Behavior analytic principles go beyond the standard clinical and organizational behavior change. In this course, Dr. Lattal compares the traditional and behavioral definitions of wisdom, reviews the goals of behavior analysis, and discusses how to teach wisdom. These topics are then combined to define the wisdom factor and how that affects behavior analytic practice.
