The elimination of a childs in class masturbation by over correction and reinforcement

, : The elimination of a childs in class masturbation by over correction and reinforcement. Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry 8(2): 201-204

An 8 yr old mentally retarded, behaviorally disturbed child, attending a public school based day treatment program, frequently masturbated during pre-academic instructional sessions. Attempts at modifying the masturbation through the reinforcement of incompatible behaviors were unsuccessful. When the child was required to practice a series of over-correction responses contingent upon masturbation, a rapid suppression of the behavior was produced. All masturbation was eliminated after 8 days of overcorrection treatment. At 1-mo., 6-mo. and 12-mo. follow-ups, the behavior remained absent.
