Welcome to the Science of Behavior website! We are devoted to increasing personal fulfillment and happiness for you, and others around you, while working toward a less consuming and more sustainable world. Here you can:

  • Learn about the Science of Behavior, its philosophy, assumptions, and the important relationships between behavior and the environment.

  • Acquire knowledge about applying evidence-based interventions that improve behavior in homes, schools, businesses, communities, and the world-at-large.

  • Understand ethical behavior and how to manage conflicts between individual and cultural (social) contingencies of reinforcement.

  • Explain the relation of personal feelings to actions, why people feel the way they do, and how to create a world in which people will feel better.

  • Examine issues of “free will” versus control by other persons, groups, and governments.

  • Learn how to curtail dangerous world trends such as overpopulation, overconsumption, pollution, and warfare.

  • Become more familiar with the important writings of B.F. Skinner.
