This subject introduces students to a data-based model for understanding human behaviour and methods for promoting positive behaviour change. The focus will be on teaching students a structured procedure for analysing the behaviour of others and developing techniques for assisting them to learn more positive ways for functioning on a day-to-day basis.
Students will learn how to apply a 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 study. Students will be taught the necessary theory to implement the data-collection and analysis skills to the behaviour of others.
