Group Description

Group Description
As of December 2017, we changed the nature of the PBAS list from an email-interaction group to a read-only resource. Please go to the Files section of this list to access the materials.

Our new goal is to provide readings and resources to people interested in improving their Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) skills to prevent and solve behavior problem situations with their companion parrots.

The readings here emphasize identifying the observable functional relations between behavior and the environment, and positive-first teaching solutions.
The three fundamental principles of the scientific analysis of behavior are as follows:
(1) Behavior has function.
(2) Future behavior is related to past consequences.
(3) Thoughtful antecedent arrangement of the environment enables us to facilitate and maintain successful behaviors.

Two steadfast tenets that guide the information here:
(1) To change the behavior of your parrot you must change your behavior first.
(2) Positive-first teaching solutions should be applied to each other as well as our birds.

We hope you enjoy the readings and here, and that they help you gain knowledge and skills changing behavior effectively and humanely.

For more information, check out these helpful resources.







All best,
SGF and The TEAM

"The ultimate test of understanding positive reinforcement theory
is not how we practice it with our parrots but how we practice it
with one another." SGF
