Panel #9
Behavior Interventions with Minority and Ethnic Health Issues
Saturday, May 24, 2008
1:00 PM–1:50 PM
Area: CSE; Domain: Applied Research

Abstract: During the past decades, ABA has expanded its scope to include drugs and tobacco as topics at its annual conventions. However, to date, it has lacked sessions that have explored the implications of behavioral health interventions on multicultural populations. Behavioral analyst who have experience with different ethnic groups understand the rich and diverse ethnic heritages exist in multicultural communities and that these heritages can be an asset to behavioral interventions. This panel discussion will be the first attempt to share the above mentioned matters with other behaviorists.
