Davis, Michael J.
This learning module, which is intended for use in in-service training for vocational rehabilitation counselors, provides information and practice for developing token economies. The following topics are discussed: tokens and the rationale for using them; advantages of token economies; procedures for using a token system (specifying behaviors that need a reinforcement system, developing a menu of reinforcers, setting prices and wages, selecting tokens, using tokens, recording and evaluating, and fading out to other more normal reinforcement systems); and troubleshooting. A feedback sheet, bibliography, and three self-tests are also included. (MN)
