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:

This webinar will present the basics of the philosophy of the science of behavior analysis—radical behaviorism. After presenting a brief history of the term radical behaviorism, the webinar will address how we behavior analysts define terms, both everyday terms and technical behavioral terms, based on a functional analysis of verbal behavior as first presented by Skinner (1945) and further elucidated in Verbal Behavior (1957). The webinar will also explain how we learn to tact and describe both public behaviors and private events and, thus, how such tacts can be taught. Additionally, the webinar will discuss certain philosophical assumptions that behavior analysts, like all scientists, hold and their implications not only for understanding behavior but for changing it in applied settings. Implications for practitioners dealing with trying to teach such abstract concepts as empathy, perspective-taking, etc., will be discussed.
