Description
Appropriate for all upper-level courses in basic principles, applications, and behavioural research methods.

This text provides an accurate, comprehensive, and contemporary description of applied behaviour analysis in order to help students acquire fundamental knowledge and skills

Applied Behavior Analysis provides a comprehensive, in-depth discussion of the field, offering a complete description of the principles and procedures for changing and analysing socially important behaviour. The 3rd Edition features coverage of advances in all three interrelated domains of the sciences of behaviour–theoretical, basic research, and applied research–and two new chapters, Equivalence-based Instruction (Ch. 19) and Engineering Emergent Learning with Nonequivalence Relations (Ch. 20). It also includes updated and new content on topics such as negative reinforcement (Ch. 12), motivation (Ch. 16), verbal behaviour (Ch. 18), functional behavioural assessment (Ch. 27), and ethics (Ch. 31). The content of the text is now connected to the BCBA® and BCABA® Behaviour Analyst Task List, 5th Edition.
