Are you an undergraduate or graduate student interested in behavior analysis? Ever wonder how other graduate students interested in the field of behavior analysis juggle so many responsibilities AND seem to have some semblance of a life outside of their profession and academics? This discussion panel is designed to give current and future graduate students insight on the art of balancing life and work while obtaining a graduate degree. Topics of discussion will include time management and organizational skills considered necessary, as well as how we all continue to contribute to the science of applied behavior analysis through our practice, research, or personal endeavors . Each panelist will provide various perspectives of their own lives to help other relate to the conversation and promote audience involvement in the discussion. These suggestions for developing a proactive way of life will help you obtain success not only in graduate school, but your professional, and personal life as well.
