[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]
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. Whether you find yourself avoiding writing tasks altogether, or you simply want to use your time more efficiently than you currently do, this workshop is for you!
Participants will understand the behavioral characteristics of writing
Participants will identify the decisions and behaviors that make their writing more productive
Participants will identify the decisions and behaviors that make their writing less productive
Participants will complete a workbook to guide the initial self-management of a productive writing schedule.
