Abstract: Dr. Ward sits down with Angela Cathey to discuss the origins and evolution of the metacontingency. They discuss its origins in the 1980s as a bridge to cultural anthropology, its reconceptualization in 2004 by Sigrid Glenn, and its further refinements by Houmanfar and colleagues in later years. This conversation walks through the basic elements of the metacontingency, how they differ from the macrocontingency, and discuss applications to complex behavioral phenomena in organizations and larger society.
- Participants will be able to define an interlocked behavioral contingency.
- Participants will be able to define a macrocontingency and describe how it differs from the metacontingency.
