There Is More to Operant Theory and Practice: Comment on Guess and Carr.
Lovaas, O. Ivar; Smith, Tristram
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v96 n3 p324-27 Nov 1991
This response to a paper by Guess and Carr (EC 602 212) on stereotypy and self-injurious behavior in the disabled focuses on (1) potentially misleading statements that may discourage practitioners from operant approaches to stereotypy and self-injury, and (2) strengths and weaknesses of the model compared to existing operant models.
