Training in interdisciplinary collaboration is seldom a formal component of applied behavior analysis training programs (Kelly & Tincani, 2013). Yet, practicing behavior analysts must frequently collaborate with non-behavior analytic professionals in a variety of service delivery contexts. In this presentation, Dr. Tincani will identify the components of effective interdisciplinary collaboration, explain the benefits of collaborating across disciplines, and describe strategies for behavior analysts and non-behavior analysts to successfully work together.

Learning Objectives:
