Abstract: Behavior analysts have developed a number of effective behavioral technologies for a wide variety of socially important behavior; yet, there are opportunities for extension and refinement. Like the behavioral technology used to treat child problem behavior, parent training might be enhanced by understanding the contingencies controlling parent behavior. Child behavior is one source of control for parent behavior that likely contributes to the outcomes of parent training. Relative to parent training, there is less behavior analytic research investigating how to improve interview skills of college students, but they are of equal social importance. Parents and politicians are demanding that colleges and universities do more to ensure gainful employment for graduates who invest a lot of time and money into higher education. There is a need for effective and socially valid interview skills training at universities across the country. Attendees will learn about one model for teaching interview skills to college students and some possible influences of child behavior on parent behavior. Learning objectives 1. 1) Identify contingencies provided by child behavior for parent behavior. 2. 2) Describe an interview skills training model for college students. Bio: Dr. Stocco is an Assistant Professor and Director of the Behavior Analysis Masters of Science Program at Briar Cliff University (BCU). He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Behavior Analysis at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire (UWEC). Under the supervision of Dr. Rachel H. Thompson, he received his M.S. and Ph.D. from Northeastern University and Western New England University (WNE), respectively. The focus of his research and practice includes improving socially important behavior of children with autism and college students. He worked with people with autism at the UWEC Campus Autism Program, Applied Behavioral Intervention Solutions, and The New England Center for Children. More recently, he collaborated with career development centers and athletic departments at WNE and BCU to improve interview skills and athletic performance of college students.
