Controversial Punishment Procedures

Controversial Punishment Procedures

Paper instructions:

In a prior assignment, you considered some controversial treatments. Perhaps there is no more controversial treatment than the use of highly aversive punishment procedures for children and adolescents, especially those with disabilities. Some behavior analysts strongly oppose the use of aversive punishment procedures (for example, contingent skin shock, aromatic ammonia, and lemon juice). Other behavior analysts weigh the short-term discomfort to the client associated with such procedures against the potentially long-term relief from pain and risk to the client that may occur if dangerous behaviors are not effectively decreased or stopped, so that more appropriate skills can be taught.

Conduct a search for information on one of the following aversive procedures: contingent skin shock (not electroconvulsive therapy), aromatic ammonia, lemon juice. Cite the source and describe the treatment.
Prepare 3–4 pro statements that might be given to support the use of the treatment. Also, prepare 3–4 con statements that might be given to oppose the treatment.
Finally, evaluate your findings. Discuss at least four relevant ethical compliance code elements that you have learned in this course thus far.
Assignment Requirements

Written communication: Should be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
APA formatting: References and citations are formatted according to current APA style guidelines.
Resources: At least 2–4 recent scholarly or professional resources.
Length: 3–4 double-spaced pages, in addition to a title page and a references page.
Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12-point.
SafeAssign: You are required to use SafeAssign before submitting the completed assignment to your instructor. Submit your work to SafeAssign as a draft, review the results, and make any needed changes. When you are ready, submit your assignment to the assignment area for grading.
