Example text

At this point, research shows that cooperative children can use self-management techniques to produce desirable changes in their own behaviors; and the extent of these changes is about as noteworthy as those produced by caregiver control of contingencies. Obviously, the clinical practitioner needs to know more about how these two strategies interact. Before moving on to the final section of this chapter, note should be taken of treatment considerations for special childhood disorders. In those disorders characterized by severe and chronic behavior deficits such as autism, far more intensive teaching procedures must be added to the above strategies.

Ideally, then, the mediators should become capable of sustaining these 34 WAHLER consultant-taught contingencies. The task-setting contingencies will then be largely complete, although periodic monitoring checks by the consultant should be followed as a rule of thumb (Patterson, 1974). When the troubled child is expected to take part in contingency setting, some changes in the above procedures are necessary. The cooperative child as self-manager will be required to complete several steps as outlined by Mahoney (1974).

While others can and should contribute advice, the responsibility message should be loud and clear: if self-management is to become a part of treatment, the child has full control over this intervention. When the goal-setting operation is concluded, the consultant must temper any previously discussed caregiver roles in treatment. In other words, the caregiver as mediator is largely incompatible with the self-management procedures to follow. Rather than having these adults function as the controllers of reinforcement, they should merely make these events available to the child.
