Question prompt/summary
• Part 1
People who are not familiar with (or who do not accept) a behaviorist perspective often describe the causes of behavior in mentalistic terms. Though mentalistic explanations of behavior are a part of everyday, colloquial language, this perspective presents challenges for the behavior analyst when communicating the basis of our assessment and proposed treatment and interventions.
As a team:
o Define the term “mentalistic” citing sources from your readings in this course.
o Select a mentalistic quality often referenced (by civilians) as an underlying cause of behavior.
o Discuss how this mentalistic description would be described by a behaviorist. Translate the mentalistic interpretation of behavior to a behaviorist perspective. Your approach here will be similar to that of Skinner’s interpretation of ‘the hungry pigeon’ in Behaviorism at fifty [Mental Way Stations’ (p. 955)].
• Part 2
o Discuss Radical Behaviorism.
o As a team, compose a definition of Radical Behaviorism (citing sources from your readings in this course).
o Identify the components of your definition of Radical Behaviorism that may be difficult for someone who is not familiar with or does not accept a behaviorist perspective.
o Compose an approach that could convey your treatment approach – grounded in the tenets of Radical Behaviorism – to parents of a hypothetical client.
• Part 3
o Define and provide an example of Operant Behavior
o In About Behaviorism, Chapter 4, Skinner discusses Feelings, Purpose and Intention. He writes, “The view that mental activity is essential to operant behavior is an example of the view that feelings or introspectively observed states are causally effective” (p. 71). Discuss the meaning of this statement.
o From the perspective of a radical behaviorist, discuss how this statement could be explained to persons not familiar with behaviorism.
