Business Meeting #152
Behavioral Development Special Interest Group
Monday, May 30, 2016
7:00 AM–7:50 AM
Alpine, Swissotel
Chair: Per Holth (Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences)
Presenting Authors:

The SIG promotes behavior analytic empirical and conceptual analyses of issues related to behavioral development, and it encourages examination of how methodological and theoretical positions outside behavior analysis approach these issues empirically and conceptually. These kinds of analyses have often dealt with complex kinds of behavior such as stimulus equivalence, relational frames, language, and problem solving, as well as normal and problematic feeding behaviors and social interactions, and with historical bases of behaviorism and behavior analysis as basic science and applied practice. The Business Meeting will review activities over the last year and discuss plans for the next.
