Functional Analysis Of Behavior
Functional analysis examines the causes and consequences of behavior. One assumption of functional analysis is that behavior is contextual – it is influenced by the environment around the individual. Behavior has consequences and in operant conditioning terms these can be seen to reinforce or punish a behavior, making it more or less likely to occur in the future.
