Document Summary

Many situations call for complex behaviours that have multiple component responses. Behavioral chain- a complex behaviour consisting of many component behaviours that occur together in a sequence. When you want a piece of gun: reach in your pocket, pull out the pack of gum Getting apiece of gum involves atleast 5 behaviours which must occur together in correct sequence. You can engage in a particular behaviour in the sequence only if the previous behaviour in the sequence has been completed. Each behavioural chain consists of a number of individual stimulus-response components that occur together in a sequence. Hence, a behavioural chain is called a stimulus-response chain. The first response produces an sd for the second response in the sequence and so on until all the responses in the chain occur in order. Hence, the first response in the chain occurs when a particular s is presented.
