Behavior Chains: Scientifically Explored
This Session explains the practice and research of behavior chains or individual behaviors that are linked by discriminative stimuli.
Good practices for teaching behavior chains are part of every advanced clicker trainer’s repertoire, but too few trainers understand the science that builds powerful chains, what practices fatally weaken chains, and how to avoid building accidental behavior chains. A clearer understanding of the underlying theory and the benefits and drawbacks of specific training practices will help you maximize behavior chains in your own training.
This Session draws on the research at the University of North Texas that examines behavior chains and cueing. It is part of the ClickerExpo signature series "Scientifically Explored" where training topics bring the latest academic research angle to bear.
