Introduction to Applied Behavior Analysis


In this course, students will learn the foundational principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Through a combination of lectures, demonstration videos, quizzes, and experiential learning activities, students will learn how to implement a variety of behavior analytic techniques with patients who have behavioral health needs. The course sequence follows the second edition of the Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) task list published by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB), with learning objectives across the following modules: Measurement, Assessment, Skill Acquisition, Behavior Reduction, Documentation and Reporting, and Professional Conduct/Scope of Practice. By completing this course, students will qualify to sit for the national RBT certification administered by the BACB; certificate-holders work in a wide range of behavioral health settings including schools, outpatient clinics, hospitals, and home-based settings. This course is fully online. Students enrolled in day classes at Washington University should review the policies of their home division on credit earned for online courses.
