How Jack Michael Expanded Our Analysis of Classical (Pavlovian) Conditioning
Tuesday, 5 Jan 2021 by Thomas Freeman, M.S., BCBA, LBA-NY, LBA-MA
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. But his written explanations tend toward an economy of language: compressed and precise.

Framing Trauma: How do we apply behavior analysis to a mentalistic term?

Function-Altering Effects of Verbal and Nonverbal Stimuli
In this course, Dr. Eb Blakely and Dr. Hank Schlinger describe function-altering operations and detail how function-altering interpretations can be used to explain the effects of respondent and operant conditioning. Other examples of function-altering operations including observational learning and imprinting are then described. The presentation concludes with a discussion on the implications of taking a function-altering approach to explaining behavior in applied and conceptual contexts.
The Sun is Bright, and Sunscreen is Sticky: An Analysis of an Avoidance Scenario
Thursday, 4 May 2023 by Kristin Myers-Kemp, PhD, BCBA-D, LBA-NY, Thomas Freeman, M.S., BCBA, LBA-NY, LBA-MA
As behavior analysts, we constantly try to determine why people do what they do. Often this is in a clinical context. Why does Johnny tantrum? Why does Jane flop during transitions? Other times we try to analyze scenarios as a brain exercise, conceptual analysis for fun, or for those preparing for certification to dissect practice questions.
The Importance of Analysis in Applied Behavior Analysis
The field of Applied Behavior Analysis is growing and, as it continues to grow, we have a responsibility to the next generation of behavior analysts. In this continuing education course, Dr. Schlinger will challenge you to consider how we can do a better job of educating future behavior analysts. 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.
Functional Assessment of Behavioral Disturbances Related to Diagnostic Features of ASD
“Functional Assessment refers to a variety of data collection, analysis and interpretive procedures that vary widely with regard to the procedural detail but share the same goal of producing a hypothesis about what evokes and reinforces occurrences of problem behavior.” Iser DeLeon, PhD, BCBA

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.

Giving Good Feedback: Is It That Simple?
Friday, 15 Feb 2019 by Jacqueline Noto
Employee feedback is critical for personal and business success. Research on feedback shows that intentional and consistent feedback greatly improves staff expertise, productivity, and outcomes. But, knowing that feedback is important and delivering it effectively are two different things.
Antecedents Have Last Names
Monday, 25 Apr 2022 by Thomas Freeman, M.S., BCBA, LBA-NY, LBA-MA
In the latter years of his life, Dr. Jose Martinez, the founder of ABA Technologies. Inc., and the driving force behind the creation of the School of Behavior Analysis at Florida Tech, was heard to utter the title of this blog in every one of his presentations relating to the influence of antecedent conditions on behavior, “Antecedents have last names.”

Practical Functional Assessment and Meaningful Treatment for Problem Behavior
In this course, Dr. Hanley invites you to join him on the journey of attaining lasting freedom from tantrums, aggression, or self-injurious behavior without drugs or harsh punishment but with candies, stickers, and/or tokens. It is important to understand why the problem behavior occurs in the first place and then incorporate that understanding into the teaching of transferable communication toleration skills.
Conditioning the Behavior of the Listener: Implications for Rule-Governed Behavior
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).
