This month on Operant Innovations - Thought Leaders, we are sitting down and speaking with Dr. Jesus Rosales-Ruiz about his history in Mexico and his experience working with Dr. Don Baer & Dr. Ogden Lindsley shaped him into the behavioral scientist he is today. Not only was he not immediately sold on the science of human behavior, he explains how his turbulent ride brought him to UNT.

An extension of Kennedy’s work was published seven years later in 1999, by James Carr and colleagues. Their paper assessed the frequency of social-validity measures reported in the first 31 years of JABA. They analyzed the difference in trends of reporting social validity for experiments that had highly controlled analog settings versus more naturalistic and dynamic settings. The reason for doing so harkens back to Kennedy’s comments about the difference between basic and applied research.

In the 1978 seminal article Social Validity: The Case for Subjective Measurement or How Applied Behavior Analysis is Finding its Heart, Montrose M. Wolf discusses, among other things, the inception of the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis (JABA) in 1968. He writes that he was tasked with stating the purpose of the journal before it could go to press.

Every behavior analyst (hopefully) has learned that ours is a science of behavior. We do not learn that ours is a science of the individual or a science of the person. Why is that? Are we not, however, concerned with people, you may ask? Are we not concerned with the human condition? Are we not humanists?

Generalization is one of those areas in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) that is critical to the success of any child, student, and adult with autism or autism spectrum disorder. The concept of generalization is introduced in any college academic course when learning about how the scientific principles of behavior analysis apply to changes in human behavior.
Join Operant Innovations as we talk to Dr. Florence DiGennaro Reed about the history behind and the current programs at The University of Kansas and the plethora of opportunities in this midwest state (the midwest may not be what you expect)!

When practitioners see generalization as “an active process” of teaching, they immediately move from “train and hope” to delivering ABA treatment compassionately, interactively, and bringing about generalized behavior change that is meaningful to the child, parents, and family life as a whole.

This month on Operant Innovations - Thought Leaders, we are back with Dr. Jesus Rosales-Ruiz as he answers the questions "Where do you see the field going?" and/or "Where would he like to see the field go?" as he dives into The Constructional Approach and asks us to continue to better practices and our field!
