Continuing Education Courses (CE's) are designed to provide instruction in a variety of areas of behavior analysis. CE's typically involve a video or podcast, some text to augment the presentation, a study guide, and interactive quizzes so you can determine whether you have mastered the material.

In order to access a CE please download any study guides and any text documents available for the unit, and read them for further directions concerning the particular unit you are completing. You will need to save and open them to be able to have them on the desktop while you watch the videos. Many people find that printing the downloads is helpful.

Then begin with the unit segments listed below. Each segment will consist of a video or podcast, quiz questions, feedback on the quiz, and opportunities to retake the quiz to demonstrate mastery. Start by watching the video or listening to the podcast for the first segment. When you are ready to take the quiz, click on the quiz button.

Once you take a quiz, click on the continue button to receive feedback. If you are satisfied with your performance or need to leave for the day, click on the submit button and the scores will be sent to your profile.  You can review where you are by going to your profile at any time, clicking on account settings, and then clicking on the continuing education tab.

If you wish to obtain BCBA CE credit you must meet our mastery criteria of 75% or better on each quiz for a course. Once you have done so, please submit an email to our webmaster (pavlik@behavior.org). She will check your work and if completed at mastery level, will award you CE credits. The Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies is an approved Type II provider of BACB CE's.

Course Description: John B. Watson was born in rural South Carolina in 1878. He held faculty positions at the University of Chicago and Johns Hopkins, delivered his behaviorist manifesto at Columbia University in 1913, carried out a controversial fear conditioning project with Little Albert B. in 1919-1920, but was obliged to resign from academia in 1920, owing to personal circumstances. He then became a successful executive in the advertising business. He was married twice, the first ending in divorce and the second with the death of his wife, Rosalie, in 1936. He died in 1958. B. F. Skinner never met Watson, although Skinner read many of Watson?s books and Watson influenced the development of Skinner?s behaviorism in many ways. One important difference between the two is that Watson recognized only control by antecedents, whereas Skinner recognized selection by consequences. Two common statements about Watson?s behaviorism are that it subscribed to methodological behaviorism and an extreme environmentalism. This presentation suggests that Watson?s behaviorism is more accurately described as espousing an anti-mentalism and a social activism.

This presentation was videoed at the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies 103 Annual Meeting of the Trustees.
