Behavior Analysis in the Mainstream
Date: September 20, 2013
Speaker: Dr. Patrick C. Friman, Ph.D., ABPP
Location: Arlington Heights, IL
Behavior analysis is a generic science; Skinner's vision was for it to become a mainstream science relevant to most, if not all, human concerns, both major and minor. Clearly, his vision has not been realized, despite the fact that behavioral analysis has produced numerous extraordinary findings in both basic and applied domains.
Those outside the field of behavior analysis continue to view its general relevance to basics of applied knowledge of human affairs as very limited. Among the many plausible reasons for this state of affairs is that its best known basic science findings have been obtained from studying rats and pigeons and its best known applied science findings from studying persons with developmental disabilities. But there are multiple other possibilities Dr. Patrick C. Friman received his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas. He is the current Director of the Boys Town Center for Behavioral Health and a Clinical Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Nebraska School of Medicine.
He is the former Editor of the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and former President of the Association for Behavior Analysis International. He is on the editorial boards of six peer reviewed journals and has published more than 180 scientific articles and chapters of three books. Currently, he writes a regular column on child behavior for the Family Spectrum Magazine.
The primary focus of Dr. Friman‚s scientific and clinical work is in the area of Behavioral Pediatrics and Behavioral Medicine. His work in behavioral pediatrics has concentrated on the gap between primary medical care for children on one side, and referral-based clinical child psychological and psychiatric care on the other. A secondary focus is on adolescent behavior and development.
Dr. Friman also specializes in consultation regarding work-place issues such as motivation, dealing with difficult people, change, and pathways to success.
