Abstract

Two experiments involving the contingent application of verbal reprimands as a method of decreasing inappropriate social behavior were performed with two severely retarded males in an applied workshop setting. Experiment I showed that the application of a verbal reprimand substantially reduced the occurrence of nonsensical verbalizations. Experiment II demonstrated effective utilization of a verbal reprimand in reducing inappropriate verbalizations in a work setting.
