Seminar in Behvioral Educ. A

4 sem. hrs. This course will be comprised of lectures on directed readings in the field of behavior analysis. The wide-ranging theme of this class is 'theory to practice.' Publications from the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis will provide the basis for weekly discussions. Moreover, students will read the seminal book by B.F. Skinner: Science and Human Behavior. Skinner's Science and Human Behavior provides the underlying theory of our science. Moreover, William Baum's book entitled understanding Behaviorism: Behavior, Culture, and Evolution will be used as the second text for the class. The directed readings provide the practical application of the basic principles of applied behavior analysis. The overarching purpose of this class is to: (1) demonstrate how theory relates to practice, and (2) demonstrate how the basic principles of applied behavior analysis can be used to solve problems in diverse areas such as behavioral safety, industry, medicine, education, sports, and the treatment of aberrant behavior.
