This course explores the various procedures that may be employed to change behavior that address the antecedent environment. This includes evocative stimulus control procedures and function-altering stimulus control procedures. The procedures correspond to which of the two major classes of antecedent stimulation influence behavior. This course includes discussion of changing emotional behaviors that act as motivating operations for problematic operant behaviors. Evocative stimulus control procedures Preclusion The graded (errorless) approach Environment enrichment Non-contingent functional reinforcement (NCR) Eliminating establishing operations (and dealing with emotional behaviors) Flooding and graded exposure and response prevention and why they are best avoided Respondent counterconditioning as byproduct of added reinforcement-emphasized procedures Function-altering stimulus control procedures The role of medication and supplementation Rehabilitating “conditioned helplessness” and/or “response depression”
