Example text

You may be interested in the number of tantrums per day (frequency), but you may also be interested in how long each tantrum lasts (duration). Finally, you may be interested in how loud the child screams or how forcefully the child throws toys or slams doors (intensity). We hope that, after treatment, the tantrums will decrease in frequency, duration, and intensity; that is, they will occur less often, will not last as long, and will not be as loud or violent. Unless you measure the right dimension of a behavior, you may not be able to judge the effectiveness of treatment.

Behavior modification procedures are based on behavioral principles derived from scientific research. B. F. Skinner conducted the early scientific research that laid the foundation for behavior modification. He also published a number of books demonstrating the application of behavioral principles to everyday life. Behavior modification procedures often are implemented by people in everyday life. Behavior is measured before and after the behavior modification procedures are applied to document the effectiveness of the procedures.

Latency is the time from some stimulus or event to the onset of the behavior, whereas duration is the time from the onset of the behavior to its offset. That is, latency is how long it takes to start the behavior and duration is how long the behavior lasts. When using continuous recording, you can choose one or more dimensions to measure. The dimension you choose depends on which aspect of the behavior is most important and which dimension is most sensitive to change in the behavior after treatment.
