This textbook presents the scientifically rigorous work in the last decades that has taken a behavior analytic perspective on larger social and cultural processes, with the eye to potential for contributions to address social and cultural issues. The book presents multiple intersecting perspectives intended for the use and application by graduate-level behavior analysis students. Contributors to this volume include many of the major scholars and practitioners conducting research and/or practicing in communities and larger cultural systems. Their work includes scientifically guided, systemic, and ecologically valid efforts related to community health, sustainability, and social justice efforts, among others, as well as basic research. All science proceeds by progressively building on the work of others, while remaining open to new findings and challenging existing conceptual frameworks. The same is true of cultural behavior science. This process will be explored and elaborated throughout this volume, intentionally assisting students both to learn and to question current theory and methods, while shaping and developing their own research and practice. There is material here to support preparation for specialists who intend to do research or practice with community and cultural-level systems, while providing enough background for students who intend to do direct and clinical work to also make contributions as engaged, informed citizens.

Mark A. Mattaini, DSW, ACSW, holds an emeritus appointment at Jane Addams College of Social Work, University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), where he was previously director of the doctoral program. He has developed, implemented, and researched behavioral strategies for individual, family, organizational, community and policy level interventions in the US, Canada, and Latin America, increasingly emphasizing advocacy, accompaniment, and activism in recent years. Consistent with that emphasis, his recent scholarship has focused on nonviolent action supporting social justice, and behavioral systems science at the cultural level. He is a research affiliate of the UIC Center for Research on Violence, and has chaired 25 dissertations related to responses to social issues. Most of his Ph.D. graduates are engaged in research and practice with marginalized populations, including those victimized by-and perpetrating-violence, and in developing evidence-guided supports for young people experiencing homelessness and social exclusion. Dr. Mattaini is author or editor of 13 books, two of the most recent being Strategic Nonviolent Power: The Science of Satyagraha, and Leadership for Cultural Change: Managing Future Well-Being, as well as numerous other publications. Editor of the interdisciplinary journal Behavior and Social Issues, Dr. Mattaini has served on the editorial boards of multiple journals in behavior analysis and social work. ABAI Convention Program Board Coordinator from 2013-2017, he has also been a long-time member of the Board of Planners for Behaviorists for Social Responsibility, the oldest ABAI SIG.
