“An exceptional work from leaders in the field of behavior analysis across both basic and applied contexts. This book is an invaluable resource for students, researchers, and those in clinical practice. The distillation of complex research into understandable terms is truly an accomplishment. I strongly trust this book will be a cornerstone in advancing the field of behavior analysis.”

—Valerie M. Volkert, PhD, BCBA-D, Department of Pediatrics, Emory University School of Medicine; Multidisciplinary Feeding Program, Marcus Autism Center

“Roane and colleagues have gathered accomplished experts in basic, applied, and translational behavior analysis to present this comprehensive, accessible work. This volume will serve not only as a foundational reference for students of the science of behavior, but also as a launchpad for innovative scholarship. Each chapter is written by researchers and practitioners, whose complementary skill sets coalesce to offer important contributions to the field. In the classroom, the text will introduce students to the seminal works in behavior analysis while providing extended explanations and clinical illustrations.”

—John C. Borrero, PhD, BCBA-D, LBA, Department of Psychology, University of Maryland, Baltimore County

“This essential book demonstrates how a science must operate simultaneously at many levels of analysis in order to create persuasive theory and impactful applications. It provides an integrative perspective that will be helpful to everyone whose mission it is to understand and improve behavior, from basic scientists to applied researchers and field practitioners.”

—Thomas S. Critchfield, PhD, Department of Psychology, Illinois State University

“An excellent resource for applied behavior analysts, psychologists, or other clinicians who seek to broaden their understanding of how behavioral principles influence clinical applications. The chapters are comprehensive and cover a wide array of topics, including experimental methods, reinforcement, respondent conditioning, verbal behavior, punishment, and behavioral pharmacology. Each chapter presents thorough descriptions of basic concepts along with laboratory examples, coupled with sound practical applications based on classical and current research. The contributors do an admirable job of explaining challenging technical concepts in an accessible way.”

—Matt Tincani, PhD, BCBA-D, Department of Teaching and Learning, Temple University

“This book is a 'must read' for anyone interested in translational research. It is full of many new insights from a world-class team of editors and contributors.”

—Timothy A. Shahan, PhD, Department of Psychology, Utah State University
