Verbal Cueing as a Behavior Change Instrument.
Prieto, Alfonso G.; Rutherford, Robert B., Jr.
A study involving four boys (9 to 14 years old) labeled as emotionally handicapped was conducted to examine the effect of a verbal cueing technique (involving an illogical statement which evokes psychological reactance) on behaviorally disordered children. Illogical statements made by the teacher produced positive change in target behaviors (such as yelling out and math performance) for all Ss. (SBH)
