Hello, this is Sean and Maasa! We are excited to welcome you to our Introduction to the Science of Behavior class (Part 2)! We will be building up to some complex topics during this class, so we encourage you to attend the Open House sessions and feel comfortable asking questions.

⚫︎ Class Description

This 4-week group class introduces the basics of the operant paradigm, consequential contingency. You will learn the effect of each variable on behavior and how each variable interacts together to change, increase, attenuate behavior. You will learn each variable in the consequential contingency and how to think about various situations through Sean and Maasa’s lens.

*We recommend taking group class part 1 before part 2, but it is not mandatory.

You can learn more about group class part 1 from here.
