Applied Behavior Analysis

Fifty Case Studies in Home, School and Community Settings

Research | Books at Memorial

This textbook offers real-world case studies for using applied behavior analysis (ABA) to create, implement and appraise behavior intervention programs across a variety of client situations.

Authored by Dr. Kimberly Maich, associate professor, Faculty of Education, and Darren Levine and Carmen Hall, the book’s chapters are formatted for ease of use and retention and organized to focus on the core components of ABA: assessment, planning, implementation, evaluation and research/ethics.

Changing complex behaviors

Illustrative cases represent a diversity of problem behaviors, settings, social contexts and life stages, and includes questions about data collection, goal setting, communication with families, and other processes of effective ABA practice.

Together they emphasize not only the content knowledge involved in designing interventions, but also the interpersonal skills necessary for helping change complex challenging behaviors. These 50 case studies are suited to individual or team training; present guiding questions regarding ABA process and professional practice; feature charts, forms, templates and other practical tools; include links to behavior analyst certification board resources; and demonstrate the flexibility of ABA for use with children, adolescents, adults or seniors.

Applied Behavior Analysis: Fifty Case Studies in Home, School, and Community Settings is an essential text for graduate students, researchers and practitioners in child and school psychology, behavior analysis, learning and instruction, counselling and education. This singular volume models critical thinking and professional development in keeping with best practices and professional standards.
