What Makes Extinction Work: An Analysis of Procedural Form and Function.
Iwata, Brian A.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v27 n1 p131-44 Spr 1994
This study examined methods for determining how extinction should be applied to different functions of self-injurious behavior, specifically head-banging of three children with developmental disabilities. Since each subject's head-banging was maintained by different reinforcement contingencies, behavioral treatment techniques, although all based on the principle of extinction, needed to differ.
