ABA 842 - Behavioral Approaches to Treatment

The application of science to the study of behavior has yielded a rich technology of treatments and strategies that have been demonstrated to be effective. The emphasis on research design and quantification of results have developed a rich literature supporting the effectiveness of the techniques that derive from a behavior analysis and are conceptually consistent with the fundamentals of behavior discovered through behavioral science. This course will review behavioral approaches to treatment in two ways - from a global, conceptual perspective, as well as an examination of particular methodologies. The perspective throughout this course will be one of behavior analysis.
