Abstract:

Clinical behavior analysis is amongst the only approaches to understanding talk therapy that has direct implications for understanding and intervening on in-session behavior in such a way as to change behavior out of session. How it is that this occurs has been discussed in terms of nonlinear contingencies, verbal behavior, rule governed behavior, derived relational responding, and other conceptualizations of complex human behavior. The development of clinical behavior analysis as a subdiscipline, however, has been limited by the branding of specific treatment packages that move away from common behavioral terms. This panel will include clinical behavior analysts with expertise in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP, Interpersonal Behavior Therapy (IBT), and Nonlinear Contingency Analysis (NCA). Panelists will analyze sample video recordings of a talk therapy session in terms of behavioral principles that comprise a common ground for clinical behavior analytic approaches. Implications for comparing and contrasting clinical behavior analytic interventions will be discussed, along with questions from the audience.

Instruction Level: Basic
Target Audience:

Behavior analysts, clinicians, higher education instructors, service providers

Learning Objectives: Clinical Behavior Analysis (CBA) is important because of its approach to understanding talk therapy through intervening on in-session behavior in order to promote behavior change in the real world. CBA can be explored and practiced through many different routes (i.e., Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP), Interpersonal Behavior Therapy (IBT), and Nonlinear Contingency Analysis (NCA)). There is common ground in the various CBA practices that are rooted in behavioral principles.
Keyword(s): ACT, CBA, FAP, NCA
