About

The Behaviour Analysis and Therapy programme offered by the University of South Wales equips students with skills in behaviour analysis and therapy relevant to a range of educational and clinical settings. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Behaviour analysts focus on understanding how a person’s interactions with the environment influence behaviour. 

They use this information to design effective interventions that will help people learn more appropriate behaviours, as well as reducing challenging behaviour.

The  Behaviour Analysis and Therapy  programme offered by the University of South Wales  provides a solid understanding of the scientific principles that underpin behaviour analysis, and the therapeutic techniques derived from those principles. 

You will be taught by a team of Board Certified Behaviour Analysts who are internationally-recognised for their research and clinical work in the field.

Careers

Professionals trained in behaviour analysis are in increasing demand in the UK, particularly those who are BACB-certified. Behaviour analysts are employed in a variety of contexts, including service providers for people with autism and/or learning disabilities, the NHS, schools, and residential treatment facilities for people with challenging behaviour. Some behaviour analysts also work as independent consultants in their areas of expertise.
