Social Systems Analysis: Implementing an Alternative Behavioral Model.
Wahler, Robert C.; And Others
Research and clinical workers in the field of applied behavior analysis appear wedded to the re-education model of child behavior change. A review of the empirical literature strongly suggests that this model is inadequate in a number of respects. In response to these inadequacies, the authors propose an expansion of the model -- an expansion referred to as a social systems approach. This approach is a measurement effort to reach beyond the dyadic view constraining the re-education model. Some practical derivatives of such an alternative are presented and the specific steps to implement a social systems approach are outlined. (Author)
