DQ 1. Read the lecture. The article states, "This pattern of significant differences at the outset indicates that moral disengagement is an enabler rather than merely the result of performing repeated executions or reflects attribution of the more compassionate members". What is moral disengagement and how do prison employees use this as a coping mechanism within this work?


DQ 2. What experience have you had on the receiving end of behavioral approaches (work, school, military, etc.)? What experience have you had on the disbursing end of behavioral approaches?


DQ 3. What is the difference between positive and negative reinforcement? In your opinion, is either effective? Why or why not? Have you identified any maladaptive behaviors of your own this week? Do you wish to modify them? If so, how?


Individual Assignment - Self-Management Behavioral Contract

Select a goal: something that you would like to change about yourself. Perhaps you would like to stop smoking, or to control drinking, improve study habits, manage time better or change eating or exercise habits. It is critical that your goal be measurable, attainable, positive, and significant to you.


Describe the goal as target behaviors. What specific behaviors do you want to increase or decrease?


Conduct research about the effects of your habit. (Ex: Statistics/research about the increased rate of cancer among smokers)


Choose a means of monitoring your progress, such as a chart or a behavioral diary.


Write a contract that states all of the above points and specifies both internal and external consequences for actions in a realistic time frame, such as short-term rewards for adhering to the contract and a long-term reward for meeting the goals.
