           Prevention of the Word Gap

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Children learn language through the interactions they have with their parents/caregivers beginning at birth. Hart and Risley (1995) discovered an inequity in the home language input children received from parents/caregivers. Children reared in low-income families received less input (conversations, turns) from parents than did children reared in more advantaged families. Less language input was linked to a disparity in children’s vocabulary learning by age 3. The long-term result of this social determinant of early language/literacy learning is a life trajectory of poor educational, economic, and health attainment for many children in families with limited resources, at vast cost to individuals, communities, and the nation. What is needed is an approach to word-gap prevention that is capable of achieving positive individual, community, and population outcomes. Translating research into practice, we developed the Bridging the Word Gap Community Action Planning Guide (BWG-CAPG) using a combined behavior-analytic, community psychology, and public health framework for this purpose (Greenwood et al., 2017). We also developed a progress-monitoring measure, the online BWG Community Check Box Evaluation System, to provide feedback on a community’s actions and progress in implementing their plan. Results from an initial pilot investigation within and across three community sectors in a large urban city were promising. BWG Community Check Box results indicated a number of desired outcomes: (a) capacity development and mobilization, (b) community implementation actions, and (c) community changes in practices, programs, and policies. Implications are discussed.

  • Music as a Cultural Inheritance System: A Contextual-Behavioral Model of
           Symbolism, Meaning, and the Value of Music

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Music is a pervasive cultural practice that has been present in ancient civilizations through to the present, yet its evolutionary significance has not been unequivocally determined. One position suggests that evolution favored music-related behaviors because such behaviors were linked to sexual selection and reproduction. A more recent perspective that is consistent with today’s evolutionary science framework suggests that music is a cultural-level adaptation because of the survival advantages it affords members of a community. This article explores the selection mechanisms responsible for the retention and transmission of music-related behaviors. Music is proposed to be a complex symbolic inheritance system, or an advanced form of relational responding, that required cooperation to develop and further facilitated unity and affinity among groups of people. The aggregate product of this cooperation is then assigned meaning and selected by the contingencies of a particular sociocultural community. Music may thus occasion similar values-consistent behavior (i.e., within the values system of the community) across groups of people. Implications for the role of music in promoting the well-being of a culture are examined.

  • Research and Training in Culturo-Behavior Science

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Culturo-behavior science (CBS) is a developing area and recently formalized specialization in behavior science that brings together principles and techniques from behavior analysis (e.g., Skinner, 1953), behavioral systems analysis (e.g., Brethower, 2008), cultural analysis (e.g., Glenn et al., 2016), and cultural systems analysis (Mattaini, 2020). Culturo-behavior scientists typically work within a selectionist and/or (ecological) systems perspective to advance our understanding of how cultural phenomena develop and change over time and how more effective cultures and systems can be designed (Cihon & Mattaini, 2019, 2020b). The purpose of the current article is to describe CBS, to introduce the recently formulated Association for Behavior Analysis International verified course sequence (VCS) and certificate program in CBS, and to present different pathways to training in CBS. We do this through the presentation of examples from the literature and from four universities that have adopted the CBS VCS and certificate program that are illustrative of how different programs may approach research and training in CBS.

  • Navigating Cultural Differences During the Delivery of Behavior Analysis
           Services in Austria

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Behavior analysts working in countries with a higher rate of migration will inevitably serve families of diverse cultural backgrounds. This is the case in Austria, a country in Eastern Europe with great diversity among its inhabitants. It is very likely that the behavior analyst working in Austria will face potential cultural differences due to the presence of cultural diversity. Although technical competency is important to ensure clients will receive the most effective interventions, it is also essential that providers are aware of and responsive to the cultural context to guarantee that clients’ preferences, based on their values, are incorporated into the intervention plan and its strategies. Barriers to culturally sensitive services might involve the differences between the values and cultural practices of families, as well age differences, and the service provider. To overcome these barriers, the behavior analyst should evaluate their own culture incompetency while practicing cultural humility. This could involve the development of cultural awareness, the acquisition of cultural knowledge, and the emission of culturally responsive behaviors. In this article, we will present an overview of some potential cultural barriers and suggest practical steps to overcome cultural differences during service delivery.

  • “In” or “Out”' An Analysis of the Use of Augmentals in U.S.
           Presidential Speeches on the Paris Climate Agreement

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Augmentals, as a type of verbal rule, have been used in political speeches either for establishing beneficial cultural values for the populace (Leigland, 2005) or for publicizing political points of view to exert control on public opinion through propaganda (Rakos, 1993). The current study conducted a functional content analysis on two presidential speeches about climate change and global warming regarding whether the United States should enter or exit the Paris Climate Agreement. The purposes of the study were to (a) examine the effects of two types of augmentals (reinforcer-establishing augmentals and punisher-establishing augmentals) on behavior change in the populace, (b) explore the effects of the types of relational frames that formed augmentals, and (c) provide guidance to the public on discriminating propaganda in media sources. The results showed different patterns in the use of augmentals in Donald Trump’s speech, which attempted to persuade the populace to support exiting the agreement, compared to Barack Obama’s speech, which attempted to persuade the populace to support entering the agreement. Several implications of the study are discussed.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Recent events have highlighted the need for behavior analysis to address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in service provision and in higher education. There has been a call to action issued, noting the need for cultural humility and cultural responsiveness. An opportunity exists within training programs to ensure that students of behavior analysis are instructed in ways that promote cultural responsiveness and that equip them to serve diverse populations. Additionally, more needs to be done to engineer environments where students of behavior analysis are treated with respect and compassion, and to ensure that educational environments promote the comfort and success of all students. This article outlines the initiatives of an applied behavior analysis department to gather information about DEI on the local level, identify goals, implement change, and evaluate progress toward these goals.

           Undergraduate Brazilian Students

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Gender stereotypes affect both women and men from childhood. Whereas men may be more often associated with STEM careers, women tend to be associated with nurturing and caring careers. The present research used an explicit scale and the Implicit Relational Assessment Procedure to investigate how gender–career relational patterns could vary for Brazilian college students according to their gender and career. Both instruments included the names of careers stereotypically regarded as “male” or “female” and words indicating gender. Participants were divided into four groups (men and women in STEM and the humanities). A significant pro-male–STEM bias emerged for all groups, except the STEM-female group, the only group to show a significant pro-female-STEM bias (p < .05) and a significant difference from the other three groups. A significant implicit pro-men–male career bias was mostly more substantial among male students. In the explicit scales, participants tended to show a more neutral evaluation (not classifying careers as “male” or “female”). Correlations were found between explicit evaluations for male careers and the implicit trial type “women–male careers,” indicating that the more a career was explicitly evaluated as male, the more easily it was related with “women” as false at the implicit level.

  • A Reflection on Community Research and Action as an Evolving Practice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Community research and action is an evolving field of practice with multiple influences. Its varied ways of knowing and doing reflect recombined elements from different disciplines, including behavioral science, community psychology, public health, and community development. This article offers a personal reflection based on my evolving practice over nearly 50 years. The focus is on three types of influence: (a) engaging with different communities, fields, and networks (e.g., discovering shared values, diverse methods); (b) building methods and capabilities for the work (e.g., methods for participatory research, tools for capacity building); and (c) partnering for collaborative research and action, locally and globally. This story highlights the nature of the field’s evolution as an increasing variation in methods. Our evolving practice of community research and action—individually and collectively—emerges from the recombination of ideas and methods discovered through engagement in a wide variety of contexts.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: To many researchers interested in connecting their research to policy decisions and advocating for increased federal investment in science, the federal policy-making and appropriations processes may feel distant and difficult to navigate. The goal of this article is to provide an overview of the federal budget and legislative processes, as well as an understanding of the congressional offices and committees managing these processes, with information about how policymakers incorporate evidence into their work and the challenges they face. The article describes the policy-making ecosystem, in particular the role of the advocacy community. We identify specific points in the process that provide opportunities for researchers and advocates to weigh in on important issues such as federal funding for science and the scientific workforce. Case studies are provided demonstrating two advocacy successes. Finally, we provide a list of relevant resources.

  • Emerging Culturo-Behavior Science Contributions to Global Justice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Does contemporary behavior science have the capacity to meaningfully contribute to global justice, and if so, do culturo-behavior scientists carry a moral obligation to do so' These are challenging questions for a science that began in the laboratory and whose applications have primarily targeted microsystemic interventions. Although justice and injustice can only be enacted through behavior, effective action supporting social (including economic) and ecological (including environmental) justice will require collective action focused on shifts in cultural practices. As discussed in this article, contemporary culturo-behavior science (CBS) has begun shifting disciplinary attention toward potential contributions to critical dimensions of global justice. A key contemporary challenge for CBS in these areas is the development of meaningful conceptual and experimental approaches that can simultaneously advance rigorous science (in most cases, necessarily across disciplines) and offer meaningful utility in public sectors.

  • The Actively Caring for People Movement: A Synergistic Integration of
           Behaviorism, Humanism, and Positive Psychology

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article reviews the Actively Caring for People (AC4P) Movement, initiated in 2007 to increase occurrences of interpersonal acts of kindness worldwide. Resources to support the AC4P Movement, including research-based training manuals and AC4P wristbands for adults and children, are available at www.ac4p.org. This prosocial movement incorporates principles from three diverse disciplines of psychological science: humanism, positive psychology, and applied behavioral science (ABS). With this article, I explicate seven evidence-based “life lessons” that operationalize select principles from humanism and ABS, and rejuvenate a seemingly forgotten applied psychology concept from the 1970s: humanistic behaviorism. Whenever and wherever practiced, these life lessons benefit human well-being and quality of life. Certain life lessons reflect the essence of empowerment and self-motivation and thereby illustrate critical distinctions between management and leadership. Next, I exemplify synergistic connections between positive psychology and ABS, highlighting practical techniques for promoting and supporting human welfare and personal happiness. Previous and ongoing research by my students and colleagues demonstrates how ABS can apply findings from positive psychology to promote subjective well-being on a large scale. The need for worldwide application and dissemination of practical procedures to increase occurrences of AC4P behavior is strikingly obvious, perhaps more so now than ever before in our contentious, fractured, and polarized society. This article explores evidence-based strategies for increasing occurrences of AC4P behavior in various settings, with the mission to cultivate an AC4P culture in families, educational settings, corporations, and communities throughout the world.

  • Brazilian Government Strategies to Protect Women

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 2018, 22,000,000 Brazilian women experienced some type of violence (either physical or psychological), and 42% of these episodes occurred in the domestic environment. Therefore, government strategies have been developed to solve this problem. This study aimed to (a) carry out a survey of Brazilian government strategies for the protection of women after the creation of the Maria da Penha Law (Law No. 11.340, 2006) and (b) discuss these strategies from the concept of cultural design. Sixteen laws, five decrees, and two ordinances were found and analyzed. In a general way, the analysis suggests that they are not effective cultural plans because most do not show long-term results, and some of the laws that typify crimes and those that relate to the aggressor’s behavior do not specify the target behaviors, so there is no explicit contingency. Despite this, such strategies are relevant, as they end up providing the protective context for women from a social, legal, and political point of view. Finally, it is expected that the discussions raised in the present work can help prepare interventions that favor socially beneficial cultural practices.

      Abstract: In this article, a history of behavior-analytic studies on culture in Brazil is presented, beginning with the pioneering work of Fred S. Keller and following its development through different phases, starting with PhD dissertations supervised by Carolina Bori in the 1970s at the University of São Paulo, and later continuing with the work by João Cláudio Todorov at the Universidade de Brasília and by Maria Amalia Andery at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo in the 1990s. We describe how meetings— from Think Tank 1 (2003) in São Paulo to Think Tank 6 (2019) in Brasília and other symposia (at national events) —were important in bringing together national and international investigators, who contributed to the development of the area called behavioral analysis of culture (BAC) in Brazil. We also highlight how the institutionalization of BAC in Brazil occurred through the establishment of lines of research in graduate programs, and how the graduate students of these programs accepted positions at other universities, spreading BAC throughout the country and helping to increase interest in the subject. In addition, we describe other relevant facts such as special issues of scientific journals and books published in Portuguese. Finally, we point out some current directions and future perspectives such as the development of courses verified by the Association for Behavior Analysis International for the certification of behavior analysts interested in culturo-behavior science.

  • Peace Building in Practice: Creating Shared Security at All Levels

      Abstract: Never before have the fates of individual communities and nations been so intertwined, exemplified by the COVID-19 pandemic. And never before have our safety and well-being depended so much on the safety and well-being of others. A new approach to thinking about safety and security is required: an approach where we commit to our mutual well-being and equitable access to resources. Shared security is a paradigm that promotes the safety and well-being of people throughout the world. It is the idea that shared problems require shared nonviolent solutions and that our interests are best served when we foster peaceful and just relationships together. The vision of shared security is very simply the idea that “my peace is your peace”—the understanding that peace and security are indivisible. It is a peace-building paradigm and belief that we can find mutual solutions to societal problems without weapons or violence. A shared-security approach invests seriously in peace building instead of war building in the name of security. It imagines a world where leaders are mobilized not to build walls, separate families, and bomb targets but to work together to prioritize peace building, support people-powered movements, and invest in early interventions that address the root causes of conflict long before violence and discrimination erupt, dividing civil society and fracturing the institutions that enable cooperation and democracy.
