Dr. Hank Schlinger: The Echoic: The Little Verbal Operant That Could

ABSTRACT

In this webinar, I will discuss 1) how this little verbal operant—the echoic—to which Skinner devoted only 10 pages in his book Verbal Behavior, plays such a large role in the acquisition of speaking and listening repertoires, and 2) how an echoic repertoire can help account for complex verbal phenomena that go by such names as “listening,” “recalling” (as a form of “remembering”) and so-called emergent verbal relations.

Target Audience: Professionals for whom the topic is within their scope of practice. We welcome students and others who are also interested in the topic to join us.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this event participants will be able to:

  • Define the echoic and identify how it converts an auditory stimulus from a speaker into a verbal response by a listener and is, therefore, important for vocal verbal behavior (speaking and listening) acquisition.
  • Be able to identify how the echoic is the mechanism responsible not only for such complex phenomena as “listening” and “recalling”, but also for so-called emergent relations.

PRESENTER BIO

Henry D. (Hank) Schlinger Jr. received his Ph.D. in psychology (applied behavior analysis) from Western Michigan University (WMU) under the supervision of Jack Michael. He then completed a two-year National Institutes of Health-funded post-doctoral fellowship in behavioral pharmacology also at WMU with Alan Poling. Dr. Schlinger was a full tenured professor of psychology at Western New England University in Springfield, MA, before moving to Los Angeles. He is now professor of psychology and former director of the M. S. Program in Applied Behavior Analysis in the Department of Psychology at California State University, Los Angeles.

Dr. Schlinger has published more than 80 scholarly articles, chapters, and commentaries in 35 different journals and books. He also has authored or co-authored three books, Psychology: A Behavioral Overview (1990), A Behavior-Analytic View of Child Development (1995) (which was translated into Japanese), and Introduction to Scientific Psychology (1998). He is past editor of The Analysis of Verbal Behavior and The Behavior Analyst and sits on the editorial boards of several other journals. He also serves on the Board of Trustees of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies and on the Advisory Board of The B. F. Skinner Foundation and The Venus Project (https://www.resourcebasedeconomy.org/advisory-board/).
