AbstractAs educators it can be difficult managing behaviors that are inappropriate behaviors in and out of our classroom. It can also be hard finding which strategy works best for which class. However, it is our job to create a safe and positive learning environment for each and every one of our students. We need to create a classroom behavior plan and have expectations for our students and they need to understand what is expected of them the first day they walk through that door. As teachers, we need to figure out the best way to help each student succeed. In order to do this, we may need to work together with other colleagues to create a plan for that particular student or students. There are a variety of different behavior plans and interventions that can be used in the classroom but we need to continue to keep it positive when we implement it.

The effects of the Good Behavior Game on first grade students' behaviors.Bartela, Ashley L. (2015)The positive reinforcement contingencies, particularly the Good Behavior Game, have been used by teachers to improve behaviors among students within the classroom. Prior research suggests that the Good Behavior Game saves educators time in constantly administering consequences to students, and promotes both positive social behaviors and academic performance among students involved simultaneously (Tankersley, 1995). This quantitative study investigated the effectiveness of the positive reinforcement contingency, the Good Behavior Game on increasing on-task behavior and decreasing disruptive behaviors among a group of five first grade students (three girls and two boys) enrolled in an Academic Intervention Services (AIS) classroom. The researcher collected data through an ABA design, which spanned over a cumulative period of four weeks. Findings demonstrated a direct correlation between the implementation of the Good Behavior Game and on-task behaviors, as well as a significant decrease in disruptive behaviors among each of the five first grade students involved in the study.
The Associations of Polygenic Scores for Risky Behaviors and Parenting Behaviors with Adolescent Externalizing Problems.Ksinan, Albert J; Smith, Rebecca L; Barr, Peter; Vazsonyi, Alexander T (2021-07-31)The current study focused on longitudinal effects of genetics and parental behaviors and their interplay on externalizing behaviors in a panel study following individuals from adolescence to young adulthood. The nationally representative sample of Add Health participants of European ancestry included N = 4142 individuals, measured on three occasions. Parenting was operationalized as experiences with child maltreatment and maternal closeness. Externalizing problems were operationalized as alcohol use, cannabis use, and antisocial behaviors. Genetic effects were operationalized as a polygenic score (PGS) of risky behaviors. The results showed significant effects for child maltreatment, maternal closeness, and PGS, above and beyond other factors and previous levels of externalizing behaviors. Furthermore, maternal closeness was found to negatively correlate with PGS. No significant interaction effects of parenting and PGS were found. The results underscore the joint independent effects of parenting and genetics on the change in externalizing behaviors from adolescence to young adulthood.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Training Core Mindfulness: Its Impact on Everyday Mindfulness, Goal-Directed, and Ineffective BehaviorsOutland, Rafael; Smith, Nicole; The College at Brockport (2015-10-01)Individuals diagnosed with certain mental illnesses often engage in automatic thought patterns, which makes them more likely to behave in ineffective and harmful ways. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), with its emphasis on mindfulness, aims to help individuals break automatic thought patterns in order to engage in more goal directed behaviors. Previous studies have explored the effectives of the DBT program in its entirety however; only preliminary results have been published on the impact of mindfulness as it is taught through DBT. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of core mindfulness as it is taught through a DBT skills training group on goal directed and ineffective behaviors. The study will be detailed through describing the participants, materials, and the procedure. Results were measured through pre, mid-way, and post-test administration of the Mindfulness Awareness Attention Survey (MAAS). The results indicate that for some participants, levels of mindfulness did increase after participating in the core mindfulness module of DBT skills training. Lastly, findings, implications, limitations, and recommendations for future research are explored.
