Hometown: Glen Burnie, Maryland
Interests: The dissemination of findings from research on behavior and their implications.
Biography: I went to Towson University in Maryland with the idea of becoming a teacher. After teaching a couple of years I earned a master's in counseling at what is now the University of Northern Colorado. I enlisted in the Navy and did clinical work at Naval training centers; I was released in 1969 but never resigned my commission, so I may be the oldest living Naval Lieutenant. On leaving the Navy I went to Utah State University to earn a general-experimental Ph.D. with the idea of teaching in a college. In 1972 I stumbled onto an editorial opening at Psychology Today magazine and got the job. I was with the magazine for four years full time, and then became a freelance writer and editor devoted to disseminating information about the way that experience changes behavior. I wrote a text on the topic (Learning & Behavior, now in its 7th ed) and two others on its applications (First Course in Applied Behavior Analysis, and The Teacher's Craft). All three are aimed at students with little or no background in these topics.
Looking For: I am always interested in research on the natural science approach to behavior, including covert behavior (thoughts and feelings).
