Full course description

Credit: 2.5 Learning BACB CEs

Presenter: Henry "Hank" D. Schlinger Jr., Ph.D., BCBA-D

Course Description: Contrasts the traditional psychological and the behavior analytic views on sensation and perception and then uses the principles of behavior analysis to interpret the topics of hearing and listening and then the more difficult auditory imagining. Concludes that listening and (auditory) imagining consist of behaviors (either observed or unobserved) under certain kinds of stimulus control.


  • Describe the key features of behavior analysis as a natural science and its philosophical assumptions, including parsimony.
  • Identify what Skinner (1945) argued in his article “An Operational Analysis of Psychological Terms.”
  • Distinguish between the traditional and behavioral views of sensation and perception.
  • Determine what we are doing when we are said to be listening and distinguish between the behavior of the listener and listening as verbal behavior.
  • Contrast the traditional and behavioral views of imagining.
  • Describe a behavioral view of auditory imagining.
  • Describe evidence from brain imaging studies that supports the contention that imagining is a behavioral and not a cognitive process.
  • Determine the implications of auditory hallucinations, especially in schizophrenics.

Keywords: Radical behaviorism, listener behavior, sensation and perception
