Behavior Analysis, Cultural Analysis, and International Relations (1 CEU)


Event Expired


Speaker: Todd A. Ward, PhD, BCBA-D (President, bSci21Media, LLC)

Date:  Feb. 8th, 1-2pm Central Standard Time

1 Type II CEU

Abstract: If behavior analysts want to play on the global stage and affect international relations, they have to tackle pressing global issues. Behavior analysts typically call this “cultural analysis”, which has been at the heart of behavior analysis since its inception.  However, demand for clinical applications has steered training programs away from the analysis of worldly events.  In this presentation, I will give you a few behavior analytic tools to help you take the science of behavior to the largest global issues.  Specifically, I will introduce you to meta- and macrocontingencies, psychological vs. sociological levels of analysis, and Skinner’s analysis of cultural practices.  I will also provide a case study drawn from my own work, presented at the International Studies Association, on how behavior analysts can assess and intervene on maritime piracy in Somalia.

Learning Objectives:
1) Participants will be able to distinguish between psychological and sociological levels of analysis.
2) Participants will be able to define a cultural practice in behavior analytic terms.
3) Participants will be able to describe at least one factor maintaining the practice of maritime piracy.
