Behavior analysis is the science of the causes of behavior. In applied behavior analysis, this science is applied to significant problems of human behavior, typically at the level of the individual rather than of the group.
The scope of Human Services Psychology - Applied Behavior Analysis program at University of Maryland Baltimore County is wide-ranging, including work in developmental disabilities, in behavioral medicine, education, and organizations, to mention just a few applications.
Mastery of applied behavior analysis calls for competence in basic psychology, in the detailed knowledge base of behavior analysis, in measurement techniques for evaluating existing behavior and for designing treatment programs for individuals and in the various skills essential to delivering services and maintaining their effectiveness.
