  • Parenting in a Pandemic: Preliminary Support for Delivering Brief
           Behavioral Parent Training Through Telehealth

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jacob B. W. Holzman, Jessica L. Hawks, Sarah M. Kennedy, Bruno J. Anthony, Laura G. Anthony
      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      Behavioral problems, such as noncompliance and aggression, are a common referral reason to mental health services for young children. Behavioral parent training (BPT) is the leading intervention for addressing behavioral problems and leads to benefits in a variety of parental factors (e.g., parenting efficacy and parenting stress). While the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically shifted service delivery toward telehealth services, limited work has evaluated the effectiveness of BPT when delivered in a brief, group format through telehealth. The current retrospective chart review study evaluated the engagement to and preliminary effectiveness of a brief version of BPT delivered through telehealth to 64 families of 3- to 7-year-olds referred for behavioral problems. Families attended an average of 4.55 of 6 sessions and most families had two caregivers who engaged in the intervention. Significant reductions in caregivers’ report of children’s behavioral problems and improvements in parenting self-efficacy resulted. Future research and clinical implications are discussed.

  • Transition States in Single-Case Experimental Designs: A Retrospective
           Consecutive-Controlled Case Series Investigation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Brianna Laureano, John Michael Falligant
      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      Behavioral interventions to decrease problem behavior often involve the use of single-case experimental designs in which an individual’s responding during a treatment condition is compared to responding during a control or baseline condition. It is possible that during the initial introduction of treatment, problem behavior continues to occur at baseline rates before behavior reduction is observed; this phenomenon is called a transition state. Evaluated the prevalence of transition states in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and found that they occurred within 5.3% of the published literature. The current study replicated and extended Brogan et al. by evaluating the prevalence of transition states in unpublished clinical data of patients admitted to an inpatient hospital for the treatment of severe problem behavior. Using a retrospective consecutive-controlled case series, transition states were observed in 3% of cases for an average duration of 4.8 sessions. We discuss factors that may affect transitional behavior between phases and relevant implications for practice and research.

      Authors: Keith Williams, Laura Seiverling
      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this paper was to review the current state of the behavior analytic feeding intervention literature. We highlight studies that we found to be important contributions to the recent literature in the following areas: food selectivity, chewing, packing, and food refusal/tube weaning and provide suggestions for future research and clinical work in these areas. We also discuss several current topics relevant to the field in hopes to further advance research and clinical practice. These topics include considering the benefits of innovative models of service delivery such as telehealth and caregiver-implemented interventions, the importance of evaluating long-term outcomes of behavioral feeding interventions, and lastly, ethical issues to consider in the designing and implementation of behavioral feeding interventions and training of practitioners in our field.

      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      Although live coaching using behavioral principles is a powerful mechanism of change in behavioral parent training (BPT), little research has examined the coaching process. We used a cross-sectional sample of coaches with different levels of training in the evidence-based behavioral parent training model parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT) to begin to understand how training impacts coaching techniques. Forty-six coaches including PCIT lay helpers, therapists, within-agency and global/regional trainers, provided a sample of coaching in response to a standardized parent-child interaction. Level of training was significantly and positively associated with coaching verbalizations (r(44) = .80, p

  • Is ACT-Informed Exposure a Viable Treatment for Excoriation Disorder'
           A Multiple Baseline Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Brian L. Thompson
      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      This study piloted the use of ACT-informed exposure as an adjunct to habit reversal training (HRT) for excoriation disorder (ExD). Using a nonconcurrent multiple baseline single case design, four participants completed sessions of exposure and HRT. Repeated measures and self-report data were collected on skin picking and psychological flexibility. Two participants completed HRT followed by exposure, and two participants completed exposure followed by HRT. Results support the effectiveness of HRT in reducing picking. Results suggest exposure may have some impact in reducing picking, but effects were weaker compared to HRT. Contrary to predictions, repeated measures and self-report data did not indicate consistent improvement in psychological flexibility during exposure phases. As any reduction in picking may be clinically meaningful and all participants maintained gains at follow-up, there is some indication that exposure may be a second-line treatment worth further study. Limitations and future areas of research are discussed.

  • Imaginal Exposure for Disordered Eating Related Fears: An Initial
           Randomized Controlled Trial

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rachel M. Butler, Richard G. Heimberg
      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      Exposure therapy has been investigated as a treatment for eating disorders, but prior research has largely neglected core fears underlying the disorder such as rejection, abandonment, disgust, and loss of control. We tested the feasibility and acceptability of using imaginal exposure to target disordered eating related fears by randomizing participants (N = 47) with disordered eating to: imaginal exposure (IE), imaginal exposure preceded by a brief food exposure (IE + Food), or an assessment control. Participants attended two in-person visits and completed pretreatment, posttreatment, and one-month follow-up questionnaires. IE was rated more acceptable than IE + Food. Retention was high across conditions. Habituation occurred for subjective distress and believability of feared outcomes, suggesting that imaginal exposure effectively activates core fears. Distress tolerance and confidence in ability to change improved. Disordered eating symptoms, fears, preoccupations, and rituals decreased in all conditions, indicating that IE was not specifically responsible for improvement.

      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      Studying the usefulness of contextual and cognitive transdiagnostic therapies calls for an analysis of both their differential efficacy and their specificity when acting on the transdiagnostic conditions on which they focus. This controlled trial compares the post-treatment and 3- and 6-month follow-up effects of Behavioral Activation (BA), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive-Behavioral Transdiagnostic Therapy (TD-CBT) on emotional symptomatology, and analyses the role played by Experiential Avoidance, Cognitive Fusion, Activation and Emotion Regulation in the clinical change. One hundred twenty-eight patients who fulfilled diagnostic criteria for anxiety and/or depression (intention-to-treat sample) were randomly assigned to three experimental group-treatment conditions (BA, n = 34; ACT, n = 27; TD-CBT n = 33) and one control group (WL, n = 34). Ninety-nine (77.34%) completed the treatment (per-protocol sample). In the post-treatment, all therapies reduced anxiety and depression symptomatology. In the follow-ups, the reduction in emotional symptomatology was greater in the condition which produced greater and more prolonged effects on Activation. Activation appears to be the principal condition in modifying all the transdiagnostic patterns and BA was the most efficacious and specific treatment. The trial was registered at ClinicalTrials.gov NCT04117464. Raw data are available online http://dx.doi.org/10.17632/krj3w2hfsj.1.

  • Applications of the Premack Principle: A Review of the Literature

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jessica L. Herrod, Sara K. Snyder, Joseph B. Hart, Sarah J. Frantz, Kevin M. Ayres
      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      The Premack principle states that any Response A can reinforce any other Response B if the independent rate of A is greater than the independent rate of B. This theory demonstrates reinforcer relativity, where the relative probabilities of responses can be more impactful than preference. Applying the Premack principle involves arranging the environment to restrict access to certain responses based on relative probabilities of a set of given responses. Though the Premack principle is described in modern behavior analytic texts, Konarski et al. identified a lack of empirical evidence to support its application. The purpose of the current paper is to systematically review the extant literature using the Premack principle and evaluate how and if researchers have applied reinforcer relativity as described by Premack and the subsequent effectiveness of these procedures. Additionally, we make recommendations for practitioners and future researchers based on our findings.

      Authors: Gabrielle T. Lee, Yuwei Tang, Sheng Xu
      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a procedure involving systematic withdrawal of stimulus prompts and tangible reinforcers on the acquisition, maintenance, and generalization of eye contact and gaze following for two children with ASD in China. Two boys with ASD (5–6 years of age) participated. A concurrent multiple probe design across behaviors and participants was used. Results indicate that the procedure effectively established eye contact and gaze following for both children. Generalization to new instructors occurred in the free play setting, and the acquired behaviors were maintained for 1 month following training. Eye contact was maintained with social consequences for one child; the other child required tokens along with social consequences to maintain eye contact. Social consequences were sufficient to maintain gaze following for both children.

  • Using Chained or Tandem Schedules With Functional Communication Training:
           A Systematic Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jessica N. Torelli, Sage E. Pickren
      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      Chained and tandem schedules are a common method for thinning schedules of reinforcement following functional communication training (FCT) in the treatment of problem behavior. We conducted a systematic literature review and meta-analysis of chained and tandem schedules following FCT to describe treatment characteristics and evaluate effects. We identified 38 articles and found reductions in problem behavior across four measures. Results of a random-effects multilevel meta-analysis of rigorous evaluations showed a significant effect of chained or tandem schedules + FCT on problem behavior relative to baseline. We observed resurgence in 77% of cases and 31% of schedule-thinning transitions. Results showed chained schedules resulted in greater reductions in problem behavior relative to tandem schedules. Exploratory moderator analyses suggested extinction, combined reinforcement, and delay and denial tolerance training procedures were associated with greater reductions in problem behavior relative to other treatment characteristics. Implications for practice and future research are discussed.

  • Cognitive Restructuring Before Versus After Exposure: Effect on Expectancy
           and Outcome in Individuals With Claustrophobia

      Authors: Kirstyn L. Krause, Naomi Koerner, Martin M. Antony
      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      Maximizing the discrepancy between expected and actual outcomes during exposure (i.e., expectancy violation) is thought to optimize inhibitory learning. The current study examined Craske et al.’s suggestion that engaging in cognitive restructuring (CR) before exposure prematurely reduces expectancy and mitigates outcomes. Participants (N = 93) with claustrophobia were randomly assigned to either 15 minutes of CR before exposure (CR Before) or 15 minutes of CR after exposure (CR After). Although the CR Before condition experienced greater expectancy reduction before exposure than the CR After condition, both groups experienced similar overall expectancy reduction by the end of the intervention. Groups experienced similar gains, with large significant improvement at posttreatment and follow-up. Results suggest that both cognitive therapy and exposure therapy lead to expectancy reduction, but that the order of these interventions does not impact outcome.

      Abstract: Behavior Modification, Ahead of Print.
      Mindfulness-based programs are a promising intervention modality for reducing disruptive behavior, and Soles of the Feet (SOF) is one program that teaches internal awareness of personal events (e.g., unpleasant emotions) and a self-regulation strategy to decrease disruptive behaviors. This study conducted a meta-analysis of single-case research design (SCRD) studies that implemented SOF to decrease disruptive behaviors. Existing SOF studies were evaluated using high-quality SCRD standards, resulting in 15 studies included in the analysis (49 participants; mean age 23.12 years (SD = 15.87); highly heterogeneous backgrounds). Studies were analyzed to calculate effect sizes using Tau-U, an innovative non-parametric statistical approach for estimating effect sizes in SCRD studies. The aggregated weighted Tau-U effect size of SOF across all studies was −0.87. Moderator analyses indicated SOF’s effectiveness was robust across participant characteristics and delivery formats. This meta-analysis suggests that SOF is a moderately effective evidence-based practice for reducing disruptive behavior.
