our field and extends ABA into exciting new domains, such public safety, increasing workplace productivity,leadership strategies, and better mainstream education.This presentation will introduce some new trajectories for the field of Applied Behavior Analysis and demonstrate how our field can continue to follow Skinner’s vision to truly “save the world.”
