The Effects of Using Self-Modeling Narratives for Behavior Change
Whitaker, Susan D.; Pae, Holly; Jones, Julie P.
Journal of the International Association of Special Education, v16 n1 p42-50 2015
In this study, the authors used a single subject A-B-A design to investigate the effectiveness of Self-Modeling Narratives (SMNs) as a behavioral intervention for two students diagnosed as having a learning disability and one with a developmental delay. SMNs are personalized stories that explain a situation and then use the student to demonstrate the appropriate way to behave in the circumstances. For each of the three students in this study, the intervention had the desired effect of modifying the target behavior. The authors contend that the combination of bibliotherapy, vicarious reinforcement, and self-modeling used in the SMN can be effective in changing behavior.
