ABA 870 - Research Project

The course consists of supervised experience in the development and conduct of an empirical problem oriented research project related to the assessment and modification of behavior with various types of clients/settings. Under the supervision of their Doctoral Advisor, students may begin this project at any time during their academic tenure in the Ph.D. program, prior to enrolling in this one semester course. The focus of these activities may include assessment interviews and observations, analysis of controlling variables within the immediate environment of the client, assessment of resources for change, and the implementation and evaluation of behavior change procedures for whom previously demonstrated evidence based interventions have failed. Students will give oral presentations and evaluation to the faculty supervisor and fellow doctoral students on a regular basis during research conferences. The expectation of this course is the production of a formal manuscript submitted for publication and/or presented at a professional conference.
