“The second edition of this handbook represents a monumental effort to capture the breadth and depth of behavior analysis, from the history and philosophy of the field to cutting-edge research on staff training, function-based procedures for treating problem behaviors, and advances in telehealth. Of particular value are chapters on the treatment of drug addiction, pediatric feeding disorders, and behavioral gerontology. The contributors are a virtual 'who’s who' in the field who bring the reader up to date on every important topic; their voices come through clearly in each chapter. This comprehensive handbook is an ideal text for a graduate course in ABA and an invaluable reference for practitioners and students.”

—Jon S. Bailey, PhD, BCBA-D, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Florida State University


“A very impressive work that will benefit not only professionals and students in ABA, but also people with more basic and translational behavioral science interests. The contributors comprise a wide range of senior, mid-career, and junior leaders in their respective areas of expertise. Whatever their primary emphases, all behavior analysts should have ready access to the information in this second edition.”

—William J. McIlvane, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, University of Massachusetts Medical School


“Highly readable, well organized, and well researched, this is the foundational text for graduate training programs. Like the first edition, the exceptional second edition integrates theory, basic research, and applied work, which is essential to establish the skill sets needed by the next generation of ABA practitioners. The Handbook also serves as an invaluable resource for current researchers, clinicians, and academicians. The high-level expertise of the contributors is reflected in the thoroughness with which each topic is treated.”

—Jane S. Howard, PhD, BCBA-D, Department of Psychology and Child Development (Emeritus), California State University, Stanislaus; Chief Executive Officer, Therapeutic Pathways


“The second edition of this handbook builds nicely on the excellent first edition, which I have turned to frequently over the years. New chapters cover the quantitative analysis of behavior, special populations and targets, and more. Chapters on basic behavioral principles and concepts strike the optimal balance in terms of their depth and translatability to applied work. Chapters on methodology, behavior change technologies, and professional issues also will be of great value to practitioners. The volume illustrates ABA approaches across multiple contexts, including autism, behavioral pediatrics, education, and others. This is a 'must-have,' 'must-read' handbook that will continue to be a great resource for applied researchers, clinicians, and students of behavior analysis.”

—Louis Hagopian, PhD, BCBA-D, Program Director, Neurobehavioral Unit, Kennedy Krieger Institute; Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
