PSY 535 - Behavioral Assessment Credits: 3


A study of the conceptual background and practical application of behavioral assessment techniques. The focus will not be on the diagnosis of a particular form of psychopathology, but rather on the function a particular behavior or set of behaviors is serving. Methods ranging from interviews with parents and direct care staff to the experimental analysis of function will be discussed, with emphasis on the idea that once function has been identified, it will be possible to design a behavioral intervention to treat a behavioral excess based on its function(s), and thus, improve the effectiveness and efficiency of behavioral treatment.

Prerequisite(s): PSY 518
