Efficacy of Some Behavior Management Strategies for Students with Serious Emotional Disturbances.
McDowell, Alison; Askvig, Brent A.
This paper reviews the literature on several popular behavior change strategies that have been implemented in classrooms or other educational settings with students with severe emotional disturbances. Each strategy is first described and then data on its effectiveness are reviewed. The strategies reviewed are: (1) timeout; (2) self-evaluation; (3) choice making strategies; (4) cognitive behavioral strategies (attribution retraining, conflict resolution training, problem solving training, communication-based curriculum, reality therapy); (5) differential reinforcement techniques (of low rate behaviors, other behaviors, appropriate behaviors, and incompatible behaviors); and (6) parent training. Recommendations to teachers concerning classroom use of the various strategies are offered. (Contains 27 references.) (DB)
