A Behavior Analyst's First-Year Survival Guide

Paperback

Author: Mariah Avery

Now What? isn’t your typical professional development book. You won’t find a list of learning directives or active student responding opportunities (ASRs). Instead, you’ll find journal prompts, jargon crosswords, and scheduling sudoku. Going from a graduate student to an applied behavior analysis (ABA) practitioner can be like jumping into the Arctic Ocean; the shock to the system is overwhelming. The intention of this book is to help you get yourself out of the water and warm up a bit.

This book is exactly what I would have wanted as a brand new analyst. In my first year of practice I had to learn many things by myself including how to give and receive feedback and how to navigate the world of education. The book is filled with funny anecdotes that I can relate to which makes it so much more enjoyable to read. I also really like the worksheets and the explanations for problem solving that are given. This book is a perfect example of what is missing in the education of behavior analysts and I will be recommending it to all aspiring analysts going forward.
