attached is the grading rubric and the case studies.

For this unit’s Assignment, you will use the concepts in this
course to analyze three case studies. You should rely on the textbook readings.
Be sure to include other outside research that is from peer-reviewed behavior
analytic journals. The case studies are located in the Course Documents area.

After reviewing each case study, write out the answers to the
following questions for each case:

Case 1: The Case of Bobby

1.Select and identify a
target behavior for increase in this case and provide an operational
definition.

2.Identify and discuss
the reinforcement system at work that is supporting the undesired target
behavior. Define operant conditioning and discuss how this method works to
increase desired behavior.

3.Select and outline a
reinforcement-based intervention for this case and include your rationale for
selection. Be sure to include a definition of positive reinforcement and
operant conditioning in your discussion.

Case 2: The Case of Jackie

1.Identify the target
behavior and provide an operational definition.

2.Both classical and
operant conditioning account for Jackie developing this phobia. Pick one and
use it to explain why Jackie has remained fearful of dogs.

3.What evidence-based
behavior modification program can be designed for Jackie so that she does not
experience fear when seeing dogs? What is your rationale for selection?

Case 3: The Case of Emma

1.Identify the target
behavior and provide an operational definition.

2.Discuss the principles
of operant conditioning that may be maintaining Emma’s current challenging
behavior.

3.Describe how you could
apply operant conditioning theory to create an evidence-based behavior
modification to address Emma’s behavior. Outline all components of the
procedure selected and be sure to provide the rationale for its selection based
on the information provided in #2.
