FREE SESSION with CEU’s!! Part 1: Conceptualizing Values from a Behavioral Perspective

Click here to register for this FREE introductory session!

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe appetitive and aversive functional relations.
  2. Describe valued living in terms of appetitive repertoires.


Values are of increasing interest to behavior analysts. However, definitions of values and valued living often rely on terms outside of behavior analysis, making them less immediately actionable. This presentation will first review definitions of values and valued living that have been offered, then unpack values from a behavioral perspective. This conceptual analysis positions valued living on a functional continuum of behaviors participating in appetitive functional relations, and considers appetitive learning as central to a flexible repertoire. This analysis has action implications for fostering valued living for ourselves, each other, and those we serve.
