Helping for Change
Neuringer, Allen; Oleson, Kathryn C.
Behavior Analyst, v33 n2 p181-184 Fall 2010
In "Helping for Change," Allen Neuringer and Kathryn Oleson describe another strategy that individuals can use to achieve their green goals. You might ask, "How can helping someone else help me change when I'm in the habit of not fulfilling my own promises?" The authors answer that question by explaining how the social reinforcement in a helping relationship keeps us on task and builds correspondence between what we say and what we do.
