ABOUT THE SERIES:

The goal of this series of webinars—Back to Basics—is to review for some, and to present for the first time to others, a look at three fundamental pieces of the foundation of the science of Behavior Analysis: the experimental branch, The Experimental Analysis of Behavior (TEAB); the foundational principle, reinforcement; and the philosophy, radical behaviorism. This series can be considered a basic tutorial on these three critical components of behavior analysis that every behavior analyst (or BCBA) should know.

SESSION OVERVIEW:

The field of behavior analysis consists of three branches: the experimental branch—The Experimental Analysis of Behavior (TEAB); the philosophical branch—radical behaviorism; and the applied branch—Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Radical behaviorism and ABA both grew directly out of TEAB, and without the experimental foundation, those two branches of behavior analysis would not exist. For the present purposes, the point will be made that ABA practitioners are most effective when they are well-trained and conversant in, or at least knowledgeable about, TEAB. This webinar will (1) describe what TEAB is, (2) present a brief history of TEAB and the origin of the term analysis, (3) point out that most, if not all, the early applied behavior analysts had strong backgrounds in TEAB, and (4) describe how a solid foundation in TEAB can improve the efficacy of ABA practitioners.



Learning Objectives:

At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to


1. Describe the basics of Skinner’s (1951) article, “How to Teach Animals.”
2. Name the titles and dates of Skinner’s books that mostly dealt with TEAB, The Behavior of Organisms (B of O) (1938) and Schedules of Reinforcement (1957), and why he described B of O as a “theoretico-experimental analysis of behavior.”
3. Say what JEAB is and when it was first published.
4. Say how TEAB is both a set of methods and a subject matter.
5. Explain what a natural datum in a science of behavior is.
6. Explain the literal meaning of behavior analysis, including what its three branches are.
7. Explain the meaning of the term analysis, including its origin in behavior analysis, and distinguish between an experimental and a functional analysis.
8. List some ways that knowing about or being trained in TEAB can make one a better practitioner.
