Behavioral Self-Control Delivery Systems.
Spinelli, Philip R.; Packard Ted
This document describes a developmental/preventive behavioral self-control seminar which was offered to undergraduate college students through a regularly scheduled class. The course format included lectures, personal projects and group interaction, as well as reading and discussing the basic concepts of behavioral modification. Specific techniques developed and carried out by class members included identifying specific target behaviors, self-monitoring, making appropriate environmental changes and arranging for self-imposed consequences. Each student made a behavioral contract each week and reported to the class on results. From the authors' experience to date, it would seem that a behavioral self-control class has both remedial as well as developmental/preventive capabilities. College students were able to use the experience to execute positive changes in what would be considered normal life problems. The authors discuss other uses for such classes in the mental health areas. (Author/PC)
