Use of Negative Reinforcement in the Treatment of Self-Injurious Behavior.
Steege, Mark W.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v23 n4 p459-67 Win 1990
Two severely handicapped children (ages 5-6) exhibiting self-injurious behavior were treated with negative reinforcement (brief escape from grooming activities) contingent upon a behavior that was incompatible with self-injury (pressing a microswitch that activated a "stop" message). Treatment led to decreased self-injury, which was maintained at followup for one child. (Author/JDD)
