Welcome to Assignment Paper Writing

you will identify one behavior that you would like to

 you will identify one behavior that you would like to change and monitor that behavior for 7 days. Using principles outlined in chapter 3 of your textbook, you will then implement behavioral strategies (stimulus control, self-reinforcement) over the next 14 days in an attempt to change the target behavior. Your target behavior can be either a health-compromising behavior that you would like to decrease, or a health-promoting behavior that you would like to increase. Please choose a behavior that you would be comfortable sharing with the class. At the end of the 3-week period, you will turn in a 1-2 page, double-spaced paper on your experience along with a graph/table of your behavior.


Your write-up should include the following information:

  1. A description of the behavior you attempted to change: were you trying to increase or decrease a particular behavior? 
  2. Why did you choose that behavior? What are the benefits to changing?
  3. What kinds of discriminative stimuli were you able to identify (remember to also define what a discriminative stimulus is)
  4. How were you able to implement behavior-change strategies (e.g., stimulus control, self-reinforcement) to promote behavior change? Describe the specific things you did.
  5. Were you able to change your behavior?
    • If not, what could you do differently in the future?
    • If so, explain how you will maintain these behaviors.
  6. Did you find this project easy or challenging, and why?
