Fisher, Wayne W.; Iwata, Brian A.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v29 n1 p93-98 Spr 1996
Discussion of the functional relationship between self-injurious behavior (SIB) and self-restraint in people with severe disabilities considers SIB and self-restraint as members of the same functional response class, SIB and self-restraint as functionally independent responses, access to self-restraint as positive reinforcement of SIB, termination of SIB as negative reinforcement of self-restraint, and clinical implications.
