In this Workshop, you’ll gain a good understanding of how science views behavior and the basics of behavior management. In addition, you’ll learn about the four primary functions, or purposes, of human behavior and how behavior can be analyzed using a three-term-contingency approach. Finally, you’ll explore the four behavioral contingencies that can change behavior.

Learning Objectives

• Define key elements of “behavior” from a scientific standpoint.
• Identify the main characteristics of behavior.
• Categorize behavior based on the four primary functions.
• Identify the relationship between behavior and the environment through analysis of three-term contingencies.
• Identify examples of behavior change using descriptions of four behavioral contingencies.
