Eliminating Self-Defeating Behaviors: New Group Procedures.
Cerio, James E.
This paper presents a new format for conducting workshops for college students on eliminating self-defeating behaviors, based on a psychoeducational approach. The content of each of the eight lunch-hour sessions is described including the learned nature of self-defeating behaviors and the tracking identification and changing of such behaviors through the use of appropriate behaviors and reinforcers. Advertisements, explanations of the model workshop, descriptions of strategies for eliminating self-defeating behaviors, and a bibliography are included. Research to determine the efficacy of the workshops in the Harford Community College setting is also described. (Author/JAC)
