Event description

Description

THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE BROADCASTED FROM OUR PA SITE TO THE CLAVIN CENTER

Abstract:

Choice behavior has been studied in behavior analysis for decades. Most research on choice behavior has involved basic laboratory studies with nonhuman animals or individuals with developmental disabilities. Comparatively less research has examined choice behavior involving verbally competent adults and the complex interactions of verbal and non-verbal learning histories on choice behavior. This speaker event will explore how a current understanding of choice behavior sheds light on clinical decisions made by behavior analysts with explicit focus on ethical decisions. In particular, emphasis will be placed on variables that may impact the ethical decisions people make.
