Behavioral Persistence and Variability during Extinction of Self-Injury Maintained by Escape.
Goh, Han-Leong; Iwata, Brian A.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v27 n1 p173-74 Spr 1994
The self-injurious escape behavior of an adult with developmental disabilities was treated with extinction. Results of a reversal design showed substantial bursts of responding when extinction was introduced and reintroduced: self-injury remained at a variable and elevated rate for some time before stable, low rates were observed.
