Behaviour
Analysis
 NEWSLETTER







Issue
#3
–
May
2008




Our
purpose
and
mission
is
to
develop
and
disseminate
knowledge
about
behaviour
analysis
as
 a
science.
MABA's
interests
lie
in
basic
science
focusing
on
principles
governing
human
and
 nonhuman
behaviour
(i.e.,
the
experimental
analysis
of
behaviour)
as
well
as
applied
science
 focusing
on
application
of
those
principles
for
improvement
of
socially
important
problems
 (i.e.,
the
applied
behaviour
analysis),
and
disseminating
this
information
to
stimulate
interest
 in
and
correct
misunderstandings
of
behaviour
analysis.
