and frequency of use of commonly used interventions for problem behavior.
In a short pilot study, we examined the differences in aversiveness
, intensity and startling capacity of both USs (N = 20).
In this way, this research intends to establish the net effect of the aversiveness
of the prime, regardless of whether its physical form matches that of the unconditioned stimulus in the prior conditioning phase or not.
Second, perfectionistic behavior can enhance the aversiveness
of stress responses.
"Instead of attempting to determine the appropriateness of an intervention based on its name, structure, or presumed aversiveness
, perhaps researchers should systematically determine the effectiveness of function-based interventions." (Hanley, Piazza, Fisher, & Maglieri, 2005, p.
Briefly, their purpose is to decrease aversiveness
and increase the reinforcement for teachers and administrators.
The percentage of pedal presses per opportunity provided an indication of the aversiveness
of the tone.
Alexander and Onwuegbuzie (2007) have indicated that the hope factor helps to predict procrastination with respect to fear of failure, but not task aversiveness
. Two control vignettes concluded the vignettes (see Appendix).
Basically, and following the contributions made by Ruch and his group (Ruch, 1992; Ruch & Hehl, 1998), we understand humor appreciation as the degree of funniness and aversiveness
experienced as a response to a given humor stimulus.
Equally and perhaps most important, it is a fact that physical resistance itself actually increases the aversiveness
of a dental exam or treatment exponentially; therefore, the process of teaching the patient to resist less will have the added effect of making the experience less aversive--for the patient and for the dental team.
In this situation, these goal statements will relate a multitude of events in the ongoing environment to the eventuality of experiencing anxiety and thereby potentially increase the perceived aversiveness
of that environment, a process that may ultimately fuel anxiety.
Because the previous Demand condition showed decreases in rate, trend, and level of problem behavior, it was believed that the task aversiveness
was reduced due to instructor attention.
