  47. 47. Behavior Basics: Dealing withProblem Behavior
  48. 48. ABC Analysis– Behavior can be looked at in terms of two other variables-- those that happen immediately before the behavior is emitted, and those that happen immediately after. This is called a contingency analysis. A B C– cue response result– antecedent behavior consequence
  49. 49. Arranging contingencies (the other C) When desired outcomes or events follow a behavior, that behavior becomes stronger SO, one way of changing behavior is to arrange or alter the natural circumstances by providing specific CONSEQUENCES, selected to increase, decrease, or maintain a behavior of interest.
  50. 50. The 4 Cs of Behavior Management Look at your CONSEQUENCES: Are you actually reinforcing/ discouraging the behavior you are addressing? Make the consequences immediate and CONTINGENT upon the occurrence of the behavior you are addressing Be CONSISTENT (across episodes, people and settings) with consequences CATCH the child being good
  51. 51. Remember… Communication problems often lead to behavior problems Lack of predictability often leads to behavior problems A history of using behavior problems effectively to control their environments leads to behavior problems
  52. 52. Strategies for Teaching Tolerance “Step over the body”  Make things FUN! Teach alternatives  Escape for completion Premack principle  “No pain, no gain” Systematic desensitization Redirection Marketing materials and activities
  53. 53. What is Functional Assessment? A way of looking at problems from a functional standpoint Does not focus on underlying feelings or emotions or disorders Requires gathering data and coming up with ideas about the function of the problem behavior Can be done by many different people
  54. 54. What are the functions ofbehavior? All behavior serves a function for the individual. Simple Functions – Escape/Avoid – Seek Attention – Make Demand – Stimulation
  55. 55. Functions of Behavior Simplified:ESCAPE: Getting out of a demand, activity, situation.MAKE DEMAND: Trying to get something desired.GET ATTENTION: Trying to secure attention from adults or peers.SELF STIMULATION: Just for the fun of it (would go on if everyone left the room).Think about the problem behaviors you encounter. Can you identify the function of these behaviors?
  56. 56. What do I do after I think I knowthe function? There is no cookbook answer, but these are some general guidelines – Manipulate the environment to prevent that function from being achieved or needed – Change your own behavior to make that function unnecessary – Teach alternative forms for the function
  57. 57. When the behavior serves a function of gettingattention: Ignore bad behavior (that is notdangerous) and give lots of praise for goodbehavior Quietly and unemotionally redirectdangerous behavior and arrange for preventionwhile attending to other good behavior.
  58. 58.  When the behavior serves the function of making a demand – Teach alternative way of communicating that demand – “Step over the body” – Play Dumb
  59. 59.  When the behavior serves a function of self stimulation: Keep the child engaged in appropriate play. Demonstrate HOW desired behavior looks. Identify other powerful reinforcers.
  60. 60.  When the behavior serves the function of escape – Follow through with demand, praise completion or attempt – Examine demand and adapt in the future to prevent the problem behavior
  61. 61. Logical Consequences Removal of materials used inappropriately Loss of privileges (response cost) Restricted access Loss of parent or teacher praise/attention
  62. 62. Positive Reinforcement Definition of positive reinforcement – Refers to relationship between behavior and a consequence – A positive reinforcer is the consequent event itself – Contingent on presentation of behavior Follows behavior – Increases probability of behavior occurring again
  63. 63. Effective Reinforcers Contingencies Immediately following behavior Have value Consistency Age appropriate Deprivation Satiation
  64. 64. Types of Reinforcers Primary – Tangible – Edible – Concrete Secondary (Conditioned) – Social stimuli – Symbolic such as tokens – Learned value
  65. 65. Types of Reinforcers Primary – Tangible – Edible – Concrete Secondary (Conditioned) – Social stimuli – Symbolic such as tokens – Learned value
  66. 66. Pairing When you combine a primary reinforcer with a secondary reinforcer you are pairing. Important to pair so you can condition the student to move from a primary level of reinforcement to a primary level of reinforcement – you gradually withdraw the primary reinforcer to maintain the behavior through secondary reinforcment
  67. 67. Stop and Think Get into groups of three. – Make a list of primary reinforcers you believe would work with elementary age students and give a rationale why. – Make a list of reinforcers you think will work with secondary aged students and provide a rationale why.
  68. 68. Premack Principle Grandma’s rule – Eat your vegetables and I will give you desert Engage in low preference behaviors before you engage in high preference behaviors Example: If student likes Math but does not feel good about reading, engage in reading first
  69. 69. Limitations (Kazdin, 2001) High preference activities can not always follow low-preference activities Activity may be all or nothing – either you earn the right to participate in field trip or you do not Activities may be freely available to students and therefore loose their value
  70. 70. Generalized Reinforcers A reinforcer associated with a variety of primary of secondary reinforcers Valued by association – e.g., praise from teacher has been paired with use of computer; praise from parent on a “good job” paired with a high-five Reinforcers that can be exchanged for something of value
  71. 71. Token Reinforcers Tokens have no value themselves but can be exchanged for something of value Must tie to behaviors you wish to observe Need to consider record keeping Need to consider trade in value Need to have backup reinforcers on hand for trade Store hours
  72. 72. Stop and Think You are teaching 23 students in a fourth grade classroom. You are concerned about the following behaviors: being late to class, not turning in homework, name calling and not having pencil and paper with them. Create a token economy to help you manage your classroom and change the behaviors you have observed need changing.
  73. 73. Contracts Written agreement between you and a student Includes behavior to be completed Has beginning and ending dates Is reasonable negotition between student and teacher Names exact reinforcer to be delivered upon completion of contract
  74. 74. Contracts Start small and for short periods of time Include interim review dates Reinforce movement towards contract completion Must be fair, clear, positive and honest Must be consistent and systematic
  75. 75. Schedules of Reinforcment Continuous Fixed Variable Time vs Behavior
  76. 76. Schedules of Reinforcement -Continuous Following every instance you observe the desired behavior you reinforce it
  77. 77. Schedules of Reinforcement- Ratioand Interval • Ratio  Fixed ratio – specific number of responses receive reinforcer • Interval  Fixed interval – student reinforced the first time behavior is observed and then again after a lapsed amount of time  Variable interval – vary the time of reinforcemnt delivery  Limited hold – short window of time to exhibit behavior to receive reinforcer
  78. 78. Negative reinforcement Removal of aversive stimuli immediately following the contingent behavior Cycle of negative reinforcement – Student is confronted with aversive stimuli – Student engages in inappropriate behavior – Teacher remove aversive stimuli – Student is negatively reinforced for inappropriate behavior – Next time behavior exhibits, cycle repeats
  79. 79. Natural Consequences Reinforcement that occurs naturally – all behavior has consequence unless you structure the environment to deliver consequences student prefers, natural consequences will happen
  80. 80. What about punishment? Negative side effects Limited effectiveness Models aggression as a way of dealing with problems Results in a repeated cycle Results in learning and emotional problems in adolescence and adulthood
