Accidents and injuries are a serious issue for some job settings and situations. While unsafe behaviors rarely lead to injuries, these behaviors have the potential to cost a company large sums of money and can lead to lifelong consequences for the victim
“Well a lot of lives are lost on the road... We lost more people during the period of the Vietnam war on the highways than we did in Vietnam.” Ronald Van Houten
… but to have serious, open, honest discussion about human sexuality, it’s something most of us would rather not do. Peter F. Gerhardt, EdD
By far the most common form of maltreatment in the United States is neglect . . . Side effects of neglect, short term, and long term, are actually as serious as those of physical abuse and sexual abuse.
OBM seems to be such a mystery to many of us. In this Continuing Education course, Kelly Therrien demystifies OBM and recounts her experiences in the field. You’ll learn what OBM is, how it fits into behavior analysis, and you’ll even get practice using a couple of helpful tools within the field.
Interdisciplinary teams devise and implement educational plans for children with special learning challenges. Sometimes, these involve a behavior analyst. Whether you are a behavior analyst thinking about working in schools, currently working in schools, or working alongside a school’s behavior analyst, you know schools have teams of several people who contribute to each child’s education plan.
Ogden Lindsley was one of Skinner’s students and wanted to use behavior analysis from the lab to help people. This is how Precision Teaching (PT) was born: as a combination of rate of response and cumulative response recording. Precision Teaching holds the same values as ABA, with a focus on only observable behavior and using data to guide decision making while also having learners interpret their own performance data as well.
Topical and systemic interventions can work side by side, and often together, with the same client in order to produce great outcomes. T. V. Joe Layng, PhD
“More than 50% of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder spend at least 2 days per week in regular classrooms. Today, 1 in 3 students with Autism Spectrum Disorder are included in the regular classroom for the entire day.” William L. Heward, EdD, BCBA-D

Understanding rules and rule-governed behavior has been a pervasive conceptual issue in behavior analysis since Skinner’s initial analysis in his book, Verbal Behavior (1957). Since then the exact function of rules and verbal stimuli has been a point of conjecture. In this course, Dr. Hank Schlinger, BCBA-D, provides a detailed overview of the history of the analysis of rules and provides a contemporary perspective on rule-governed behavior informed by Blakely and Schlinger (1987a, 1987b).
Perhaps you work in a clinical setting, where you have provided reinforcement to a client for an appropriate behavior consistently in a group setting. Eventually, another client consistently included in the group begins to emit the same behavior in response to the client receiving reinforcement.
Research is certainly the best way for us to improve our already effective teaching tools . . . If we systematically evaluate our practices, across all the individuals we serve, we may identify what the best practices are for clients as a whole.
The Behavioral and Ethical Implications of Shame in American Culture: A Multidisciplinary Perspective
Public shaming may be seen as justifiable, whether it be through bully shaming, child shaming, or even dog shaming. Social media has risen to be the most prevalent medium in which to shame others. Judges, schools, parents, and others use it as a consequence to punish behavior; however, there may be additional side effects from using shame.
