Application of Behavior Analysis in Leisure Contexts: An Introductory Learning Manual is designed to introduce leisure and other service providers to behavior analysis and to assist them in developing and strengthening their skills in applying associated techniques.

The text contains five sections with 21 associated chapters.

The first section is devoted to examining and assessing behaviors and details ways to describe, observe, and measure behaviors.

The second section includes ways to influence behaviors by accelerating or decelerating behaviors.

In the third section, strategies are identified to help service providers teach behaviors that facilitate leisure involvement.

In the fourth section, details are provided on promoting discrimination and generalization of behaviors.

In the final section, readers are encouraged to be consistent and informed in their application of behavior analysis procedures.

The book is intended to help improve the ability of service providers to interact with people in a helpful and respectful manner and create contexts that encourage leisure engagement.
