World Behavior Analysis Day!
March 20th, 2021 is the inaugural World Behavior Analysis Day! This date was chosen because it is the birthday of Burrhus Frederic (B.F.) Skinner (March 20, 1904 – August 18, 1990), the founder of contemporary behavior analysis. He once said, "when you run into something interesting, drop everything else and study it." We followed his lead by disseminating behavioral science to police academy training and law enforcement. We think he'd be proud of the field's accomplishments in the decades since his passing and yet unsatisfied by it's current reach. Let's get to work!
