Applied Behaviour Analysis: Theory and Issues

This paper closely examines the conceptual and philosophical foundations of behaviour analysis: Commonly accepted behavioural concepts and principles are reexamined. The paper aims to help students understand current thinking in behavioural psychology, and how this intersects with other subfields of psychology. It has a strong focus on Verbal Behaviour, and theories and conceptualisations of 'learning'. The implications of this for practice as a behaviour analyst and a psychologist are discussed.
