Behavior Momentum Theory and Humans: A Review of the Literature | Journal Club Series
by Dr. Nicole Bank, BCBA, LBA-TX | Available for 3 Learning BACB CEUs
This installment in our Journal Club Series will cover the article, “Behavior Momentum Theory and Humans: A Review of the Literature” authored by Trump, Herrod, Ayres, Ringdahl and Best and published in The Psychological Record. CEUs are provided for reading the article, participating in an online discussion, and completing an article content quiz.
Behavior momentum theory suggests responding will continue to occur in a static environment. Research with nonhumans suggest animal responses are most persistent following conditions of higher reinforcer rates or higher reinforcer magnitudes. This is a literature review of persistent responding across various conditions with human participants.
This is an interactive live online journal club. Participants will receive 3 Learning BACB® CEUs for completing all journal club activities. Participants are required to have read the entire article before attending the scheduled one-hour live online journal club discussion. Journal club discussions will include article details, article results, and implications for practice. Active participation is required. CEUs will be provided after completing an article content quiz on the BDS learning platform. Only those who read the article and actively participate in the live online discussion will be invited to take the content quiz. BDS is interested in increasing scholarly activities and discussion among BCBAs and BCaBAs. Stay tuned for future CE events in the BDS Journal Club Series!
