Carstensen, Laura L.; Erickson, Rebecca J.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v19 n4 p349-55 Win 1986
Serving refreshments was shown to increase attendance and frequency of interaction in the activity area of a nursing home. Quantitative and qualitative changes in vocal behavior were evaluated. Rates of interaction more than doubled during treatment phases, but ineffective vocal behavior accounted for most of the increase. (Author/JW)
