Escape as a factor in the aggressive behavior of two retarded children.
This study sought to identify some of the variables controlling the severely aggressive behavior of two retarded children. The results suggested that: (1) aggression can sometimes function as an escape response; and (2) escape-motivated aggression can be controlled by: (a) introducing strongly preferred reinforcers to attenuate the aversiveness of the demand situation; (b) strengthening an alternative, nonaggressive escape response; or (c) using an escape-extinction procedure.
