G. Roy Mayer, BCBA-D, is Professor Emeritus at California State University, Los Angeles. He also has taught at Indiana University, Southern Illinois University and Namseoul University in South Korea. He is one of the founders of the California Association for Behavior Analysis, and assisted in bringing Certification in Behavior Analysis to California.
Beth Sulzer-Azaroff, Ph.D. has been active in the field of applied behavior analysis from its earliest beginning. She has taught the subject at several major universities and conducted extensive behavior analytic research. The results of over a hundred studies have been published by her and her collaborators. She has authored over a dozen books, several in collaboration with G. Roy Mayer, on behavior analysis in education and in general applications.
Michele D. Wallace, BCBA-D graduated from the University of Florida in 2000 with her doctorate in the Experimental Analysis of Behavior. She is currently an Associate Professor at California State University, Los Angeles and Program Coordinator.Review:
Behavior Analysis for Lasting Change is firmly grounded in current research and principles. It is not merely a textbook that provides practitioners with the techniques and tricks that they might use on the job, but rather a textbook that prepares students to become critical consumers of research and critical evaluators of treatment efficacy -- exactly the repertoires we hope for competent behavior analysts to possess. In short, this text is ideal for shaping the next generation of scientist practitioners. I am thrilled that Mayer, Sulzer-Azaroff, and Wallace (2011) will be contributing to the long tradition of graduate training in behavior analysis at Southern Illinois University. --Ruth Anne Rehfeldt, BCBA-D, Ph.D., Southern Illinois University
Beth Sulzer-Azaroff, G. Roy Mayer and Michele Wallace deliver the best textbook for applied behavior analysis available. Easy-to-read, well-researched and practical, this book will provide both students and instructors strategies to solve real life problems. Indeed, this book puts the "applied" back into behavior analysis. --Kathleen Dyer, CCC-SLP, Ph.D. BCBA-D, Clinical Director, River Street Autism Program at Coltsville
I have used the previous edition of Behavior Analysis for Lasting Change for a number of years in a graduate-level introductory class in behavior analysis for teacher certification candidates. The text was well organized, sequenced coherently, clearly written and technically correct. Throughout the chapters there are sufficient and useful illustrations and examples of concepts. The text provides a proper balance of theory and application. On course evaluations students consistently indicated that they enjoyed using the text and found it to be accessible and useful. After a perusal of the new edition it appears the authors have maintained the rigor and quality of the previous edition and provided some important updates. --Steven R. Lyon, Ph.D, University of Pittsburgh
