Abstract: This book was written in part to help simplify the challenges we as professionals and parents face today. When dealing with persons with disabilities we have trouble predicting what outcome we will receive. All theories and analysis in this book are written on the basis of a comprehensive study of persons with disabilities. This paper is a key in the knowledge and understanding in human behavior and how it evolves to reach inside a person of diminished mental capabilities.
Cultural Biases and Relational Responding
Domain: Experimental Analysis
BRIAN J. COWLEY (Park University), Dennis D. Kerkman (Park University), Eileen Di Stasio-Clark (Park University)
Abstract: It has been demonstrated that participants will show their bias towards a culture by where they place the latitude and longitude of selected cities. This method has been compared to Implicit Attitude Tests and has been referred to as Mental Maps. The purpose of this analysis will be to compare the methodologies and concepts of this line of investigation with relational responding. Data will be presented that show how such relational responding correlates with cultural differences and similarities. This analysis will identify which families of relational frames are interacting.
