The Division for the Experimental
Analysis of Behavior, among the APA divisions that advance psychology as a natural
science, is perhaps unique in its emphasis on behavior as a subject matter in its
own right. This analysis is pursued in three relatively distinct ways: In the
experimental analysis of behavior per se, which undertakes research on basic behavioral
processes in a temporal and biological context. In applied behavior analysis, which
extends these processes and research procedures to behavior in a social context,
especially to behavior-environment relationships of relatively immediate individual ,
social, and cultural importance. In the conceptual analysis of behavior, which
addresses historical, philosophical, theoretical, and methodological issues. The
Division's membership includes individuals with interests in areas as diverse as ethology
and psychopharmacology; developmental and social psychology; clinical psychology,
education, and social work; and the history, systems, and philosophy of psychology.
