Behavior analysis is rooted in the behaviorist tradition and utilizes learning principles to bring about behavior change. Some branches of psychology strive to understand underlying cognitions, but behavioral psychology is not concerned with mentalistic causes of behavior and instead focuses on the behavior itself. Behavior analysis has robust practical applications in mental health treatment and organizational psychology, particularly when focused on helping children and adults learn new behaviors or reduce problem behaviors. Behavior analysis is often used to build abilities in children and adults with disabilities, increase academic skills in school settings, and enhance employee performance. Related Topics:
