While research has shown that functional analysis is effective, many behavior analysts have been slow to adopt it as a standard practice. This could be due to perceptions that the functional analysis process is lengthy, difficult and in some cases, dangerous. This course will address how brief functional analyses can be used to identify behavioral function safely and efficiently.
This course is designed to meet CE requirements as outlined by the BACB.
