About the Course:

Behavior analysis has the technology to solve important human problems such as overpopulation, nuclear war, pollution, equal rights, and equal opportunities. However, the development of such technology at a cultural level raises ethical questions yet to be answered. This article examines how B.F. Skinner addressed many of these issues throughout his career and explores how many of these issues are still relevant today.

About the BDS Journal Club Series: This is an interactive live online journal club. Participants will receive 3.0 Type II BACB® CEUs for completing all journal club activities. Participants are required to have read the entire article before attending the scheduled one-hour live online journal club discussion. Journal club discussions will include article details, article results, and implications for practice. Active participation is required. CE credit will be provided after completing an article content quiz on the BDS learning platform.
