Koegel, Robert L.; Mentis, Michelle
Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry and Allied Disciplines, v26 n2 p285-91 Mar 1985

Discussion focuses on effects of failure on motivation, learned helplessness, shared control and increased success, and strategies for increasing exposure to favorable contingencies. (RH)
