Use of a Home-Based Dependent Group Contingency System in Controlling Destructive Behavior: A Case Study

pp. 195—198

Group-oriented contingency systems have realized increased popularity within the last several years and have at least three advantages over individual contingency systems.One, teachers save time in administering group contingency programs because the same contingencies are in effect for all group members and individual records on everyone’s contingency program are not necessary. Two, group contingencies have been shown to be relatively more effective in modifying classroom behavior than individual contingencies (Hayes,1976; Litow & Pumroy, 1975; O’Leary & O‘Leary, 1976). Three, group contingency programs are a more economical behavior management system for classrooms because fewer adults are required to supervise and monitor the management program.
