Adolescent Safety Behaviors and Social Anxiety: Links to Psychosocial Impairments and Functioning with Unfamiliar Peer Confederates.

Hide Okuno, Taylor Rezeppa, Tabitha Raskin, Andres De Los Reyes,

Socially anxious adolescents often endure anxiety-provoking situations using <i>safety behaviors</i>: strategies for minimizing in-the-moment distress (e.g., avoiding eye contact, rehearsing statements before entering a conversation). Studies linking safety behaviors to impaired functioning have largely focused on adults. In a sample of one hundred thirty-four 14 to 15 year-old adolescents, we ... Read more >>

The Impact of Integrated Support and Context on Treatment Implementation and Child Outcomes Following Behavioral Consultation.

George Noell, Kristin Gansle, Veronica Gulley,

Assuring treatment plan implementation following consultation is critically important because implementation is strongly related to outcomes. Treatment implementation has been hypothesized to be influenced by both the nature of the follow-up support provided and contextual variables. However, studies to date have not examined both issues while directly measuring implementation. This ... Read more >>

Schedule Thinning Following Functional Communication Training: Effects of Chained and Multiple Schedules.

Nadrat N Nuhu, Sacha T Pence,

Functional communication training (FCT) is used to reduce rates of problem behavior by teaching communicative responses that access functionally equivalent reinforcers. During FCT, the communicative response is typically placed on a dense schedule of reinforcement that is unlikely to be maintained in the natural environment. Experiment 1 evaluated the effects ...
