Behavior Analysis and Therapy


Heal, Nicole A.


Applied behavior analysis has a long history of success in showing therapeutic gains within human service settings. The need to train all types of staff in behavior analytic methods is crucial to the continuation of this tradition. Research has shown organizational behavior management (OBM) to be effective in teaching others to implement behavior analytic programs. However, OBM appears to be largely absent from human service settings. The present research paper reviews the literature in this area, examines trends, and makes suggestions for future research.
