Case Analysis

  1. Psychologists have used various theories of learning to treat different problems of children and adolescents. In one of such studies, a psychologist used learning theory to correct the behavior of a child named Raghu, who was showing disruptive behaviors in the classroom. At first, the psychologist observed his behavior for a certain duration to measure the types, intensity, and frequency of such disruptive behaviors. His observation revealed that major disruptive behaviors were talking with friends during class, not-attending lectures, creating unnecessary noise, pricking other students and showing aggressive behaviors towards friends and teachers. After the psychologist made a baseline idea, he introduced one plan in which Raghu would be given a token for showing desirable behavior (list of desirable behaviors in the classroom was given to Raghu). With that token, Raghu could request any of the foods available in the canteen. During the implementation of this strategy, Raghu sat in a relatively isolated position in the room adjacent to the teacher’s desk. Other students were requested to ignore Raghu if he shows any of the above mentioned disruptive behaviors within a couple of weeks. The result showed a dramatic improvement in his behavior within a week. Most of the behaviors were either corrected or were displayed in disruptive behaviors. A series of such studies was a milestone in the development of a field called Applied Behavioral Analysis.
  2. Which theory of learning do you think is the psychologist using? Explain.
  3. Based on the given case, illustrate steps in behavior modification.
  4. With the help of the above case, explain the concept and importance of reinforcement in behavior modification.

Can you use observation, learning theory to correct the behavior of Raghu? If so, what would be differences between the given approach and your new approach?
