Ethics for Behavior Analysts

 

This Assignment consists of an analysis of questions related to two separate case studies. Each case presents a problem that you, the future behavior analyst, will need to assess. In order for you to accomplish this, you will design an effective (hypothetical) behavior modification program based on your hypothesized function of the target behavior and a plan to evaluate this modification program. You will draw upon the scientific method of inquiry to guide you in this Assignment.

Prepare for the analysis questions by completing the following for each case study:

  • Provide a full and accurate description of the target behavior for each case and the rationale for selection.
  • For each case, provide a hypothesis of the reinforcement contingencies maintaining the behavior. Based on this hypothesis, discuss why the previous interventions may not have been successful.
  • Next, use operant conditioning techniques to provide an accurate and thorough behavior modification for each case based on the hypothesis above. Be sure to discuss this in the context of the use single-subject designs in behavior analysis and how the individual serves as his or her own control.
  • Finally, you will discuss the assessment of each behavior modification plan by describing how you will determine if the selected behavior modification plan was effective (be sure to outline the dimension of behavior(s) you are measuring and how you will make a data-based conclusions on the progress)

Each case covers the theories, concepts, and research that you have learned about this term. Your written Assignment should consist of information mainly from the two texts. If necessary you may use supplemental readings. All supplementary material should be from peer-reviewed behavior analytic journals only.

After reading each case and conducting the analysis as guided above, please fully provide the information listed below.

 Your answers should be 3 to 4 pages for each case in order to address all required parts of the Assignment.

Case 1: The Case of Emily

 

1. Briefly recap the case and identify the most important target behavior. Provide a clear definition and why it is important to target this behavior.

2. Discuss which inadvertent reinforcement strategy may have contributed to Emily’s school refusal and why. Formulate a hypothesis regarding what intervention will result in a specific level and direction of desired change in the target behavior

3. Choose an effective behavior modification program to help Emily’s parents to help her improve her target behavior and to test your previously stated hypothesis. Discuss why you chose that program and how you would implement the strategy.

4. Discuss how you will monitor the program and analyze the results. Make sure to include what you would consider to be a successful intervention. Discuss changes you could make to the plan if the expected outcome was not attained.

Case 2: The Case of Mr. Smith

 

1. Briefly recap the case and identify the most important target behavior. Provide a clear definition and why it is important to target this behavior.

2. Discuss why Mr. Smith’s previous interventions may not have been successful. Formulate a hypothesis regarding what intervention will result in a specific level and direction of desired change in the target behavior.

3. Choose an effective behavior modification program to help Mr. Smith with his company and to test your previously stated hypothesis. Discuss why you chose that program and how you would implement the strategy.

4. Discuss how you will monitor the program and analyze the results. Make sure to include what you would consider to be a successful intervention.
