Photo Credit: gustavofrazao –

The field of behavior analysis comprises three separate yet overlapping and related branches: behaviorism, experimental analysis of behavior (EAB), and applied behavior analysis (ABA). The theories, procedures, and practices of each of the three branches should inform one another. Because behavior analysis is a science, it necessarily seeks to identify and implement behavioral treatment strategies and interventions in the real world that are grounded in both the philosophy and research from the field and with the ultimate goal of improving behavioral outcomes for the client.

For this Assignment, you will define each of the three branches of behavior analysis and analyze their similarities and differences. You will also provide examples of how each branch contributes to the practice of behavior analysis

To Prepare:

  • Review the Learning Resources for this week, including the video and interactive media, “Branches of Behavior Analysis,” to gain an understanding of the three branches of behavior analysis.
