While often associated with treatment for individuals with autism spectrum disorder, the field of behavior analysis has a lot to offer all professionals in the self-management of productive writing schedules. This workshop is designed for students or professionals who find themselves writing assessments, reports, treatment plans, IEP goals, research protocols, manuscripts, reviews, and more. Writing constitutes a large portion of professional correspondence in psychology, and often its efficiency is not directly trained. In this workshop, you will be provided with ten strategies to improve your own writing efficiency. Join Dr. Fahmie in the exploration and transformation of habits that may lead to missed deadlines, missed opportunities for funding, and overall lack of productivity. Participants will complete a workbook to guide the initial self-management of a productive writing schedule, so whether you find yourself avoiding writing tasks altogether, or you simply want to use your time more efficiently, this workshop will get you back on track.

Target Audience:  This workshop is designed for students or professionals who find themselves writing assessments, reports, treatment plans, IEP goals, research protocols, manuscripts, reviews, and more. Professionals for whom the topic is within their scope of practice. We welcome students and others who are also interested in the topic to join us.


By the end of this event participants should be able to

1. Participants will identify the behavioral characteristics of writing.
2. Participants will identify strategies for increasing their writing productivity
3. Participants will identify habits that hinder the productivity of their writing.
