UPABA is proud to be hosting Dr. Ryan Speelman, BCBA presenting Philosophical and Conceptual Foundations in Gambling Research on Friday, March 19, 2021 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.
Abstract: This talk will outline foundational components of the 5th edition task list and correspondence to gambling research, including specific exemplars. While gambling treatment/research is an uncommon career avenue for certified practitioners, an understanding of how this research shares philosophical underpinnings and procedures with more common job duties will provide attendees with a broader understanding of these applications. Outlining these commonalities will help practitioners generalize/apply experimentally verified learning principles across clientele, contexts, and presenting problems.
Learning Objectives: At the completion of this event, participants will be able to use radical behaviorism as a philosophical orientation of science to describe/analyze behavior across a multitude of settings and use gambling literature to provide examples for each of the “concepts and principles” listed under section 1B of the BACB’s 5th edition task list.
