This course explores the various procedures that may be employed to change behavior that address the postcedent environment, that is, the consequences. This includes the general strategic choice to promote tolerance or replace the escape behavior, as well as response effort control, extinction/preclusion.chain interruption, differential reinforcement procedures and differential reinforcement-like procedures. Both differential added reinforcement and differential subtracted reinforcement are covered, as is added punishment and how best to avoid its use. Tolerance vs replacement escape as general strategies Manipulating response effort Extinction and chain interruption (vs. exclusion) Differential reinforcement (DRI, DRO, DRA, DRL) DRI/DRA for access-functional behaviors DRI/DRA-like procedures for escape-functional behaviors DRO for access-functional behaviors DRO-like procedure for escape-functional behaviors Graded differential subtracted reinforcement of other behaviors (tolerance training) Added punishment and how to avoid resorting to coercive methods Steps for applying differential reinforcement procedures
