Title:

How can behavioral analysis contribute to face the challenges of the contemporary world?

Abstract:

Behavioral science has provided some of the most powerful tools we have to address individual problems. At this socio-historical moment, when many of the local problems become global, the tools of behavior analysis can play an important role in helping to face some of the challenges of the contemporary world, always remembering that no intervention on conduct is ideologically and politically neutral.
