Analysis of Social Skills: The Behaviour Analysis Approach
The ideas and the work which I am going to describe had their beginnings in what was then British Overseas Airways Corporation, around the end of 1968. Thus, I shall be trying to encapsulate 10 years of fairly intensive thinking, research and development in the short span of this paper. I can hope to do no more than outline some of the basic concepts which we have evolved, and give a highly selective account of some of the applications of the concepts.
