Behavior Analysis and Treatment (Language of Science)by Ron Van Houten
Synopses & Reviews
This is the first book to provide a detailed, comprehensive review of functional analysis and related techniques. Emphasis is placed on the identification of variables influencing behavior problems, and the subsequent use of this information to develop a treatment strategy. While the work is indispensible for clinicians treating persons with complex behavior problems and developmental disabilities, it will also be of interest to professionals following the debate on clients' rights.
Book News Annotation:
Provides an in-depth examination of some of the issues raised in the Association for Behavior Analysis task force report on clients' rights to effective behavioral treatment. One area that receives a good deal of attention is the behavioral analysis of targeted behaviors. Many of the authors examine how an analysis of contingencies maintaining behavior and the stimulii controlling that behavior can improve treatment efficacy. Other issues addressed include examining the factors that contribute to an effective treatment environment, selecting the right treatment curriculum, making treatment decisions, coordinating the efforts of professionals, disseminating new treatment technology, and promoting generalization and transfer of treatment gains.
