The Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies
The Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies (CCBS) is the non-profit international institute of Behavior Analysis, founded by Robert Epstein nel 1981, that harnesses the expertise of hundreds of behavioral scientists to solve problems in the home, school, community, and the workplace.
Mission of the institute is to advance the scientific study of behavior and its humane application to the solution of practical problems.
To achieve this mission,the Center has 3 main goals:
Create and deliver trustworthy information on high quality behavioral services and science around the world;
Improve the future of behavioral science by educating and developing the future behavioral scientists and practitioners;
Promote global collaboration among behavioral organizations.
The Center is founded on the voluntary efforts of its directors, trustees, and advisors (including AARBA President, Fabio Tosolin). These individuals represent the best experts in behavioral science and practice. They develop the highest quality video instruction and presentations, evaluate and accredit world-class programs of workplace safety and applied behavior analysis services, write books and articles, and produce video and audio broadcasts for the online distribution. They also link the public to resources from other organizations.
