The Merrill-Cazier Library is showcasing all of the 2012 Faculty Authors and their books in the Richard Schockmel USU Collections Room on the 2nd floor of the Library. We are proud of USU's faculty authors! This week we are highlighting:
Gregory Madden, Professor, Department of Psychology Madden, Gregory J., 2012. APA Handbook of Behavior Analysis (APA Handbooks in Psychology), (2 vols.). Dubuque, Washington, DC: American Psychological Association.
This handbook provides both overview and in-depth chapters spanning the breadth of behavior analysis. Volume II includes chapters illustrating how principles of behavior discovered in basic-science laboratories have provided insights on socially important human behavior ranging from the complex discriminations that underlie human language to disorders treated by clinical psychologists. Chapters are devoted to particular behavioral/developmental disorders (e.g., behavioral treatments of ADHD, autism) or to behavior of societal importance (e.g., effective college teaching, effective treatment of substance abuse), providing reviews of what works and where additional research is needed.
