Challenging Behavior Assessment and Intervention Lab

Behavior Support Services Clinic Facility.

About the Lab

The Challenging Behavior Assessment and Intervention (CB) Lab is comprised of graduate students in the Behavior Analysis specialization in the doctoral program in the Psychology Department at Utah State University and undergraduate students in the Psychology Department. The CB lab is engaged in collaborative and independent research projects that span across basic and applied domains of behavior analysis. We aim to improve outcomes for children and their families through research, teaching, and outreach. Our lab conducts high-quality research aimed at refining and developing interventions that promote lasting behavior change for children who engage in challenging behaviors, as well as empowering and educating caregivers and other stakeholders to consistently implement interventions with integrity.

Research Facilities

Dr. Brown’s clinic and lab are located in the Sorenson Center for Clinical Excellence, a space that features large classrooms, conference rooms, and therapy spaces that are uniquely designed for each clinic. The Challenge Behavior Assessment and Intervention lab primarily uses the space located on the second floor, in the Behavior Support Services clinic. This space is equipped with two specialized behavior therapy rooms, each equipped with observations booths, a one-way observation mirror, one-way audio, and a visual recording system. Students involved in clinical services and research also have access to a research pod located on the second floor.
