Behavioral Detectives: A Staff Training Exercise Book in Applied Behavior Analysis allows readers in on case conferences discussing behavioral issues in developmental disabilities and applied behavior analysis. Short stories are presented, always with a clinical mistake present. The job of the reader is to discover the mistake. The reader can then turn to the back to see if (s)he was correct, learning about applied behavior analysis along the way.
