This first course in a three-course sequence introduces the student to functional behavioral assessment processes and tools utilized by behaviorologists, behavior analysts, and behavior technologist in evaluating problematic animal behavior in preparation for constructing and implementing a contingency engineering plan to resolve the problem. It explores what functional behavioral assessment is and is not and describes common explanatory fictions and other barriers to effective assessment that are common in other approaches. It then proceeds all the way from the screening process before assessment begins through the functional interview stage of assessment.
