Question description

Read Case Study 2: Jon’s hair pulling

Jon is a 6-year-old boy, with normal intelligence, who has a hair-pulling habit. The hair pulling occurs most often during periods of inactivity, such as during TV watching, quiet time in school, or waiting in line with his parents.

Writea 2–3 page paper addressing the following:

Provide a 1–2 sentence operational definition for Jon’s target behavior. Write a 1–2 sentence operational definition that meets all of the following criteria:

  • observable
  • passes the “Dead Man’s” test and the “stranger” test
  • uses no labels or hypothetical constructs

Determine whether Jon’s target behavior is a behavior excess or behavior deficit. Think of the risks of not intervening in Jon’s case and respond to the following:

  • What are the short-term risks to Jon (in the next 3 months)?
  • What are the long-term risks to Jon (in the next 6–12 months)?

Design a habit reversal procedure for Jon describing all four components of habit reversal and how they would be implemented.

Include the following in your habit reversal procedure:

  • A specific competing response
  • Describe how you could include the use of a differential reinforcement procedure

*Note: Your description of differential reinforcement should include how to implement at least one of the differential reinforcement procedures from your reading (e.g., DRA, DRO, DRI, or DRL).

Suppose that Jon had an intellectual disability. Explain how your habit reversal procedure might change to increase its effectiveness. Include one evidence-based procedure from your reading for this week.
