Group contingencies, used to change behavior, is an arrangement in which the consequences for group members depends largely on the behavior of the other group members. The consequences can be either reinforcing or punishing; the focus of this booklet is on positive reinforcement of behavior.
This booklet is designed to teach practitioners, including parents, procedures to use in managing the behaviors of children, students, and other persons whose behavior may be creating disruption or interference at home, at school, or on the job. The nontechnical, step-by-step instructional manual defines the procedure and provides numerous examples, and is flexible enough to be adapted to a number of different teaching situations and training environments.
