    I Have Decided to Call this Criminal Behaviorology

    In a recent symposium, presented online, your host had the opportunity to present on the Application and Dissemination of Applied Behavior Analysis in the Criminal Justice Field. Along with an excellent opportunity to discuss an area of behavior analysis not always presented at such conferences, there was also a walk down memory lane regarding some of the episodes we have presented previously. In addition, the announcement of an upcoming (July 30th, 2020) webinar on “Novel Uses of Applied Behavior Analysis,” for which Continuing Education units are available. Sign-up information is below:

    Updates and other information on this webinar can be found at this Facebook page:

    https://www.facebook.com/NovelApplications/

    Show Highlights:

    - The start of Criminal Behaviorology as an area of interest. A brief review of literature on crime and behavior analysis that is by no means exhaustive.

    - A Special Interest Group with the Association of Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) on Crime, Delinquency and Forensic Behavior Analysis.

    - A special focus on domestic violence, in part because of some very intriguing literature, and because it is an area of where crime and behavior analysis intersect in some ways potentially quite beneficial.

    - The upcoming webinar on the novel applications of ABA. A set of speakers on different topics for students, researchers, and practitioners of applied behavior analysis.

    Criminology from a New Perspective: The Psychosocial View

    Criminology from a New Perspective: The Psychosocial View

    David Gadd and Tony Jefferson wrote the book Psychosocial Criminology. These gentlemen graciously agreed to interview via WebEx and discuss the ideas in the book. Although we had some differences in approach to the fascinating world of criminality, we also shared some common ground on the importance of individual experiences and the complexities involving each case. We went on past the scheduled time, but Tony Jefferson reminded me that none of us are going anywhere, with things as they are, so we continued the discussion a bit longer.

    Show Highlights:
    - The distinction of the psychosocial view from a purely sociological examination on what causes crime.
    - The significance of the case-study approach. Contrasting case studies from cross-sectional research. How looking at large population comparisons can be a problem when analyzing data. The proper use of case studies and cross-sectional approaches.
    - Freud’s ideas regarding mental conflict. The relevance of the Freudian view and what is the unconscious anyway (sorry behavior analysts 😊).
    - The sensitive topic of sexual assault and the motives involved. How the idea of “power” being the motivation is, perhaps, too simplistic.
    - The Jeffrey Dahmer case and the unique and not-so-unique features of the case. Why Dahmer is a good example of the importance of the psychosocial view.
    - A book by Jack Katz, Seductions of Crime. How the views of Jack Katz have added to, and been expanded upon, in the book Psychosocial Criminology.

    Religion Reinforced – Religion as a schedule-induced behavior and the case of "King" James Strang

    Religion Reinforced – Religion as a schedule-induced behavior and the case of "King" James Strang

    Criminal Behaviorology

    Religion Reinforced – Religion as a schedule-induced behavior and the case of “King” James Strang

    Timothy reads from a 2009 article on religion as a schedule-induced behavior by Paul S. Strand. In addition, a reading from Larry B. Massie’s Voyages Into Michigan’s Past focuses on a segment of a Mormon sect from the 19th century, and their leader James Strang who declared himself a king, and was revered as a prophet.

    Show Highlights:

    - The two classes of religious behavior: Nonoperant schedule-induced and operant behavior. The consistency of these two classes with the “graceful” and “effortful” religious experiences written about by theologians.

    - How and why religion may maintain as a behavior across continents and generations. Religious behavior transcends topography.

    - Learning in the form of socially mediated reinforcement. Acquired religious behavior may be motivated by social contingencies. Foundational religious behavior is motivated by something more. Foundational religious behavior continues regardless of the consequences.

    - Declaring oneself an atheist as a religious act in itself.

    - The potential for the automatic reinforcement of religion.

    - Skinner’s superstition concept, and how subsequent research does not support his conclusions as an explanation of religious behavior.

    - Induced behavior as being in the middle ground between pure operant behavior and reflexes.

    - The murder of James Jesse Strang (“The King of Beaver Island”). The dramatic career of Strang as a Mormon religious leader and violent end of the Strangite sect on a remote Lake Michigan island.

    A Clockwork Behavior Analysis: Bobby Newman Discusses Myth and Reality Regarding Behavior Analysis, Crime and the Famous Anthony Burgess Story

    A Clockwork Behavior Analysis: Bobby Newman Discusses Myth and Reality Regarding Behavior Analysis, Crime and the Famous Anthony Burgess Story

    Criminal Behaviorology

    A Clockwork Behavior Analysis: Bobby Newman Discusses Myth and Reality Regarding Behavior Analysis, Crime and the Famous Anthony Burgess Story

    A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess is a controversial and intriguing novel about a violent, delinquent young man who is subjected to a radical conditioning procedure with frightening results. The 1963 book provides an image of a near future world that could be described as unique, humorous, dramatic and disturbing. In this podcast I interview Dr. Bobby Newman regarding his 1991 article on the Anthony Burgess fictional work, and how it has influenced the perception of behavior analysis.

    Show Highlights:

    - An explanation of what Burgess was trying to convey with his writings and how his vision was shaped by a devout Catholic faith.

    - The question of free will becoming significant in a story like this. What is the behavior analytic view on the concept of free will?

    - Behavior analysis, instead of crushing freedom (as depicted in certain fictional stories) could be the pathway to liberate us from environmental contingencies that have trapped us.

    - Evidence for how behavior analytic techniques have helped reduce recidivism among juvenile delinquents.

    - How psychology and behavior analysis are portrayed in Clockwork.

    - How behavior analysis has portrayed itself to the public.

    The Exploitation of Crime: Crimesploitation and the Media Misuse of Reality Crime Stories

    The Exploitation of Crime: Crimesploitation and the Media Misuse of Reality Crime Stories

    Criminal Behaviorology

    The Exploitation of Crime: Crimesploitation and the Media Misuse of Reality Crime Stories

    Paul Kaplan, PhD and Daniel La Chance, PhD, two experts on cultural criminology, have written on Crimesploitation, where reality programs create a kind of folk wisdom about crime, addictions and correctional work. The dangers of this kind of portrayal, the popularity of these shows and the possible hidden agenda in the development of such entertainment form the basis of this episode. I interview Paul Kaplan to discuss his work on crimesploitation, and cover the different forms of this intriguing phenomenon being broadcast on television programs and internet podcasts.

    Show Highlights:

    - What is crimesploitation and how can we distinguish it from other kinds of educational programs on crime, corrections and addiction? Is the nightly news an example? What about this podcast!?

    - The two likely target audiences of crimesploitation.

    - The irony of Neoliberalism and Law and Order Punitivism.

    - The “Addiction Industrial Complex.”

    - Does crimesploitation subtly justify police misconduct, aggressive law enforcement tactics and even vigilante justice?

    - How the program To Catch a Predator, a popular show nationwide, came to its own abrupt end in a case of “punitive burnout.”

    - How such voyeuristic broadcasts may promote an escape from social responsibilities in our modern world.

    - When discussing cases of the wrongly convicted, how the emphasis should be on more than just finding out who is innocent, but instead on the preservation of the rights of criminal defendants.

    - Death as a taboo topic and why it is a factor in our interest in the macabre.
