emphasizes on analyzing environmental events that relate to behavior
provides specific behavior planning
plans are implemented by people in the natural environment
measurement is used to document bahavior change
strategies that focus on structuring and modifying the environment and conditions that occur before a behavior so that the behavior is less likely to occur.
when a behavior is emitted more often in the presence of a particular discriminative stimuli or SD than in its absence, it is said to be under
behavior reduction procedure in which a reinforcing stimulus is removed following the target behavior
consists of observing the behavior and recording it as it occurs.
behavior is observed continuously thru out the observation period and each instance of the behavior is recorded immediately as it occurs
one of the most common ways to assess behavioral change. it is used for behaviors that have a clear beginning and a clear end.
a direct measurement technique bc it also involves recording behavior as it occurs. consists of dividing the observation period into equal intervals that continuously follow each other.
partial interval recording
involves checking off an interval at any point within the interval. even if occurred only for 1 second. Over exaggeration of an occurring behavior. best used for behaviors you are trying to decrease
involves checking off an interval if the behavior occurs thru out the whole interval. (if it occurs for but the last few seconds you would not mark occurrence.) underestimates the occurring behavior. best used for behaviors you are trying to increase.
