(1968) identified a number of characteristics of applied behavior analysis including: (a) a focus on socially important behavior; (b) demonstration of functional relationships between environmental events and behavior; (c) clear description of procedures; (d) connection to basic behavioral principles; and (e) production of meaningful, generalizable, and long-lasting changes in behavior.
