Applied behavioral analysis of societal problems: Population change, a case in point

Applied behavioral analysis of societal problems: Population change, a case in point Suggests that current approaches to societal problems, such as population change, have resulted in inadequate solutions and that various methodological and conceptual biases exist which limit problem solution alternatives. Applied behavior analysis approaches employ strategies which have been successful in effecting behavior change in educational, clinical, and institutional contexts and should be carefully considered in approaching population change problems. Interdisciplinary contributions are suggested that facilitate identification of relevant behaviors and selection of appropriate behavioral intervention strategies. Training programs for family planning trainers and workers are currently feasible and are felt to provide a potentially effective response to the individual family's needs.

Applied behavioral analysis of societal problems: Population change, a case in point

Abstract

Suggests that current approaches to societal problems, such as population change, have resulted in inadequate solutions and that various methodological and conceptual biases exist which limit problem solution alternatives. Applied behavior analysis approaches employ strategies which have been successful in effecting behavior change in educational, clinical, and institutional contexts and should be carefully considered in approaching population change problems. Interdisciplinary contributions are suggested that facilitate identification of relevant behaviors and selection of appropriate behavioral intervention strategies. Training programs for family planning trainers and workers are currently feasible and are felt to provide a potentially effective response to the individual family's needs. (54 ref)
