This lesson will trace the historical development of a way of understanding and predicting human behavior called applied behavior analysis and provide several examples of applied behavior analysis (ABA) in action. Then, you will learn about determinism, empiricism, parsimony, and the main philosophical concepts that constitute the essence of ABA. You will be able to see the constructive directions that the field has taken over the years. Finally, you will learn the difference between behavior learning and teaching. You will take the concepts you explore in this lesson (e.g., contingencies, reinforcement, and stimulus control) and incorporate them into your assignments and the discussion forum. You will also develop an understanding of how you can use this information in carrying out a program for social skills training and how it relates to your personal/professional experiences.
