The effects of initial amount and rate of increased reinforcement in escalating schedule on walking activity of college students

Although some studies found escalating schedule as an effective reinforcement intervention in the promotion of physical activity(Kurti & Dally, 2013), The escalating schedule that increases the amount of provided reinforcement(Mahoney, 2017) during the accompanying management strategy for physical activity has been limited to systematic research and experiments. Until these days​, the studies that have applied an incremental reinforcement schedule do not specifically show when the amount of reinforcement is the most effective and efficient in increasing and maintaining target behavior at what rate. ​In order to contribute to the persuasive interaction technology, this study seeks to explore the most efficient reinforcement of an increasing schedule system and effective rate of increased reinforcement.

Psychological Characteristics and Parental Concerns of Girls with Precocious Puberty

Background

• Precocious puberty among females refers to the development of secondary sexual characteristics before the age of 8 years (Grumbach & Styne, 1998).
• Studies suggest that compared with normal developing girls, precocious pubescent girls were associated with higher risks for depression, anxiety, somatic symptoms, and externalizing problem behaviors and they rated themselves as less popular and “older-looking” than their peers (Ehrhardt et al., 1984; Jackson & Ott, 1990; Sonis et al, 1985).
• These phenomena have not yet been explored in Korean populations and psychological adjustment of precocious pubescent females needs to be evaluated in this under-studied population.
• The present study thus examined psychological characteristics and parental concerns among a group of precocious pubescent females relative to those of normally developing peers in Korea.

Methods

Participants

330 girls of age 6 – 12 were recruited and of these, 218 were diagnosed with precocious puberty. Those who did not complete measures were excluded from the analyses. Thus 87 precocious pubescent girls and 39 girls undergoing normal maturation were selected as the final participants.

Instruments

– Demographics questionnaire and parental concerns: Demographics of the participants and the parental concerns were collected.
– Medical examination: basic physique, physical components, blood hormonal concentration were examined to evaluate the maturation stage.
– The Revised Body-Esteem Scale (Mendelson & White, 1993): Perceived body-esteem of appearance and weight was measured.
– Maturity Fears Scale (Sinton, Davison & Birch,2005): Attitude towards her pubertal changes was measured.
– Emotional adjustment questionnaire: Recent emotional state was measured.

Analysis

Descriptive analysis and independent t-test were conducted.

Results

• Girls with precocious puberty showed significant differences in maturity fears. Specifically, differences were found in awareness of maturation (t = 4.614, p < .001), weight and body-shape discontent (t = 2.069, p < .05), and perceived timing of maturation(t = -3.293, p < .01).
• However, no differences in body-esteem and emotional adjustment were found between the precocious puberty group and control group.

Clinical psychology is the field devoted to studying individual’s psychological maladjustment and the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal behaviors. Knowledge in clinical psychology is being actively used not only in diagnosing and treating psychological disorders, but also in preventing psychological problems due to excessive stress that are becoming problematic in the modern society, in improving vitality of one’s everyday life, and in improving the quality of life at home, organization, and community.


Behavior therapy or behavior modification is a method that structurally teaches socially appropriate and personally meaningful behaviors using the principle of increasing and decreasing behaviors. It is used in clinical and educational settings related to the management of oneself and organization and to the relief of emotional and physical symptoms.


Yonsei University’s Behavioral Psychology Lab is affiliated with Yonsei University’s psychology department, and it is a space in which Professor Chung and her master/doctoral students conduct research together. Members of the lab participate in clinical training and psychological testing in places associated with Yonsei Psychological Health Center and university hospital. Through cooperating with other fields of study, assessment, treatment, and research are being conducted in various areas by applying the principles of behavior modification.
