Behavior Modification: A Curriculum for Instructors.
San Antonio State Hospital, TX. Office of Education Services.
This set of training modules presents a general curriculum which addresses the theory, principles and procedures of behavior therapy modification techniques. It is meant to be used in a variety of hospitals, schools, and human development centers; thus it represents a common core of training upon which individual settings can build to provide staff training appropriate to their particular needs. The modular format presents the instructor with a complete training "package," including a comprehensive lesson plan, a programmed student handout, a quiz, a solution to the quiz, and supporting audiovisual materials. The 13 modules cover such topics in behavior modification as learning principles, measurement and evaluation, schedules of reinforcement, specific techniques, token economies, the use of punishment, and suggestions for setting up a behavior modification program.
