PRETTE, Giovana Del. Didactic training of contingency analysis and prediction of interventions on the consequences of responding. Perspectivas [online]. 2011, vol.2, n.1, pp. 53-71. ISSN 2177-3548.

The aim of this article is to teach how to develop triple contingencies tables, based on functional hypotheses about the relationships between responses, its antecedents and consequences. The text has a number of highlighted questions that should be answered by the reader. Beginning with simple examples, the issues necessary for the development of contingency analysis are discussed and gradually more complex examples are presented. The last requires an understanding that, in uncontrollable situations, responses usually produce multiple effects, overlapping or alternating reinforcement, punishment and extinction. Afterwards, an exercise about predicting the effects of interventions over the consequences of responding is presented. Focus on modeling and differential reinforcement, based on the client's relates and his behavior in the very therapeutic interaction, are provided. Emphasizing the importance of natural reinforcement, the work is concluded presenting the likely changes of the client in the hypothetical example, based on the interventions gathered.

Palavras-chave : contingency analysis; functional hypothesis; intervention; modeling; natural reinforcement.
