An Ethical Obligation to be Empirical: Our Philosophy of Life, Our Perspective on Treatment, and the Driving Force Behind Our Work.

Join us for this workshop that is part of our intermediate to advanced-level workshop series for human services and behavioral healthcare professionals working in clinical, educational, medical, and rehabilitation settings.

Instructors: Thomas Zane, Ph.D., BCBA-D

Description: Behavior analysis is rooted in the foundations of a natural science approach towards a study of behavior, a search for functional relations. For behavior analysts, a scientific approach towards behavior is our worldview. The attitudes and characteristics of science influence the way behavior analysts think about and treat behavior. This scientific mindset is distinctly different from other ways of thinking about why behavior happens, such as the medical model or psychoanalytic perspectives. Indeed, the ethical code for behavior analysts frequently cites an obligation for behavior analysts to adhere to the methods of science and scientifically supported treatments in the work that we do as behavior analysts. For those of us who label ourselves as behaviorists or behavior analysts, our commitment to science is paramount and requires fealty to that worldview and that worldview alone.
