Further dimensions of contingency space analysis.

Contingency space analysis (CSA) has been widely utilized as a measure of contingency for decades. To date, a variety of associative measures (e.g., Yule’s Q, phi coefficient, operant contingency value [OCV]) have been employed to quantify behavior-consequence relations. Martens, Gertz, Werder, Rymanowski, and Shankar (2014) identified the OCV as most congruent with the definition of an operant contingency. As the OCV informs the strength of association, the current position considers this as a single dimension of CSA. The present article therefore presents several measures derived from the clinical epistemology literature. The derived measures reveal multiple facets of behavior-consequence associations to further inform intervention and practice. Clinical implications and future directions for CSA research are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)
