(Part of the PRO-ED Series on How to Manage Behavior)
Events that directly precede and serve as a "trigger" for a problem behavior are called antecedents. The focus of this book is identifying and addressing antecedents to reduce inappropriate behavior and improve self-control. Though our discussions emphasize the antecedent behavior of children in school environments, readers should find it easy to extend the principles and procedures of antecedent analysis to behaviors seen in home, recreational, and work environments. Practical vignettes and authentic tasks containing pertinent questions aid in the systematic study of understanding and controlling antecedents. Five useful appendixes are included.
