Ron Van Houten, Ph.D.
Ron Van Houten, Ph.D. Western Michigan University Professor of Psychology Dr. Van Houten received his BA from SUNY at Stony Brook and his MA and Ph.D. from Dalhousie University where he received training in the Experimental Analysis of Behavior. He is currently Professor of Psychology at Western Michigan University. Dr. Van Houten has published extensively in JABA on a wide variety of problems, ranging from the education of inner city youth and children with "learning disabilities", the treatment of children and adults with developmental delays, the treatment of clinical problems in children, traffic safety, energy conservation, and aviation safety. Currently Dr. Van Houten is a member of the Transportation Research Board and a member of the National Committee for Uniform Traffic Control Devices. He is a past AE for the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and a Fellow of the ABAI. Dr. Van Houten received award for Scientific Translation Promoting the Impact of Science on Application award from the Society for the Advancement of Behavior Analysis (SABA) in 2015 and the Patricia F. Waller Award from the Transportation Research Board (of the National Academies of Sciences conferred in 2014 for his work on changing the driving culture on a city wide basis. Follow-up data show that the behavior change actually increased further at a four-year follow-up measure. He is also an avid pilot flying power aircraft and gliders and a flight instructor.

Dr. Ron Van Houten talks about behaviourally engineering traffic safety - an interview from the ABAI Conference.
Podcast Episode 15 Behaviour Change - Necessity is the Mother of Invention Dr. Ron Van Houten, Bobbi Hoadley, Cathy Knights The person we are talking to is such an interesting man, his name is Doctor Ron Van Houten and he is an ABA doctor and a professor at Western Michigan University. He has done work all over North American and Europe in traffic safety and how to decrease the conflicts that create near misses and people getting hurt. He has changed the behaviour of both drivers and pedestrians using Behaviour Analysis. Ron sets up solutions that engineer the behavior of everybody in those situations to mitigate the risk. Ron: There were studies done that show that cars coming up to a crosswalk don't have a good line of sight. Ron: In essence, we know that people don't like to wait. Ron: I wanted to get people to not use the elevator when they didn't need it. Ron: We got the community buy-in to change the way things are done. Ron: Some of the worst places I've seen, people say "oh we don't have a problem". Ron: Score and look at what's going on in Toronto-measure running lights. Ron: Consider for a moment, children used to walk or bicycle to school. Look today at obesity cause-lack of walking and bicycling. Ron: There is a greater acceptance of cycling than there used to be, and a little better with pedestrians. Ron: Scrambling intersections, creates more delay, but tends to be where there's a lot of people. Match up treatments to people best you can. Ron: You can use something called a gateway treatment, so driver's have to cross between them, we can get very good yielding with that and it's an inexpensive tool. Ron: Exactly. Ron: The other thing we can do is feedback and reinforcement. When we have a community making progress, we need to convey that to them to keep going in the right direction. It was so nice to have Ron interacting with us and telling us more. The part I really like is that everything he does is the same as what I do. Even though he's applying it to a variety of groups of people and he has a specific goal, he still does an analysis of the behaviour, and uses all the same tools I do, keeps it pragmatically going until he hits a tipping point and then keeps maintaining and generalizing it.
