The Establishment and administration of operant conditioning programs in a State hospital for the retarded by Thomas S., Ed Ball( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seven articles treat the establishment of operant conditioning programs for the mentally retarded at Pacific State Hospital in California. Emphasis is on the administrative rather than the demonstration of research aspects of operant conditioning programs. Following an introduction and overview, the medical director's point of view on operant conditioning programs is presented and the following aspects of the token economy program are examined in articles by various staff members at the state hospital: demands on the staff, selection of patients, operation of the token economy program, the high school program, and the implementation of new programs in ward care of the retarded. Three additional articles discuss the training program in operant conditioning for institutional staff members, a cross-cultural use of operant conditioning at a mental hospital in Vietnam, and operant conditioning treatment programs at Porterville State Hospital. Additional material details administrative policies and daily procedures at Pacific State Hospital. (Kw)
