Analogue Assessment of the Replacement Behavior
Cipani, Ennio
International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v4 n4 p374-379 2008
The use of experimental analyses in determining behavioral function for problems behaviors is well established. Such analyses lead to functional treatment prescriptions for the target problem behavior. However, data indicative of the strength of the replacement behavior are often not collected during a functional behavioral assessment. I examine the utility of such data collection. I present analogue assessment methods for determining whether the replacement behavior is in the repertoire of the client, or needs to be shaped. (Contains 5 tables and 7 footnotes.)
