ABA is the abbreviation for Applied Behavior Analysis, the science that studies human behavior using evidenced-based or proven, techniques.

Jack Michael is one of the most brilliant men ever to grace the field of behavior analysis. He engaged in deep and elegant conceptual analysis, and significantly expanded our understanding of the nature of behavior.

He uses literature to make the case for an increased focus on experimental and conceptual analysis. With an understanding that behavior is multiply controlled, it seems obvious that no single form of treatment will work.
