Application of Behavior Analysis in Leisure Contexts: An Introductory Learning Manual introduces leisure and other service providers to behavior analysis and assists them in developing and strengthening their skills in applying associated techniques. This book examines and assesses behaviors and details ways to describe, observe, and measure behaviors. It also includes ways to influence behaviors by accelerating or decelerating behaviors. Further, it identifies strategies that help service providers teach behaviors that facilitate leisure involvement. It also provides details on promoting discrimination and generalization of behaviors. Finally, it encourages readers to be consistent and informed in their application of behavior analysis procedures. 

The authors have worked as clinicians and researchers, working in the areas of recreational therapy, leisure behavior, and autism, as well as teaching at the higher education level.
