Do we really need to growing old waiting to capture the behavior that may never occur? Join Dr. Susan G. Friedman, an applied behavior analyst, in a discussion of shaping new behavior. With shaping, new behaviors can be taught and other dimensions changes such as duration and intensity, without coercion of any kind.
