Home Token Economy: An Incentive Program for Children and Their Parents.
Alvord, Jack R.
This behavior modification program, for use by parents with their children, shows parents how to use tokens to provide contingent reinforcement for increasing desirable behaviors. Withdrawal of tokens is used as punishment to extinguish behaviors deemed undesirable. The program includes an introduction for the professional, but is intended primarily for use by parents themselves rather than by professionals. It provides detailed instructions for all aspects of parent management. A separate contract sheet is included on which parents are to specify desirable and undesirable behaviors, and day-by-day records of the child's progress. (NG)
