Written by leading experts in language and cognition, this groundbreaking behaviour analysis textbook brings the study of verbal behaviour into the 21st century with cutting-edge research. Students and clinicians in the burgeoning field of applied behaviour analysis will find the theoretical foundation they need to effectively help the increasingly diverse clients seeking their services. The origins of behaviour analysis can be traced to the pioneering work of B.F. Skinner. Skinner's fundamental insights into how human behaviour is shaped, maintained and can be changed were powerful and far-reaching. Some of Skinner's most innovative contributions were in the study of language. Behaviour analytic work in the area of language and cognition did not stop with Skinner, however. Indeed, Skinner's work in this area has inspired considerable expansion, particularly with an eye toward more sophisticated verbal and cognitive repertoires.

This important volume provides an overview of the concepts and core behavioural processes involved in language and
cognition. You'll find a deeper exploration of complex linguistic and cognitive skills, including generative responding,
learning by observation, and perspective taking. Also included are clinically supported interventions based in mindfulness, psychological flexibility, and emotion regulation to help clients improve complex language, social, and academic skills. The future of behaviour analysis is here. With its focus on the importance of language and cognition, this textbook is a must-read for anyone studying or practising in the science of behaviour.
