Description of Event

Although you might not see time management as the solution to this particular problem, you might be surprised by the research. Creating systems that provide you with a sense of control over your time at work leads to reduced stress and greater job satisfaction (Claessens, Van Ferde, Rutte, & Roe; 2004). This is the stuff you didn’t learn in school that’s essential for success in your role as a BCBA.
