Summary

With an emphasis on practical solutions to behavior problems, Chance offers an unparalleled approach to behavior analysis. Creating a simulated classroom, course content is presented by "Dr. Cee"--a fictitious instructor who interacts with equally fictitious students. Through Dr. Cee, Chance teaches the language of behavior theory and analysis as well as the most important procedures for changing behavior and the principles that underlay those procedures. The dialogue between Dr. Cee and the students is realistic; the students ask questions, giving readers a chance to see if they know the answer to the questions raised. Effective and engaging, Chance's Socratic approach is very readable, yet does not sacrifice accuracy and specificity.
