BEHVO 426 - Behavioral Assessment

Assessment is the cornerstone of behavior analysis. Whether working with people or animals, individually or in groups, addressing any given problem, the foundation of the behavior analysts work is rigorous assessment. This course introduces the methods of behavioral assessment, focusing on identifying hypotheses and testing the hypothesis to identify functional relations. The course also teaches students to plan effective clinical and educational interventions based on the results of multi-dimensional behavioral assessment that uses a continuum of assessment methods.Through this course, students will learn to conduct a functional behavioral assessment including planning, taking data, interpreting data, composing narrative reports, and establishing rapport with clients while determining how best to measure progress and develop goals. By the end of the course, students should be able to perform these processes with any client or any group of clients.This course will use behaviorally based pedagogical strategies, such as Say All Fast Minute Each Day Shuffle (SAFMEDS), interteaching, group activities, individual self paced modules, readings, literature reviews, guided notes, Socratic questioning, quizzes, exams, and a final project. Active student responding will be prioritized.

BEHVO 465 - Verbal Behavior

Skinner considered his 1957 book, "Verbal Behavior," to be his most important work. Skinner rejected cognitive explanations of language as the transmission of thoughts and ideas that start in our minds. Instead, he analyzed verbal behavior as behavior controlled by basic behavioral processes, including positive reinforcement and stimulus control. In this course, students read and analyze the concepts in "Verbal Behavior," such as the mand, tact, intraverbal, and autoclitic. The distinction between radical and methodological behaviorism is discussed, including a discussion of how behavior analysts treat private events and covert verbal behavior. Students read research on applications of verbal behavior to improving the communication of individuals with language delays. There is also an emphasis on practical applications of the analysis of verbal behavior. Products of this course include a teaching program based on verbal behavior and a paper extending ideas or research avenues in verbal behavior.

BUS 230 - Why We Buy

Why do we buy? This course is designed to examine consumer psychology and behavior in order to inform marketing decisions. Firms today are overwhelmingly adopting a customer focus, striving to better understand consumer behavior to be competitive. The consumer purchasing process serves as the foundation for the many decisions we make in the practice of marketing, from new product and brand development, to pricing strategy, to channels of distribution, to selection of advertising messages, and to how we manage our customer relationships. Therefore, marketing involves bringing emerging theories and research from the fields of anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, and neuroscience to bear on our understanding of consumer psychology and purchase behavior. In today's consumer culture, whether online or offline, what and how we consume is a central aspect of who we are, how we relate to others, and how we create meaning in contemporary life.

Knowing how to negotiate is one of the most useful skills you can learn in college. Whether for personal use - finalizing a lease, car purchase or job offer - or professionally on behalf of your organization, negotiation is a method to advance and protect outcomes that matter to you most. In this course we discuss and practice the techniques of negotiation using a mutual gains approach - exploring the "win-win". We will ground this focus in why we negotiate; how uncertainty, decision-making and people's bargaining styles set the grounds for conflict or resolution. Using role-playing, case analyses, and other experiential activities, the emphasis on the course is real-time practice in a supportive and skill building environment. Go from "here" to "there" in your abilities to resolve small differences before they escalate and to secure best value for your organization and yourself.
