Abstract: It is imperative that Public Health professionals continue to engage in continuing education related to cultural humility. This presentation will review the intersection of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), a scientific approach to understanding behavior and how it can be utilized by practitioners working in community health. ABA refers to a set of principles that focus on how behaviors change, or are affected by the environment, as well as how learning takes place. In this training, participants will learn tools for meaningful behavior change to increase accountability in allyship such as learning to identify and self-correct microaggressions, using appropriate pronouns and treating “allyship” as a verb instead of a noun.
