NEW ADDITION! Behaving Well
Behaving Well: Strategies for Celebrating Life in the Face of IllnessBy Edmund J. FantinoThis is a remarkable personal account written by one of America's leading experts on human behavior. In telling his story of dealing with advanced prostate cancer, Edmund Fantino candidly reveals the specific aspects of the disease while conveying a larger lesson. The details of coping with a grim diagnosis and the management of treatment form the core of this book, and are in themselves of great value, but the essence of this narrative is larger than one man's personal discoveries about a terrifying disease. The specific lesson is how he managed one of life's most distressing events while still managing to live his life. The larger lesson is a universal blueprint for building constructive behaviors that enable us to live our lives to the fullest.

Sale - 50% reduction!A New Learning Environment
A New Learning Environmentby Harold L. Cohen & James Filipczak From the Foreword:A New Learning Environment describes a different kind of social environment in a training school. It reports an experiment in 'contingency management' under which students were given positive reasons for behaving well with respect to each other and for studying and learning. It was not easy to construct such an environment. Indeed the practical problems were often staggering. But solutions were found, in part with the help of the art which springs from a humane concern for people and in part through the application of a technology derived from a science of behavior. The result- the CASE project at the National Training School for Boys - may well take its place as a landmark in penal reform.  B. F. Skinner From the Authors' Preface:By including the systems and programs used throughout the project, with specific examples, we hope to encourage the reader to examine his own existing educational system in the light of specified behavioral objectives and measurement. We are convinced that the motivationally oriented environment would be of value not only to rehabilitation institutions (penal and mental) but also to the educational and psychological professions. Strong indications that the principles employed in CASE II could be effective in the public school system are found in the increases by as much as four grade levels - in academic skills as measured by nationally standardized tests, in positive attitudinal changes in the students, and in IQ as much as 27 points.

Sale - 50% reduction!Religion and Human Behavior
Religion and Human BehaviorBy William N. SchoenfeldSchoenfeld wonders why scientific Psychology has for so long ignored religious behavior when billions of people through the ages have come to practice some form of religion. To stimulate discussion, he abstracts features that are common to all religions, describes the behavior we must observe in order to identify those features, and explores principles that underlie the genesis and continuance of that behavior.From what behavioral properties are key religious concepts drawn? What makes a given religious dogma believable by an ordinary man? What makes the utterances of one man, say a religion's founder, attractive to a potential convert? What makes one religion viable in the behavioral repertory of people, and therefore 'successful,' while another religion is not?There is no definitive reason why, when religious behavior is studied as natural phenomena, the results of a scientific analysis should not illuminate, and even strengthen, the conclusions of religion about behavior. - William N. Schoenfeld Format: Paperback Pages: 205 Author: Schoenfeld, William N. Publisher: Authors Cooperative, Inc. ISBN-10: 0962331155 Language: English

NEW! General Behaviorology: The Natural Science of Human Behavior
This book comprehensively presents the principles and practices of the natural science of behaviorology including its answers to some of humankind’s essential but long–enduring questions. In a future behaviorology department, a beginning student might buy this book, and it would serve as the main textbook for that student's next several courses. However, the most important role for this book is not as a textbook (although it is constructed to facilitate such usage). The main role for this work is to convince people that such departments should exist in the first place and to install them among the natural sciences. With 30 chapters (about 1,600 pages), this is the first thorough and systematic science book of behaviorology. While older, papercover versions combined the science content with a full set of instructional supplements, this hardcover edition emphasizes the science content by moving most of the instructional supplements to a separate volume. This book is constructed in the form of a science textbook for study, general reading, and reference. This book is written primarily for members of the broadly construed natural science community, and students thereof. It introduces a new basic discipline that broadens the reach of natural philosophy and science. The perspective of this book will be most appreciated by persons whose professional behavior, in general, already respects the postulates of naturalism.More information on the book, including chapter excerpts, a table of contents, and other book documentation can be found at www.behaviorology.org.

Applications of Behavior Analysisto Prevent Injuries fromVehicle Crashes
Applications of Behavior Analysis to Prevent Injuries from Vehicle Crashesby E. Scott Geller Americans gather around more than 125 grave sites every day to mourn the losses of loved ones killed in a traffic crash. Each year the disabling injuries from vehicle wrecks number in the millions. Alcohol consumption (a behavioral excess) and inconsistent safety-belt use (a behavioral deficit) contribute substantially to injuries and fatalities from vehicle crashes. Politicians, corporate leaders, employee groups, health and medical professionals, educators, media writers and producers, grass roots agencies, civic and service clubs, and family members urgently need to mount a comprehensive nationwide attack on these behavioral excesses and deficits. This monograph reviews the role of applied behavior analysis in efforts to reduce alcohol-impaired driving and motivate the use of vehicle safety belts, thus preventing injuries and deaths from vehicle crashes.

Eden maintains a continuum of educational, residential, and employment programs to provide the seamless, permanent support network that people with autism and their families often require. With numerous examples and case histories, Autism through the Lifespan presents an in-depth model for helping children and adults with autism that will be of interest to professionals and parents alike.

Behavior Analysis Forms for Clinical InterventionVolume 1
Behavior Analysis Forms for Clinical Intervention, Volume 1, by Joseph R. CautelaThe purpose of behavioral assessment for clinical treatment is to determine target behaviors, discover the antecedents and consequences controlling those behaviors, and monitor the effects of manipulating the controlling elements. One of the most significant sources of information for behavioral assessment can be self-observation and self-recording by the client. Self-report forms have many benefits: they save time; completion of the forms may be done outside the therapeutic session; comparisons of responses to the questionnaires or forms can be made at various stages of treatment; a questionnaire can act as a discriminative stimulus for the client in observing his or her own behaviors. Most of the forms in these volumes are self-report forms; in addition, there are recording forms and therapy guidelines for both therapist and client. Volume 1 includes four types of forms: General Forms (identification of maladaptive behaviors), Process Forms (target behaviors, motivation, treatment plan), Techniques Forms (therapeutic strategies), and Specific Forms (provide specific information on target behaviors). Permission to copy forms included. ISBN 0-87822-259-6 (1990) 225 p.
