Rehabilitation Associate Training for Employed Staff. Increasing Existing Behavior (RA-6).
Jensen, Mary; Trace, Michael W.
This learning module, which is intended for use in in-service training for vocational rehabilitation counselors, deals with methods of increasing client behaviors that do not occur often or fast enough. The following topics are discussed: basic approaches to increasing the extent and frequency of desired behaviors; ways of changing environment; and reinforcement, including determining reinforcers, using different categories of reinforcers (activities, tangibles, and social reinforcers), selecting and delivering reinforcers, and using negative reinforcement. The text reviews basic strategies and provides an opportunity for supervised application of the techniques described. Two self-tests are also included. (MN)
