Welcome to the Miami Association for Behavior Analysis
The purpose of the Miami Association for Behavior Analysis (MiABA) is to promote the practice of behavior analysis, support local behavior analysts and the field of behavior analysis as a whole. MiABA is also dedicated to promoting the dissemination of evidence-based practices in the field, and provide continuing education opportunities to various behavior analytic professionals throughout the city of Miami.
Behavior analysts who play together stay together! At the forefront of the MiABA vision is to promote unity within the professional community of behavior analysts in South Florida by sponsoring a multitude of fun-filled events throughout our sunny and beautiful city. We plan on taking full advantage of our beaches, nightlife and Hispanic cultural events all as reasonable excuses to relax, unwind and enjoy…Miami style!
What we do
MiABA is also fully committed to promoting legislation in support of behavior analytic practice. As professionals, we are forever bound by our ethical guidelines to provide evidence-based treatment interventions to those in need, and are always in defense of our clients who oftentimes cannot speak for themselves, Individually we have a voice, but united we are stronger and louder. Join MiABA and be loud…Miami loud!
