Course Description

This course will review both foundational principles of behaviorism (e.g., classical and operant conditioning), techniques in standard behavioral therapy, and recent advances in therapeutic techniques that involve behavioral elements. Students will learn to translate this knowledge and understanding of human behavior to real world applications in clinical settings. Heavy emphasis will be placed on learning behavioral assessment techniques and developing treatment strategies based on behavioral conceptualizations. Specific techniques for putting this knowledge into practice will include instruction in functional analysis, behavioral assessment, behavioral change strategies, case conceptualization and treatment planning. Students will also gain knowledge of recent “third wave” behavioral treatments. Evidence and outcomes for behavioral treatments will be reviewed. Education in how multicultural factors arise in behavioral assessment and therapy will also be emphasized.
