The goal of this journal is to provide a vehicle for scientists to share research findings to help build sound policies, and allow those who design policies or implement research findings to provide feedback to the scientific community regarding the types of research that could address them. PIBBS challenges behavioral and brain scientists to build models, provide evidence, and consider obstacles to implementation, so as to address the needs of society.
Opening with Volume 4, the first issue features the policy implications of research in clinical science. How can applied behavior analysis treat children’s problem behavior or improve their language skills? When can incentives help people stop smoking or start eating healthier food? Why does biofeedback control stress? How do early interventions improve the prognosis for autism and psychosis? What are the chemical influences of marijuana on the brain? Policymakers, teachers, parents, therapists, and researchers all can benefit from these accessible, expert perspectives.
