The Berkshire Association for Behavior Analysis and Therapy (BABAT) will be hosting our 9th annual Social and Networking Event on April 16th this year.  Due to the current set of circumstances we have moved this event to a remote platform. While the transition to a remote platform was not an easy task, we were able to add multiple presentations to an already impressive line-up and continue to include “social” opportunities through small-group breakout sessions to discuss some important topics in the field. 

Below you will find a listing of speakers, topics, and CEU availability for each of our live streamed sessions.  Earn up to 6.5 BACB CEUs (including 2 Ethics and 1.5 Supervision CEUs) and participate in discussion-based breakout sessions!  The BABAT Social Event online streaming counts as “live” for the purposes of obtaining 50% of your CEUs from live events for MA licensure!
