Virtually rewritten so as to make it even more appropriate for use in applied behavior analysis masters programs, this third edition provides among the most comprehensive treatment of single case and within-subject design and other behavioral research methods.
Now even more accessible, this edition features many more pedagogical tools to further reinforce learning. Unlike "cookbook" approach texts, authors Johnston and Pennypacker focus on the strategic and tactical options available to an investigator. Written to meet the certification requirements established by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board for courses in behavioral research methods, the new edition features many more clinical applications, interventions, and examples. Accompanied by an on-line Instructor''s Resource material available on a website.
With a focus on single subject and within-subject design, this book is intended for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in behavioral analysis, behavioral research methods, experimental evaluation of behavior in applied settings, or single subject design taught in departments of psychology, especially clinical and counseling psychology, social work, education, developmental disabilities, and other social and health sciences that deal with human services areas. Written for students without a background in behavioral research, the book will also appeal to practitioners who wish to brush up on their behavioral research analytic skills.
