About the Division

Among the APA divisions that advance psychology as a natural science, the Division of Behavior Analysis is perhaps unique in its emphasis on behavior as a subject matter in its own right. This analysis is pursued in three relatively distinct ways:

bullet

In the experimental analysis of behavior per se, which undertakes research on basic behavioral processes in a temporal and biological context.

bullet

In applied behavior analysis, which extends these processes and research procedures to behavior in a social context, especially to behavior-environment relationships of relatively immediate individual , social, and cultural importance.

bullet

In the conceptual analysis of behavior, which addresses historical, philosophical, theoretical, and methodological issues.
