Provides an overview of the principles of behaviour analysis, and an opportunity for students to explore their application in their own area(s) of practice interest. The conceptual bases of behaviour analysis are described, as well as procedure for their implementation and evaluation. Examples of successful implementation in a wide range of environments at individual, organisational, and cultural levels are provided. Students will engage in deeper research by considering how behaviour analytic techniques could be employed to solve a specified problem in an area of their own interest. A discussion of the philosophical and ethical questions which underpin the use of behaviour change principles will also be provided.

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||describe the principles underlying applied behaviour analysis|
|2||give examples of translational research where the experimental analysis of behaviour has been applied|
|3||monitor and implement changes to their own behaviour using behavioural principles|
|4||plan an effective social change program based on behavioural principles, and illustrate how it would be evaluated|
