PS517 Intervention Analysis
Your Final Project requires you to summarize information from Units 1, 3, and 6. In Unit 1 you identified a personal target behavior to change. In Unit 3, you answered a number of questions about that behavior. In Unit 6 you selected an intervention to address that behavior. By now you have had at least 2 weeks of attempting to change the behavior by implementing your intervention. With the benefit of your additional knowledge, explain what you did in each of the previous exercises. Explain the process of identifying and treating a targeted behavior, including what you learned from targeting your own behavior. Additionally and in detail, discuss the intervention implemented, how effective the intervention was, what problems you had, any steps you could have taken to achieve better results, and any other relevant insights that might be applicable regarding your attempt to modify the behavior. If you had used one of the non-operant/non-respondent modes of behavioral intervention that you read about for this unit’s discussion, do you think you would have gotten different results? Why or why not? Please be sure to discuss any ethical considerations that might be applicable with respect to the type of intervention you chose and the behavior being addressed. Your Final Project must be written in essay format, 12-point font, and double-spaced. You are required to use APA format and citations. This paper should be between 10-12 pages in length. A minimum of five resources should be used for the final project.
