|Title:||Using vicarious reinforcement to increase client assignment completion||Contributor(s):||Malouff, John M (author); Schutte, Nicola (author) ; Rooke, Sally E (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/6299||Abstract:||Research evidence supports the efficacy of vicarious reinforcement in increasing client completion of between-session assignments. The use of vicarious reinforcement involves presenting, usually in an anecdote, the example of a real-life person who performed a task similar to the one about to be assigned to a client and benefitted. The vicarious-reinforcement effect on the target behaviour of assignment completion can likely be enhanced by using multiple models, and by using models who are likeable, high in prestige, and similar to the client. In some cases, the therapist can provide a personal anecdote to increase the chances the client will complete an assignment.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||The Behavior Analyst Today, 9(2), p. 150-152||Publisher:||The Behavior Analyst Today||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||1539-4352||Field of Research (FOR):||170106 Health, Clinical and Counselling Psychology||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||920209 Mental Health Services||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.baojournal.com/BAT%20Journal/VOL-9/BAT-9-2.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 387
