Description

The general public is more aware of behavior analysis than ever before. As a result, behavior analysts are finding themselves more and more frequently challenged to apply behavior analytic principles in contexts and formats that are startling different from those in which they were trained. For some, this includes employing behavior analytic approaches with individuals whose primary difficulties include their responses to private events (e.g., anxiety or suicidal thoughts), and for whom talk therapy would be the standard treatment. This presentation provides (1) an historical overview of behavior therapy and clinical behavior analysis, (2) a review of the current status of behavior therapy and clinical behavior analysis, and (3) recommendations for behavior analysts as individuals and for behavior analysis as a field.

After attending this webinar, participants should be able to:

1. Describe 3 key events in the overlapping histories of behavior therapy and clinical behavior analysis,
