A plethora of research, focusing on areas of research such as neurobiology, ethology and other very important areas of studies may suggest that these have replaced behaviourist models. Was behaviourism “replaced” with new forms of investigation and what has been discovered? Learning Objectives The difference between prescriptive and descriptive areas of study. Learn how converging evidence increases confidence. The types of questions that can be asked in research and what they tell us. What we can learn from human treatment therapies such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) or other protocols. How are they tested and how do practicians know if something has been tested? How much behaviourism is presently taught? Has behaviourism become a relic or a given? Why is behaviourism still relevant? Looking at several research studies and where behaviourism is used to determine “higher” learning processes.
