ID: PS512-05-07-D

STAY WITHIN THE CONFINES OF  APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS IN YOUR REFERENCES (ABA ) NOT GENERAL PSYCOLOGY this discussion is specific for APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALISIS

Address the topics below. Your original response should be at least 350 words and should reflect the fact that you have completed the assigned readings for the week. Remember, this is your chance to illustrate not only your understanding, but also your mastery of the materials for the unit. Use your words wisely so the posting has substance and includes examples and explanations. Limit the use of direct quotes, and do your best to critically synthesize and evaluate the literature in your own words wherever possible. Make sure to include in-text citations and a reference list as appropriate.

1.  Discussion topic 1 of 2

Select one of the alternating treatments designs that you read about this week, and develop a hypothetical study that uses this method to compare and contrast the effectiveness of two different weight loss techniques. Be creative! Weight, of course, changes too slowly to be useful as a dependent variable in an alternating treatments design, nor is weight a direct measure of behavior. Therefore, do not choose weight itself as your dependent variable, but something truly behavioral such as minutes of exercise or calories eaten. Then, once you have your study designed, answer the following questions about your study. Why did you select this particular alternating treatments design? What are some threats to both the internal and external validity of your design? How might you work around these issues? Describe how, for the purposes of this particular study, the alternating treatments method would be an improvement over the multiple baseline method that you read about last week.

2.  Discussion topic 2 of 2

How do ethical concerns influence the different alternating treatments designs that researchers use? Provide a real life example of each of the alternating treatments methods; use a different setting for each example (e.g., work, school, clinic, etc.) and explain how ethical, legal, and sociocultural considerations could influence the decision to use one alternating treatments design over another.

3.  Discussion topic 1 of 2:

Using the readings as a guide, conduct a comprehensive functional assessment of the target behavior you identified in Unit 1. This should include observation of the target behavior, forming a hypothesis about the function of the target behavior, testing your hypothesis, and developing of a behavior intervention plan based on the results of the functional assessment. Post your initial impression regarding the primary function of the target behavior (i.e., discuss your hypothesis following your initial observations of the behavior). Discuss any data you have collected and analyzed. Be sure to include any specific antecedents and consequences you have identified that might contribute to the occurrence or absence of the target behavior.

4.  Discussion topic 2 of 2:

Imagine you are working with an individual with severe developmental and intellectual disabilities who has recently begun to slap her face. This is a new behavior and she is able to communicate why she is engaging in this behavior. What steps would you take to complete a functional assessment? What are the most likely functions you should consider when developing your hypotheses? How would you test your hypotheses? Why would it be important to conduct a functional assessment in this situation?
