Behavior modification case study, psychology homework help

For this unit’s Assignment, you will use the concepts in this course to analyze three case studies. You should rely on the textbook readings. Be sure to include other outside research that is from peer-reviewed behavior analytic journals. The case studies are located in the Doc Sharing area.

After reviewing each case study, write out the answers to the following questions for each case:

Case 1: The Case of Bobby

  1. Select and identify a target behavior for increase in this case and provide an operational definition.
  2. Identify and discuss the reinforcement system at work that is supporting the undesired target behavior. Define operant conditioning and discuss how this method works to increase desired behavior.
  3. Select and outline a reinforcement-based intervention for this case and include your rationale for selection. Be sure to include a definition of positive reinforcement and operant conditioning in your discussion.

Case 2: The Case of Jackie

  1. Identify the target behavior and provide an operational definition.
  2. Both classical and operant conditioning account for Jackie developing this phobia. Pick one and use it to explain why Jackie has remained fearful of dogs.
  3. What evidence-based behavior modification program can be designed for Jackie so that she does not experience fear when seeing dogs? What is your rationale for selection?

Case 3: The Case of Emma

  1. Identify the target behavior and provide an operational definition.
  2. Discuss the principles of operant conditioning that may be maintaining Emma’s current challenging behavior.
  3. Describe how you could apply operant conditioning theory to create an evidence-based behavior modification to address Emma’s behavior. Outline all components of the procedure selected and be sure to provide the rationale for its selection based on the information provided in #2.

Your Assignment should be 3–5 pages (not including your title page or references) in 12-point, Times New Roman font. Include citations to avoid plagiarism. It is always necessary to give the author credit.
