An integrated model for guiding the selection of treatment components for problem behavior maintained by
automatic reinforcement. Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 49(3), 617–638.
1. What are the FA conditions or results patterns that indicate that problem behavior is maintained by automatic
reinforcement? (p. 617)
2. Describe the treatments to reduce problem behavior maintained by automatic reinforcement. (pp. 617–618)

maintained by automatic reinforcement show? (p. 619)
4. What is the purpose of this study? (p. 619)
5. Describe the three treatments evaluated in the study, and how did the experimenter assess for which
treatment group to assign to which participant, and what is COAB? (pp. 619–620)
6. Briefly describe the participants and primary dependent measure and data collection system used (i.e.,
rate/percentage/duration/etc.). (pp. 620–621)
