circa 1952 Applied Behavioral Analysis by George Czar & Georgina Diaz Electroshock Therapy Johnny's Boogie Eating Tally Before Intervention: Intervention Hypothesis: 1. We give Johnny a score card to wipe his boogies on.
2. Five "points" fills the card. When card is "discarded" in the trashcan, a non-edible reward is given.
3. Over time, the card is replaced with a tissue.
4. Incrementally, he is brought to blow his nose and discard the boogies properly. How to make Johnny stop eating his boogies... Apps! Is it tasty? If yes, can I make it taste bad, somehow? If no, why else
might he be
eating his boogies? Think about it... Is he just
hungry? Can I feed him an alternative
Salty, Crunchy Snack? There's gotta be
an App for that, right? Exorcism Shame Applied Behavioral Analysis Torture Technological – Procedures must be precisely described and carried out.
Includes stimuli, contingencies, and schedules of reinforcement.

Conceptual Systems – Relevant to principles which are shared across behaviors, making systematic expansion possible.

Must be Effective and have Generality.
Change is practical, sustained over time and across domains.

(Baer, Wolf, & Risley, 1968) Other Criteria Applied – More than theoretical, important for real life application.

Behavioral – Must be observable, generally physical events, which are measurable.

Analytic – Must believably and reliably change the behavior in question. Researcher can reproduce result.
