Document Summary

Will you use punishment contingencies? (ie: loss of tokens) Preparation of a detailed manual for the token economy. Want naturally occurring reinforcers (ie: social reinforcement) to replace the tokens. Different strategies for weaning from tokens (ie: eliminate tokens gradually or decrease token value gradually). Token economies focus so much on external sources and less on intrinsic motivations. Need to clearly specify the problem as a behaviour to be controlled. Apply behaviour techniques to manage the problem. Individual needs to emit controlling behaviour to cause a change in their own behaviour. Collect data and assess causes of problem behaviour. Manage the antecedents (causes)----self-instruction, modelling, physical guidance, situational inducement. Manage the consequences (eliminate reinforcers of undesirable behaviour). Relapse=returning to the pre-intervention level of the unwanted behaviour. Can serve to support mastery behaviours that are being targeted within the social economy. Advantage: one person can be held responsible and accountable, and can be an expert at reinforcing that response.
