RBT Behavior Reduction Test #1
What part of a behavior intervention plan defines what to do if a client's behavioral behaviors endanger him or others in the environment?
The crisis plan outlines what to do in the event of a behavioral emergency. A behavioral emergency occurs when the client or others could be in danger. The crisis plan is included exclusively to ensure safety and is not part of the main therapeutic treatment plan.
"Property destruction is maintained by positive reinforcement in the form of access to attention," according to a sample behavior intervention plan (BIP). What crucial component of a behavior intervention strategy is likely to include this?
The function(s) of problem behavior should always be included in the behavior intervention plan (BIP). This helps therapists understand why particular replacement behaviors were chosen and why certain consequence modifications were implemented.
A(n) _________ is a written document that describes ways for reducing problem behavior and promoting functionally similar replacement behaviors.
A behavior intervention plan (B|P) is a document that outlines the procedures for reducing problem behavior and increasing functionally equivalent responses. Another phrase for a behavior reduction strategy is a behavior support plan.
A clear, customized, detailed description of the issue behavior and how data is collected is a key component of what type of behavior intervention plan?
The operational characterization of the issue behavior should always be included in the behavior intervention plan (BIP). This enables therapists to obtain reliable data on the behavior and administer appropriate consequences as soon as the problem behavior arises.
Non-socially mediated consequences are denoted by _______, whereas socially mediated effects are denoted by _____ .
Non-socially mediated effects are referred to as automatic. In other words, the behavior generates its own reinforcer. For example, taking medication automatically relieves pain – no one else is required to achieve this result. Social, on the other hand, refers to socially mediated outcomes. For example, if a youngster requests medication and the parent gives the prescription, it is social because someone else is responsible for the result.
Procedures undertaken before a problem behavior to prevent the behavior from developing are what crucial component of a behavior intervention plan?
Antecedent modifications are procedures that are conducted prior to the occurrence of a problem behavior and are intended to prevent the occurrence of a problem behavior in the first place.
What component of a behavior intervention plan defines which behaviors the client should be taught?
Every behavior intervention plan (BIP) should include a section on replacement behaviors, which teaches the client how to get reinforcers in a more suitable way than through problem behavior. For example, if a client engages in problem behavior to avoid doing schoolwork, the client may be taught how to properly request breaks.
The addition of a stimulus is referred to as _________, whereas the removal of a stimulus is referred to as_______.
Positive refers to the addition of a stimulus in applied behavior analysis (ABA). When you ask a pa rent respectfully for meals, for example, food is delivered. The removal of a stimulus is referred to as negative. Requesting a break from homework, for example, leads in the task demands being removed.
Procedures performed after a problem behavior to reduce the risk of the behavior occurring again in the future are what crucial component of a behavior intervention plan?
Procedures that occur after a problem behavior and are intended to reduce the incidence of problem behaviors in the future are known as consequence adjustments. Extinction for problem habits is commonly used to accomplish this.
What behavioral principle best captures the behavioral consequence of a problem behavior maintained by attention?
Positive reinforcement happens when a problem conduct is used to get attention. If the father attends to the tantrums, then the father's attention is contributed (thus positive), and if the behavior repeats itself in the future, then reinforcement has taken place.
What type of behavior is sustained through social interactions (e.g., tickles, surprise, chasing, and so on)?
The attention function outlines how social interactions maintain behavior. The term "attention" implies the purpose of the behavior.
What relationship should a functionally equivalent alternative reaction (F=AR; AKA replacement behavior) have to its corresponding issue behavior?
The function of problem behavior should always match the F=AR, or replacement behavior. Instead of trying to gain attention, the youngster could be taught to make proper requests for attention.
