Behavior analysts often discuss the need to disseminate our science. How do we effectively disseminate the science of behavior analysis? Should we maintain our precise language or utilize language that would be better consumed by the audience that we are interacting with? How do we set the occasion for interacting with other professionals such that we can initiate conversations regarding behavior analysis and the partnerships that we could create? This panel discussion is designed to address these issues and provide examples and non-examples of successful dissemination. Our panelists will give their perspectives on these questions, provide examples of their successful dissemination efforts, as well as explain barriers they have faced in their attempts to disseminate.
