What is Clinical Behavior Analysis?
As a multi-specialty group, we always represent behavior analysis as a distinct scientific entity separate from all others. The scientific definition of Clinical Behavior Analysis is actually a sub-discipline within Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) that represents a movement in behavior therapy away from cognitivism and back toward radical behaviorism and other forms of behaviorism, in particular, functional analysis (operants) and behavioral models of verbal behavior. As a quality provider of behavior analysis & therapy services, we represent a philosophy which is squarely within the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) framework of behavior therapy based on dimensions of Clinical Behavior Analysis, formed to distinguish itself within behavior analysis and across all other behavioral sciences.
In most talk therapies, the therapist has no control over the client’s daily life or contingencies outside the treatment session. The fundamental theoretical issue facing the behavior analyst is,”How can the talking that goes on during the session help the client with problems that occur outside the session in the client’s daily life?”A historical analysis and the application of verbal behavior principles are used to answer the question and form the basis of clinical behavior analysis (CBA).
The implications of CBA range from providing a theoretical base for behavioral-psychotherapy to suggesting new forms of behavior disorder treatments.
