AC4P with Dr. Scott Geller 014 | Personality, States vs. Traits Part 1
Often, as Behavioral Scientists, we focus mainly on Nurture, but it is important that we don't forget about Nature. There are many factors that go into creating who we are. Many Behavioral Scientists talk about this - Anthony Biglan & Susan Schnieder - and many others that also take the environment into consideration - Eva Jablonka. So, as Behavioral Scientists, what factors should we be taking into consideration? How does the environment work in conjunction with our genetics, and vice versa?

Operant Behavior and Snowflakes
Tuesday, 23 Apr 2019 by Andy Lattal, PhD
Sitting here at my desk on a cold, snowy morning watching the snowflakes gently descend to blanket the landscape outside my window (such descriptions reveal why I am a behavior analyst and not a poet), reminds me of the operant (another reminder, too, of why I am not a poet). The operant is one of our most important concepts. Operants are classes of responses that have a similar effect on the environment. That effect can be to operate something that allows their measurement (like a child’s block-stacking or a pigeon’s key peck) or to produce a reinforcer or punisher.

What Does it Mean to Say Ours is “A Science of Behavior?"
Tuesday, 30 Jun 2020 by Andy Lattal, PhD
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 in Times of Crisis
Tuesday, 29 Sep 2020 by Jaime Rus Alba
… in Times of Crisis Generalization in Times of Crisis Applied Behavior Analysis is mostly implemented within controlled environments (schools, clinics, hospitals and residential settings), with a recommended 30-40 hour/week treatment plan. For services performed within a client’s home, the issue of reaching generalization in the natural environment is not so prominent, but we are still presented with the challenge of transferring stimulus control to the … opportunities for our clients.

Affecting Risky Driver Behavior
We as humans behave the way we do for one reason: to get what we need and want. This is quite a bold statement, I know, but it is pure science, the science of behavior. Although the focus of this article is driver behavior, what you will read can be applied to any behavior.
