Location: Online 

The 14th Annual BC Association for Behaviour Analysis (BC-ABA) Conference will be held online from April 8th to May 15th, 2022. The event will commence with keynote presentations offered live on Friday, April 8th.

The first keynote address will be provided by Dr. Ellie Kazemi (CSUN & BHCOE)), who will discuss developing a culture of care in supervision for behaviour analysts. Our second keynote address will be provided by Dr. Jomella Watson-Thompson (University of Kansas), who will describe a behavioural community approach to advancing community change through multisector collaboration.

BC-ABA’s own Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee will conclude the program with a live, interactive panel describing the experiences of behaviour analysts.

Following the live presentations will be 5 weeks of on-demand access to recorded presentations created by colleagues in British Columbia. Presentation formats include traditional papers and mini-seminars and span a range of relevant topics to the research and practice of behaviour analysis.

This event is being held on a variety of traditional territories as we join in a virtual capacity.  We wanted to highlight the importance of the lands, which we each call home. From across British Columbia and beyond, we acknowledge the ancestral and unceded territory of all the Inuit, Métis, and First Nations people who are the traditional keepers of the land in so-called Canada. We do this to reaffirm our commitment and responsibility in improving relationships, and our own understanding of local Indigenous peoples and their cultures, to move forward in allyship.
