This subject introduces students to an evidence-based framework for understanding the functions of human behaviour. This subject will focus on teaching students the techniques used to conduct a systematic analysis of behaviour that limits human performance. Students will also learn about the specific strategies that can be used to create meaningful and long-term change in human behaviour.
Students will learn how to apply a basic framework for collecting and analysing data relating to a particular unwanted behaviour of their own. Students will also learn practical strategies for creating positive changes in the behaviour they choose to understand and modify during the duration of this subject.
