Punishment shud only occur as it is needed.
If you are using punishment, this shud be ur last resort. This can have harmful effect: eg.. Injury to skin
or tissue. In terms of ethical issue, you have to have the consent to sign from guardian or the adult.
Despite the fact, these alternative behavior might not be effective you shud present them.
If the problem sufficiently sever to actually warned the punishment intervention. But that doesn’t mean
that you use it for everything. We have guideline to use every type of punishment. Ex . Institution
rotenburg center- huge staff was involved. All these ppel are used these devices GED etc. peer review
board is imp as well. A number of individual participate and see if your approach is sound and whether
the procedure shud be implemented.
Child eating chips. They are been observed by hospital medical staff. They see that these kids re putting
things in their mouth. One child put lego in their mouth and some suck their thumb. The individual
inside hospital don’t want the behavior to still occur in its natural environment. Depending on where the
person is . You wanna create a reinforcing environment including praise. You have to have context to do
it. You can have the praising environment. You have to address the problematic behavior. You imaging
the child put the chip in the mouth, you stop this kid by holding his hand, this is called response
interruption. You are stopping at right brief mode. So you have to be diligent to catch that behavior. You
have to hold the arms so this is very punishing procedure. You necessary cant articulate. What are ABC’s
here? A = presence of chips B=bringing to the mouth C = sensation of putting in mouth. With the
intervention -> A = blocking the person’s mouth B= holding the person physically C= that would be
aversive for the kid.
You respond the same way as other. If object is similar enough, they are gonna name both of those
object same . A child learning to speak, if he sees the big dog and a small dog, would he call both the
dog? Not necessarily, bcz they are still learning. so how the generalization occurs.
Make sure the target behavior occur in natural envionrment. E.g abduction . We don’t know if the
person is gonna respond really that way after the intervention, individual with mental disability. You
need to keep things in mind.
Response generalization – someone could learn before how to approach the opposite sex. She will might
thing that he is cute. So she is not only using the generalization but adapting at the same time.
Assertiveness training & learning to play how to catch the football. This training is usually happening in
separate environment. E.g if Maria goes to the office and the intervention is not generalized, it’s not
working. Just bcz you catch a football when dad throws it. This doesn’t mean that he is the quarter back
in the game, diff throwing style, trajectory & speed.
A metropolinitaria – you wanna train skills that come in natural environment – meaning you want the
person to use the skills learned in the class to a broader and to solicit reinforcement. Ex child wants to get the reinforcement: you can get them to solicit the reinforcement and do it in more pro social
fashion. If you have the opportunity to modify the environment , you can really improve somebody’s
behavior. You can get the people to interact for a better.
Ex willy makes sexist comments when a women ask him to clean up the room. Ther natural
