DABA 620 - Organizational Behavr Managmnt

This course examines the roles that the consequences and context of behavior play in the acquisition, maintenance, and structure of behavior. Thorough knowledge of the principles of operant and respondent conditioning in addition to methods, measurement, and quantification, serve as the basis for this course. This course also examines some of the integrative theories, including the matching relation. Topics will include response differentiation and induction, the generation of complex response units, contextual control, stimulus equivalence, respondent conditioning, choice, molecular determinants of behavior, mathematical models of behavior, the dynamics of behavior during transition states and approaches to linking the analysis of behavior of neural function. Topics addressed at the level of behavior will be extended to some aspect of nervous system function and on neural mechanisms of choice.

DABA 625 - Advanced Functional Assessment & Analysis

The overriding goals of this course are for doctoral candidates to demonstrate comprehension and application of structural, functional and branch analysis and the evaluation and synthesis of stimulus control methodologies to determine the controlling factors of behavior. Candidates will demonstrate competency with the experimental analysis of behavior methodologies to determine the function of behavior across a variety of disabilities and disorders by reading, discussing and presenting assigned and self-selected experimental papers. Areas covered include the functional analysis of behavior of persons with developmental disabilities, psychiatric disorders, substance and eating disorders. Ultimately, candidates must design and present a hypothetical research prospectus in which a functional analysis of complex behavior is conducted
