    • SELF-MANAGEMENT Psychology 6710 Excellent Student Aug. 8 th , 2008
    • PROBLEM
      • I need to be flossing every day to make sure that I don’t get cavities from all the sugar I eat.
      • The problem is that daily flossing only has a small but cumulative outcome.
      • I can miss anyone day and there will be no serious outcome.
    • INEFFECTIVE NATURAL CONTINGENCY Have infinitesimally better gum health Have a given level of gum health Floss teeth BEFORE AFTER BEHAVIOR
    • COMPETING CONTINGENCIES
      • Not only does flossing on any given day only infinitesimally improve my gum health it hurts and causes my gums to bleed
    • NATURAL COMPETING CONTINGENCY Gums are in pain Gums are not in pain Floss teeth BEFORE AFTER BEHAVIOR
    • THE SM INTERVENTION
      • Target behavior: Floss teeth
      • Contingencies: Flossing avoids the loss of IPod
      • Deadline (S D ): Before the end of each day
      • PM manager: Matt
      • Start Date: June 9 th , 2008
      • End Date: Current
      MA TT
    • PERFORMANCE-MANAGEMENT CONTINGENCY Will not lose IPod for a day at next class Will lose IPod for a day at next class Floss teeth BEFORE AFTER BEHAVIOR S D (Deadline): Before Bed every night
    • INFERRED THEORETICAL CONTINGENCY No fear loss Of IPod for a day at the Next class Fear loss of IPod for a day at the next class Floss Teeth BEFORE AFTER BEHAVIOR
    • TARGET BEHAVIOR GRAPH Baseline Intervention Weeks Number of times flossed Goal line
    • BENEFIT MEASURE GRAPH Baseline Intervention Weeks # of Days that gums bleed Goal line
    • PROBLEMS DURING INTERVENTION
      • Problem 1:
      • After I moved out of my apartment I misplaced my floss
      • I missed two days
      • Problem 2:
      • Also after the move I no longer walked to class
      • Now I don’t use my IPod very often
      • It lost some of it’s reinforcing value
    • RECYCLE
      • The bigger of the two problems seemed to be not having the floss that I need
      • The solution: a contingency on buying new floss will be added
      • Deadline: end of the same day that I run out or misplace my floss
      • If I don’t buy a new container of floss by the deadline I will have to pay my performance manager $5
    • MY RESULTS
      • The intervention was a success.
      • I averaged close to 0 days per week during baseline
      • The intervention average was 96%
    • MY COMMENTS
      • The project was very beneficial
      • I don’t think that I would have kept up with the flossing otherwise
      • I plan to continue with the performance management contingency throughout the fall
      • Hopefully it will be just as effective as it has been
    • THANK YOU!! Any Questions or Comments?
