I’m studying for my Psychology class and need an explanation.
Part 1: Setting the Scene
You are a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) who is supervising a new, entry-level behavior technician, specifically a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). You are training the RBT to work with three of your clients. Two of the clients engage in escape behavior, while one engages in avoidance behavior. You have decided to cement the RBT’s understanding of escape behavior versus avoidance behavior using simple examples.
Part 2: Complete the Discussion Question Worksheets
Complete diagrams for each of the contingencies you created for this week’s primary discussion post. Attach your finalized worksheets as part of your final primary post.
Critique two classmates’ primary posts by analyzing the two scenarios regarding escape and avoidance contingencies:
Read the following:
Chapter 12 in Applied Behavior Analysis (3rd edition): “Negative Reinforcement”
The principle of negative reinforcement is discussed in terms of what it is and how it is both similar to, and different from, positive reinforcement. Escape and avoidance behaviors are discussed in terms of their association with negative reinforcement. How negative reinforcement can be used to produce desired and undesired behaviors is discussed, as is the ethical considerations involved in the use of negative reinforcement.
Chapter 4 in How to Think Like a Behavior Analyst: Understanding the Science that Can Change Your Life: “General Issues of Behavior”
Chapter 4 answers many of the questions budding behavior analysts and the public have about behavior analysis. The authors will discuss how behavior analysis is applied to groups, the importance of reinforcement histories; whether all behavior is learned; and replacing habit behaviors. It is an entertaining look at serious applied behavior analysis issues.
