Trends in applied behavior analysis

Abstract

A study by S. C. Hayes et al (1978) indicates that between 1968 and 1977 there has been a decline in research using analog behaviors or settings, an increase in simple reliability analysis, and decreased interest in conceptually oriented research. These data support S. M. Dietz's contention that applied psychology has become more technological and less scientific. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
