AimThe main aim of this course is to learn the principles found through empirical studies in understanding human behaviors and to create an interactive learning environment to understand current and clinical cases using these principles. In this course, students will learn how to define human behaviors, how to distinguish behaviors from other aspects of human beings, and how to use functional analysis to address behavior. In this process, students will gain knowledge about the basic principles of functional contextualist philosophy, learning theories, and relational framework theory and will be able to use these learnings in their daily lives.
Course ContentThis course contains; Introduction, Human and Behavior Concepts,Human phenomena,Classification of Behaviors,Generic Formulation: Functional Analysis of Behavior,Basic Concepts and Cases in Classical Conditioning,Theoretical Approaches in Classical Conditioning,Basic Concepts and Cases in Operant Learning,Theoretical Approaches to Operant Learning, Reinforcement, Punishment, Extinction,Reinforcement: Researches and Schedules, Stimulus Control,Verbal Behavior and Types-Dr. Merve Terzioğlu,Rule Governed Behaviors -Dr. Merve Terzioğlu,Language, Cognition and Relational Learning-Dr. Merve Terzioğlu,Principles of Relational Learning-Dr. Merve Terzioğlu, To bring it all together-Dr. Merve Terzioğlu.
