Modifying Deviant Social Behaviors in Various Classroom Settings. Monograph No. 1.
Benson, F. Arthur M., Ed.
Behavior modification procedures appropriate to the classroom for altering socially deviant behaviors in young children are described. In the first section (Teachers, Peers and Parents as Agents of Change in the Classroom), the classroom is not only the focus of study but also the setting in which treatment, in the form of intervention programs, occurs. How treatment is effected by the teacher, the peer group, and the parents is illustrated. Intervention and conditioning procedures, including a reinforcing work box placed on the student's desk, are discussed, and results with individual experimental subjects reported. The second section, Special Class Placement as a Treatment Alternative for Deviant Behavior in Children, describes the development and evaluation of a treatment model designed to modify hyperactive, disruptive classroom behavior. Special attention is given to the generalization of effects when the student leaves the special classroom for his normal one. Research data is reported. (KW)
