What does a Behavior Analyst do?

Behavior analysts assess the behavioral and mental health of their clients to determine appropriate treatment plans that decrease negative behavior and increase their positive choices. Their clients live with emotional disabilities and seek their help improve social functions and concerns.

Behavior analysts assess patient behavior and provide a diagnosis for their emotional issues. They provide therapy through individual and group sessions, and make suggestions on how their clients can improve their school or work performance as well as their daily lives. Behavior analysts also meet with families, educators, and other relevant individuals who work with their clients to get correct and proper insight into what the client's concerns may be. A behavior analyst will provide safe opportunities for their client to deploy strategies, tips, and techniques discussed during therapy sessions. Behavior analysts also work with sensory components and suggest any additional treatment by other professionals in the field, as required. Behavior analysts must earn a master's degree in psychology, applied behavior analysis, or education. They must also complete an approved, university-supervised practice, or gain supervised work experience.
