Bio-Psycho-Social Aspects Of ABA

Students will examine the biological, psychological and social influences on behaviour using an Applied Behaviour Analytic (ABA) perspective. Students will learn to view behaviour from a holistic perspective, considering all the factors that influence behaviour. Topics including pharmacological interventions, cognitive strengths and deficits, health and wellness issues, quality of life and social factors will be examined. Behaviour analytic methods for assessing the ongoing influence of bio-psycho-social factors will be explored, as well as the influence these factors have on multimodal treatment interventions.
