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.
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.
Today we are joined by Dr. Holly Rittenhouse-Cea from University of Dayton's Online ABA Program. This isn't just your ordinary online program, with small cohorts and a plethora of opportunities to connect with faculty and other students you are guaranteed to get out of this program, what you put in.
Today we are joined by Dr. Doug Greer, Dr. Jessica Dudek, & Dr. Daniel Fienup from Teachers College Columbia University and CABAS. This is one of the oldest programs in the country and has developed into a very unique program. To quote Dr. Doug Greer, "We’re sort of like Indiana Jones. We want to get our whip, hat, and go out there and deal with it, but we don't use whips."

To individuals who are unfamiliar with or are not fluent in behavior-analytic terminology, the language can seem displeasing and off-putting. Many technical terms used in the science have a very different meaning than their everyday use and may even have a negative connotation.
The goal of ABA practitioners is to help consumers of behavior-analytic services achieve meaningful outcomes. Such a noble goal demands the identification and implementation of effective interventions.
