Session 37: Sustainability & Straws with Amanda Kelly!

Do you want to hear a cool story about using Behavior Analysis to improve the environment?

Glad you asked! Dr. Amanda Kelly returns to the podcast to discuss her #nostrawforme campaign. What started out as essentially a self-management intervention is evolving into movement to reduce the usage of disposable or single-use items.

Personally, I rarely use straws, but this conversation prompted me to think about other ways in which I consume single-use items, such as paper towels, aluminum cans, and so forth. I hope you find this conversation just as thought provoking. And feel free to share these thoughts in the comments!

Here are some links to things Amanda talked about:

  1. The Lonely Whale Foundation
  2. ABAI's Behavior Analysis for Sustainable Societies SIG
  3. A paper from Dr. Scott Geller's early seat belt work
  4. The Behavior Analyst's special edition on sustainability
  5. Research Gate

This podcast is sponsored by Britton Behavioral Consulting. Dr. Lisa Britton, BCBA-D specializes in providing independent fieldwork supervision in a remote context. If you listen to Session 29, you'll learn that she has a wealth of experience in both the practice of Behavior Analysis, as well some great processes in place for mentoring soon-to-be BCBA's. I have corresponded with previous mentees of hers, and to a person, they sang her praises as a supervisor.

Also, if you need BACB Type 2 continuing education, why not earn them while you're on the go? How does this work? Again, glad you asked. Click here to find out more.
