Clinical Behavior Analysis is the application of behavior-analytic tools to treat depression, anxiety, stress, relationship discord, substance misuse, and others that have been traditionally characterized as mental disorders. Clinical behavior analysts work in universities, hospitals, and outpatient clinics, as well as in primary care and residential settings.
Clinical Behavior Analysis is one of many applied behavior analysis (ABA) subspecialties. To learn more about ABA and its application in other subspecialties, check out the About Behavior Analysis web page.
