Restricted stimulus control refers to discrimination learning with atypical limitations in the range of controlling stimuli or stimulus features In the study reported here 4 normally capable individuals and 10 individuals with Intellectual disabilities (ID) performed two-sample delayed matching to sample Sample stimulus observing was recorded with an eye tracking apparatus High accuracy scores indicated stimulus control by both sample stimuli for the 4 nondisabled participants and 4 participants with ID and eye tracking data showed reliable observing of all stimuli Intermediate accuracy scores indicated restricted stimulus control for the remaining 6 participants Their eye tracking data showed that errors were related to failures to observe sample stimuli and relatively brief observing durations Five of these participants were then given interventions designed to improve observing behavior For 4 participants the interventions resulted initially in elimination of observing failures increased observing durations and Increased accuracy For 2 of these participants contingencies sufficient to maintain adequate observing were not always sufficient to maintain high accuracy subsequent procedure modifications restored It however For the 5th participant initial improvements in observing were not accompanied by improved accuracy in apparent Instance of observing without attending accuracy improved only after an additional intervention that imposed contingencies on observing behavior Thus interventions that control observing behavior seem necessary but may not always be sufficient for the remediation of restricted stimulus control; National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NIH); National Institute of Child Health und Hum in Development (NIH)[P30 HD004147]; National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NIH); National Institute of Child Health und Hum in Development (NIH)[P01 HD025995]; National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NIH); National Institute of Child Health und Hum in Development (NIH)[R01 HD037055]

Não há consenso entre os estudos quanto à associação entre a presença de problemas de comportamento e resultados piores no tratamento com alarme para enurese. O objetivo do presente estudo foi investigar a ocorrência de associações entre a presença de problemas de comportamento e os resultados do tratamento com alarme para enurese primária com acompanhamento semanal de um terapeuta. Os participantes foram 20 crianças com enurese primária, 13 do sexo masculino e 7, do sexo feminino, com idades entre seis e dez anos. Metade das crianças apresentava escores clínicos indicativos de problemas de comportamento segundo o Child Behavior Checklist. As oito crianças sem problemas de comportamento que concluíram o tratamento alcançaram o critério de sucesso inicial (14 noites secas consecutivas) e apenas duas desistiram. Das dez crianças com problemas de comportamento, somente metade atingiu o sucesso inicial, quatro desistiram e uma completou o período de tratamento e não obteve sucesso. Essas diferenças nos resultados finais não foram significativas em termos estatísticos. Também não foram encontradas diferenças significativas nas taxas de recaídas entre as crianças com e sem problemas de comportamento. Quatro das oito crianças sem problemas de comportamento que haviam alcançado o critério de sucesso inicial apresentaram recaídas e quatro conseguiram manter o controle noturno adquirido. Das cinco crianças com problemas de comportamento que alcançaram o sucesso inicial...

O comportamento "barebacking" é definido como o intercurso sexual anal entre homens que fazem sexo com homens (HSH) que decidem intencionalmente não usar preservativos, no contexto de risco do HIV. O comportamento sexual compulsivo (CSC) pode agir na motivação do comportamento "barebacking", aumentando o risco de transmissão do HIV, sendo que no Brasil a prevalência do HIV entre HSH é de 10,5%. Objetivos: estimar a frequência do comportamento "barebacking" nos HSH compulsivos sexuais, e investigar a associação do comportamento "barebacking" com: infecção pelo HIV; comportamento sexual de risco; severidade do CSC; transtorno associado ao uso de álcool e drogas; grau de otimismo em relação ao tratamento do HIV; capacidade de vinculação afetiva tipo segura; consolidação da identidade; e as seguintes dimensões de personalidade: busca de novidades, esquiva ao dano, dependência de gratificação e autodirecionamento. Métodos: estudo transversal realizado em amostra de HSH que buscaram tratamento para o CSC. Participaram 55 homens compulsivos sexuais, sendo que 21 apresentavam o comportamento "barebacking" e 34 não. Foram avaliados em entrevista psiquiátrica para verificação dos critérios de elegibilidade (critérios de dependência de sexo e de Impulso Sexual Excessivo...

O objetivo desta tese foi verificar se o perfil do empreendedor e seu respectivo comportamento durante o processo empreendedor (processo de criação da empresa) influenciavam o desempenho da empresa criada. Para viabilizar o alcance do seu objetivo, inicialmente verificou-se o tipo de perfil e o respectivo tipo de comportamento predominantes na amostra analisada. O método principal utilizado na pesquisa é descritivo, sendo esta preponderantemente quantitativa. O perfil empreendedor foi medido com o instrumento proposto por McClelland (1987) e o comportamento do empreendedor foi medido por um instrumento criado e proposto pelo autor, visando entender o comportamento explicitado durante a criação da empresa, entre dois extremos, o causal e o effectual. Para identificar o conjunto de características mais presentes no perfil e o comportamento predominante em cada atividade do processo empreendedor foram utilizadas estatísticas descritivas. Na sequência, a análise de clusters foi realizada para identificar a existência de diferentes tipos de comportamento empreendedor. No entanto, para atingir o principal objetivo a técnica utilizada foi a modelagem de equações estruturais, mais especificamente o método de partial least square (PLS-SEM). Os dados foram coletados por meio de um questionário auto-administrado enviado por meio eletrônico para mais de 100.000 pessoas cadastradas em um dos principais sítios brasileiros de auxílio a empreendedores...

Tese (doutorado)—Universidade de Brasília, Instituto de Psicologia, Programa de Pós-Graduação Processos de Desenvolvimento Humano e Saúde, 2009.; A Teoria dos Behavior Settings, criada pelo psicólogo Roger Barker, explica a fenomênica integração entre padrões estáveis de comportamento grupal e individual, e o ambiente físico onde esse comportamento ocorre. Esses padrões são a base comportamental das sociedades organizadas, urbanas, e devem ser considerados no planejamento e projeto de edifícios, vizinhanças urbanas e cidades. Contudo, essa teoria ainda apresenta sérias limitações quanto à sua aplicação no projeto físico, em diversos níveis ecológicos. Este estudo pretende desenvolver uma abordagem mais compreensiva, com o objetivo de integrar os fenômenos relacionados aos behavior settings individuais e às redes de behavior settings num só corpo teórico, como um passo na direção de uma teoria que explique as relações entre os comportamentos individual e grupal e o ambiente físico no nível ecológico das cidades. Na atualidade, a Teoria dos Behavior Settings ainda não explica as redes de settings como estruturas ecológicas molares de um nível abrangente, com dinâmicas específicas. Um discípulo de Barker...

The experimental analysis of delay of reinforcement is considered from the perspective of three questions that seem basic not only to understanding delay of reinforcement, but, also, by implication, the contributions of temporal relations between events to operant behavior. The first question is whether effects of the temporal relation between responses and reinforcers can be isolated from other features of the environment that often accompany delays, such as stimuli or changes in the temporal distribution or rate of reinforcement. The second question is that of the effects of delays on operant behavior. Beyond the common denominator of a temporal separation between reinforcers and the responses that produce them, delay of reinforcement procedures differ from one another along several dimensions, making delay effects circumstance dependent. The final question is one of interpreting delay of reinforcement effects. It centers on the role of the response–reinforcer temporal relation in the context of other, concurrently operating behavioral processes.

Behavior analysis has exploited conceptual tools whose experimental validity has been amply demonstrated, but their relevance to large-scale and fine-grained behavioral phenomena remains uncertain, because the experimental analysis of these domains faces formidable obstacles of measurement and control. In this essay I suggest that, at least at the fine-grained end of the behavioral spectrum, we have not taken sufficient advantage of all available procedures. Specifically, I propose that an examination of eye movements, joint control, and response latency in intraverbal tasks might help us to formulate more complete accounts of complex human behavior.

The experimental analysis of behavior began as an inductively oriented, empirically based scientific field. As the field grew, its distinctive system of science—radical behaviorism—grew with it. The continuing growth of the empirical base of the field has been accompanied by the growth of the literature on radical behaviorism and its implications. In this article the case is made that radical behaviorism is more than an abstract description of the assumptions and practices of the field; it is an active area of research within the field itself, and that such theoretical research is of great importance to the development of the field. Some of the characteristics of radical behaviorism are described in brief, along with the functions of organization, clarification, and extension of various aspects of behavior-analytic science. Research examples are given from the areas of work on the system itself, behavior-analytic theory, and implications of behavior analysis for issues and findings in other fields. The unique characteristics of radical behaviorism provide an integrative and generative scientific framework for the continuing development of behavior analysis.

A task force authorized by the Executive Council of the Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) generated the statement below concerning the techniques called restraint and seclusion. Members of the task force independently reviewed the scientific literature concerning restraint and seclusion and agreed unanimously to the content of the statement. The Executive Council accepted the statement, and it was subsequently approved by a two-thirds majority vote of the general membership. It now constitutes official ABAI policy. The position statement is posted on the ABAI Web site (www.abainternational.org/ABA/statements/RestraintSeclusion.asp). The purpose of the position statement is to provide guidance to behavior analysts and other professionals interested in the position of ABAI on these controversial topics. In extreme cases, abuses of procedures erroneously used in the name of behavior analysis are not defensible. On the other hand, behavior analysts acting ethically and in good faith are provided with guidelines for sound and acceptably safe practice. To the extent that behavior-analytic positions influence public policy and law, this statement can be presented to officials and lawmakers to guide informed decision making. At the conclusion of the document...

The detection and subsequent removal of land mines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) from many developing countries are slow, expensive, and dangerous tasks, but have the potential to improve the well-being of millions of people. Consequently, those involved with humanitarian mine and UXO clearance are actively searching for new and more efficient detection technologies. Remote explosive scent tracing (REST) using trained dogs has the potential to be one such technology. However, details regarding how best to train, test, and deploy dogs in this role have never been made publicly available. This article describes how the key characteristics of applied behavior analysis, as described by Baer, Wolf and Risley (1968, 1987), served as important objectives for the research and development of the behavioral technology component of REST while the author worked in humanitarian demining.

For many years, it has been suggested that drugs that interfere with dopamine (DA) transmission alter the “rewarding” impact of primary reinforcers such as food. Research and theory related to the functions of mesolimbic DA are undergoing a substantial conceptual restructuring, with the traditional emphasis on hedonia and primary reward yielding to other concepts and lines of inquiry. The present review is focused upon the involvement of nucleus accumbens DA in effort-related choice behavior. Viewed from the framework of behavioral economics, the effects of accumbens DA depletions and antagonism on food-reinforced behavior are highly dependent upon the work requirements of the instrumental task, and DA-depleted rats show a heightened sensitivity to response costs, especially ratio requirements. Moreover, interference with accumbens DA transmission exerts a powerful influence over effort-related choice behavior. Rats with accumbens DA depletions or antagonism reallocate their instrumental behavior away from food-reinforced tasks that have high response requirements, and show increased selection of low reinforcement/low cost options. Nucleus accumbens DA and adenosine interact in the regulation of effort-related functions, and other brain structures (anterior cingulate cortex...

Twenty years ago Michael (1993) refined and extended the concept of the conditioned establishing operation (CEO). With this paper he updated his previous treatment of the topic (Michael, 1982) by providing terminological refinements and conceptually clear descriptions of the reflexive and transitive CEOs. In the 20 years since the publication of that paper there has been an increase in the application of CEOs as independent variables in the teaching of verbal behavior in applied setting. The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief overview of clinical applications of the EO to the teaching of verbal behavior during the last 20 years.

One of the most challenging aspects faced by pediatric dentists is behavior management. Child behavior in the dental setting is a multifactorial phenomenon and studies have suggested that some factors may predict children s behavior in dental settings. Thus, this dissertation aimed to assess the behavior of children during sequential dental visits according to the treatment the child received, as well as to investigate the factors that can influence the behavior of children during dental treatment. A convenience sample of children aged from 7-to-13 years old attending a Pediatric Dentistry Clinic was accompanied during 4 sequential visits. Behavior was classified according to Frankl s scale. Mothers and children were interviewed previously to the 1st visit to collect information on demographic, socioeconomic and psychosocial characteristics. The complexity of treatment in each visit was classified as minimally invasive, invasive or very invasive. Behavior trajectory following the visits was assessed. To test the association of the independent variables and behavior Chi-squared and Fisher s exact tests were used. To determine the effect of the variables on the outcome behavior, crude and adjusted Poisson regression analyses were used (Relative Risk; 95% Confidence Interval). The level of significance was set at 5%. A total of 111 mother-child dyads were included. The behavior at the first visit was 100% positive for all children. In the trajectory of behavior during the sequential visits...

One of the most fundamental principles in system dynamics is the premise that the structure of the system will generate its behavior. Such philosophical position has fostered the development of a number of formal methods aimed at understanding the causes of model behavior. To most in the field of system dynamics, behavior is commonly understood as modes of behavior (e.g., exponential growth, exponential decay, and oscillation) because of their direct association with the feedback loops (e.g., reinforcing, balancing, and balancing with delays, respectively) that generate them. Hence, traditional research on formal model analysis has emphasized which loops cause a particular “mode” of behavior, with eigenvalues representing the most important link between structure and behavior. The main contribution of this work arises from a choice to focus our analysis in the overall trajectory of a state variable – a broader definition of behavior than that of a specific behavior mode. When we consider overall behavior trajectories, contributions from eigenvectors are just as central as those from eigenvalues. Our approach to understanding model behavior derives an equation describing overall behavior trajectories in terms of both eigenvalues and eigenvectors. We then use the derivatives of both eigenvalues and eigenvectors with respect to link (or loop) gains to measure how they affect overall behavior trajectories over time. The direct consequence of focusing on behavior trajectories is that system dynamics researchers' reliance on eigenvalue elasticities can be seen as too-narrow a focus on model behavior – a focus that has excluded the short term impact of a change in loop (or link) gain in its analysis.

Skinner discussed the topic of motivation in every chapter of the book Verbal Behavior (1957), usually with his preferred terminology of “deprivation, satiation, and aversive stimulation.” In the current paper, direct quotations are used to systematically take the reader through 30 separate points made by Skinner in Verbal Behavior that collectively provide a comprehensive analysis of his position regarding the role of motivation in behavior analysis. In addition, various refinements and extensions of Skinner's analysis by Jack Michael and colleagues (Laraway, Snycerski, Michael, & Poling, 2003; Michael, 1982, 1988, 1993, 2000, 2004, 2007) are incorporated, along with suggestions for research and applications for several of the points.

The production of verbal operants not previously taught is an important aspect of language productivity. For Skinner, new mands, tacts, and autoclitics result from the recombination of verbal operants. The relation between these mands, tacts, and autoclitics is what linguists call analogy, a grammatical pattern that serves as a foundation on which a speaker might emit new linguistic forms. Analogy appears in linguistics as a regularity principle that characterizes language and has been related to how languages change and also to creativity. The approaches of neogrammarians like Hermann Paul, as well as those of Jespersen and Bloomfield, appear to have influenced Skinner's understanding of verbal creativity. Generalization and stimulus equivalence are behavioral processes related to the generative grammatical behavior described in the analogy model. Linguistic forms and grammatical patterns described in analogy are part of the contingencies of reinforcement that produce generalization and stimulus equivalence. The analysis of verbal behavior needs linguistic analyses of the constituents of linguistic forms and their combination patterns.

Behavior analysis as a discipline currently is doing relatively well. How it will do in the future is unclear and depends on how the field, and the world at large, changes. Five current characteristics of the discipline that appear to reduce the probability that it will survive and prosper are discussed and suggestions for improvement are offered. The areas of concern are (a) the small size and limited power of the discipline, (b) the growing focus of applied behavior analysis on autism spectrum disorders and little else, (c) the esoteric nature of much basic research, (d) the proliferation of “applied” research that really isn't applied, and (e) the widespread use of imprecise and potentially harmful technical language.

Zen's challenge for behavior analysis is to explain a repertoire that renders analysis itself meaningless—a result following not from scientific or philosophical arguments but rather from a unique verbal history generated by Zen's methods. Untying Zen's verbal knots suggests how meditation's and koans' effects on verbal behavior contribute to Enlightenment and Samādhi. The concept of stimulus singularity is introduced to account for why, within Zen's frame of reference, its methods can be studied but its primary outcomes (e.g., Samādhi and Satori) cannot be described in any conventional sense.

BACKGROUND While there is strong support for the benefits of working in multi-professional teams in health care, the implementation of multi-professional teamwork is reported to be complex and challenging. Implementation strategies combining multiple behavior change interventions are recommended, but the understanding of how and why the behavior change interventions influence staff behavior is limited. There is a lack of studies focusing on the functions of different behavior change interventions and the mechanisms driving behavior change. In this study, applied behavior analysis is used to analyze the function and impact of different behavior change interventions when implementing multi-professional teamwork. METHODS A comparative case study design was applied. Two sections of an emergency department implemented multi-professional teamwork involving changes in work processes, aimed at increasing inter-professional collaboration. Behavior change interventions and staff behavior change were studied using observations, interviews and document analysis. Using a hybrid thematic analysis, the behavior change interventions were categorized according to the DCOM® model. The functions of the behavior change interventions were then analyzed using applied behavior analysis. RESULTS The two sections used different behavior change interventions...
