B.F. Skinner's Analysis of Verbal Behavior, Part 2
Verbal behavior is a topic that is most associated with a clinical setting. One of the main targets for clinicians, particularly for early intervention, is teaching mands (likely related to snacks or iPads), tacts, and intraverbals. However, the concepts of verbal behavior are present in everyday interactions and impact how we communicate with others.
B.F. Skinner’s Analysis of Verbal Behavior, Part 1
Skinner’s Verbal Behavior may be a difficult read for some. The content is complex but unpacks all aspects of verbal behavior. One can gain a lot of insight from his book if completely understanding it. In part 1 of this analysis, Mark Sundberg explains how language is typically measured and how Skinner suggests language should be measured, and in what units to measure it.
Applications of Verbal Behavior Language Intervention: How to develop and implement a language intervention program
In Part 4, Dr. Mark Sundberg expands on his previous courses and delves into developing and implementing a language intervention program based on the results of the VB-MAPP Assessments.* Dr. Sundberg overviews typical language development milestones and the implications these have for children and adults with language delays. With the assistance of a completed VB-MAPP, participants will learn the steps to beginning, developing, and implementing an intervention program. Verbal operants will be broken down, and considerations for the selection of goals will be discussed.
Skinner’s Verbal Behavior and its Relation to PECS
“When I was in university, I asked my professor, ‘How do I teach language skills to kids?” and my professor gave me Skinner’s Verbal Behavior book. So, the answer is not exactly in the book, but it is ultimately in the book”
Relational Frame Theory and Behavioral Flexibility Training
If you have ever worked with vocal-verbal humans, it would be no surprise to hear the differences in complexity between two speakers. B.F. Skinner developed and produced Verbal Behavior attempting to provide a thorough functional account of language that has proved to be imperative in teaching basic verbal operants. However, refinements for more complex behavior may be useful.

Why People Often Make Bad Choices and What to Do about It
Why do people make bad choices? The answer can be found within the schedules of reinforcement that are occurring for that person. Bud Mace provides a refreshing review of all the simple and combined schedules of reinforcement. He further explains different features of combined schedules and how those can be understood through analyzing behavioral results.
University Series 039 | Clarion University & CLM Center of Excellence
We have had our fair share of unique programs, but this is one of the coolest partnerships we have seen! Today we are joined by Dr. Cristin Ketley, Dr. Cathy Scutta, and Dr. Kristina Zaccaria from Clarion University and CLM Center of Excellence. This program is built to train Behavioral Educators. Not sure what that is? We weren't either, but listen and find out!
