Counseling Concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis

About the Concentration

Behavior analysis services help people to learn new behaviors and to increase or reduce existing behaviors. These services range from addressing challenging behaviors of an individual person to changing the behavior of an entire organization or community. Behavior analysis has many applications, such as developing training procedures that build verbal skills in children with autism, helping teachers to work with students in inclusive settings, and preventing delinquency. Behavior analysis has been applied to a great variety of problems such as couples therapy, individual behavior therapy, behavioral consultation, and addictions treatment.
