Summary

Using a deliberately confusing and frustrating game exercise, the author attempts to present the student's perception of the conflicting demands that the school system places upon him. Despite the dearth of literature on behavior therapy as it relates to the adolescent, the author believes that the behavior therapist can help the adolescent. After exploring the tenets of behavior therapy, the author posits that the school might constitute an excellent place for the use of contingency contracts. An adolescent's ability to abide by his contract tells those around him that he is becoming more mature and responsible. He tends to live by the image which he himself has set up by abiding by his contract which further reinforces the attitudes of the adults around him and the spiral of adaptive behaviors. The report includes an example of a family behavioral contract that states general and specific privileges and responsibilities. (Author/LAA)
