Abstract:

Hierarchical classification is of tremendous interest to both basic and applied research. This review explores hierarchical classification empirical studies from Relational Frame Theory (RFT). We identified 11 empirical articles that met inclusion criteria (demonstrated hierarchical responding in children or adults with an RFT theoretical approach). The objective of this qualitative systematic review is to offer both researchers and practitioners a solid and comprehensive view of types of protocols used from an RFT approach in establishing and analyzing hierarchical classification. Limitations and possible future research is discussed.
