This workshop will present NIH's Bench-to-Bedside initiative and relate it to contemporary advances in behavior analytic approaches to the treatment of behavior disorders. Translational research will be discussed and illustrated in basic and applied research on the variables that affect treatment relapse. The approach describes how basic non-human research has led to the development of human clinical models of treatment relapse and how this research has led to innovative developments in behavioral treatments that can avoid or reduce the magnitude of treatment relapse. The importance of coordinating basic and applied research is emphasized.
