Procedures That Enhance the Maintenance and Generalization of Induced Behavioral Change.
Williams, W. Weston
Reviewed is research regarding procedures to enhance the maintenance and generalization of induced behavior changes. Discussion of the procedures is divided into three categories: transfer of training (including treatment under many different stimulus conditions), changing the natural environment (through training parents, peers, and others in daily contact with the child), and teaching the client self regulating procedures (such as self-recording of behavior). It is concluded that teaching the client self regulating behaviors offers the key to maintenance or generalization of behavior across time and environments. (Author/CL)
