Operant Principles Applied to the Acquisition and Generalization of Nonlittering Behavior in Children.
Baltes, Margaret M.
The investigator felt that littering is a behavior contingent upon certain environmental conditions and that these conditions should be examined systematically. Specifically, this study sought to examine the effects of a behavior modification approach to littering with eight four-year-old subjects. Using token positive reinforcement, token punishment, rule reinforcement, and rule punishment as the experimental conditions, token positive reinforcement was most effective in gaining control over nonlittering behavior in terms of acquisition, maintenance, and generalization.
