[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]

The general public are more aware of behavior analysis than ever before. As a result, behavior analysts are finding themselves more and more frequently challenged to apply behavior analytic principles in contexts and formats that are startling different from those in which they were trained. For some, this includes employing behavior analytic approaches with individuals whose primary difficulties include their responses to private events (e.g., anxiety or suicidal thoughts), and for whom talk therapy would be the standard treatment. This presentation provides (1) an historical overview of behavior therapy and clinical behavior analysis, (2) a review of the current status of behavior therapy and clinical behavior analysis, (3) an overview of ACT, one clinical behavior analytic approach, and (4) recommendations for behavior analysts as individuals and for behavior analysis as a field.


Learning Objectives:

After attending this webinar, participants should be able to:

1. Describe 3 key events in the overlapping histories of behavior therapy and clinical behavior analysis,
2. Describe 2 aspects of the current status of behavior therapy and clinical behavior analysis,
3. Describe psychological flexibility interventions (i.e., ACT) in behavior analytic terms
4. Name 2 recommendations for behavior analysis in meeting needs of clients typically served in behavior therapy and clinical behavior analysis
