Helping others counter the negative effects of burnout in meaningful ways isn’t easy — but, using behavioral science, it’s exactly what we’ve set out to do.
As diverse as our goals and lives are, defy members have one thing in common: We have incredibly high expectations for our careers and personal lives despite the adversity we’ve faced — and no single one of us knows everything we need to know to make it all work.
defy is a network built for BCBAs to come together for the collective benefit and advancement of the whole community, in our work, our families, and ourselves.
WE'LL SPARE YOU ALL THE LIMITING SOCIETAL NORMS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL UNWORTHY OR UNHEARD.
So, let your hair down, have a little fun and we'll support your authenticity because we thrive on defiance.
After all, building a life that you choose isn't always the easiest but doing it with people you like makes it easier— and it'll change the way you experience each day.
We invite you to join our annual retreat for a comprehensive, guided experience in which we guide you through The BCBA Burnout Action Plan.
This plan includes comprehensive, innovative, evidence-based solutions for your clinical burnout needs and the tools to make data-driven decisions to use with your team and yourself in your day-to-day clinic life. If we've learned one thing throughout our experiences in this field it's that we are:
HUMAN FIRST, BCBA SECOND.
The retreat will be centered around providing you will an experience that will leave you feeling restored and inspired and allow you to form life-long friendships with like-minded, passionate BCBAs so you can tackle anything that comes your way knowing you have an authentic community to support you.
