The Other Type of Conditioning: ABA Applications for Health and Fitness

Applied behavior analysis is a science that has been applied to many areas of human life. Applications within the areas of health and fitness have been studied but are not well-publicized. In addition, a growing interest among behavior analysts exists to expand their scope of competence and practice within a variety of sub-areas that fall within the realm of health and fitness. In this talk, an overview of a number of areas will be provided, including weight management, healthy eating, smoking cessation, exercise and physical activity adherence, and sport-specific skills application.
