Establishment and Maintenance of Positive Behavior Change Under Alternate Procedures for Microeconomy Initiation and Termination.
Byrd, Gary R.; Locke, Bill J.
Token management procedures, initiated in a community residential home for six reatarded subjects, were designed to affect social behaviors and personal care habits. Two delivery formats were used, one in which prior announcement of reinforcement contingencies was explained, a second in which target behaviors were consequated as they occurred. The announcement and consequation procedure was able to change the target behaviors much faster than the trial and error pace of consequation only procedure. However, each of the treatment formats attained a stable level of change, and there were no differences in maintaining the performance level. During the extinction phase, the greatest deterioration was noted in increments of maladaptive social behaviors, and the least change was observed among personal care habits. (Author/PJC)
