Lerman, Dorothea C.; Iwata, Brian A.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v29 n3 p345-82 Fall 1996
Basic and applied research on variables that influence the extinction of operant behaviors is reviewed and applied to the treatment of behavior disorders. The potential value of a general technology for the use of behavioral extinction is discussed. The paper concludes that current research findings are not sufficient for the development of a comprehensive, applied technology of extinction. (CR)
