Assessment and Treatment of Deviant Behavior. Interim Report.
Mattson, Robert H.; And Others
This interim report presents an introduction to a research study designed to develop educational procedures for modifying deviant behavior in children. A five-component treatment model was developed and research designed to evaluate the weights of each variable in the treatment process. Studies were designed to define strategies that would facilitate the generalization and persistence of treatment across time and setting, to study the teacher as a variable and to evaluate strategies to control behavior in regular classrooms. These three studies are summarized: (1) Stimulus Generalization, intending to maximize generalization and maintenance of modified behaviors, (2) Efficient Social Engineering, to increase efficiency of learning theory applications in applied settings, and (3) The Teacher as a Behavioral Engineer, to modify teacher behavior to strengthen reprogramming efforts in applied settings.
