CAAWT's Book Club

CAAWT Book Club is a place where we get together on zoom once a week for several weeks to discuss the main points of the assigned chapter, share our thoughts and understanding, and learn together. 

We just opened our first book club on a recently published book Nonlinear Contingency Analysis: Going Beyond Cognition and Behavior in Clinical Practice by Dr. T.V. Joe Layng, Dr. Paul Thomas Andronis, R Trent Codd III, Awab Abdel-Jalil! 

⚫︎ CAAWT Book Club Description

In this 8-week book club, we will be reading the book Nonlinear Contingency Analysis: Going Beyond Cognition and Behavior in Clinical Practice by Dr. T.V. Joe Layng, Dr. Paul Thomas Andronis, R Trent Codd III, Awab Abdel-Jalil. This book is a must-read if you are an animal trainer, BCBA, RBT, teacher, parent, or a person interested in behavior! This is a great introduction for the Constructional Approach (Goldiamond, 1974), Nonlinear Contingency Analysis, Topical and Systemic intervention, and Constructional Questionnaire! As a special treat, once we finish reading the book, we will welcome one of the authors, Dr. T.V. Joe Layng, where you can ask questions and bring discussion points!
