1. Quintero, Laura. Behavioral Skills Training to Teach Correct Heading Skills to Youth Soccer Players.

Degree: MS, Psychology, 2018, University of Southern Mississippi

Recently, concerns regarding sport-related concussions have increased within the research literature, the media, and popular culture. It is unknown to what degree purposefully striking the ball with one’s head (i.e. heading) contributes to concussions within youth soccer. There is currently limited research on an effective teaching method to improve heading technique. Due to the numerous applications of Behavioral Skills Training (BST) to teach a wide variety of behaviors, the purpose of the current study was to evaluate the effectiveness of BST to teach correct heading techniques to youth soccer players. A task analysis was produced to score each header. Results indicated that BST increased the percentage of correct steps for each player. Based on social validity questionnaires administered to players and the coach, BST was rated as an acceptable form of training. After the final training session, experienced coaches evaluated video recordings of baseline and training sessions for each player and rated each player as having improved from baseline to training. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Joe Olmi, Dr. James Moore, Mr. Kyle Rowsey.

2. Barker, Laura-Katherine. Improving Interview Skills in College Students Using Behavioral Skills and In Situ Training.

Degree: MS, Psychology, 2018, University of Southern Mississippi

Successful interviewing skills help maximize the probability that a job candidate will make a positive impression upon a prospective employer. An area of continued concern related to potential employee readiness involves performance in interviews. Questions remain regarding the effectiveness of higher educational systems to develop the variety of efficient skills necessary for students to showcase the full array of their qualifications within an interview. Behavioral Skills Training (BST) is a behavior analytic training package that has been shown to increase appropriate interview skills. In situ training (IST), also known as in-the-moment-training, has been offered as a method to improve the effectiveness of BST. The purpose of the present study aimed to extend the results of Stocco, Thompson, Hart, and Soriano (2017) in using BST to improve interview skills of college students by adding in situ training as an additional training component. Across all participant there was an improvement in interview skills. More specifically, BST with IST showed greater acquisition, maintenance, and generalization compared to BST only. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Joe Olmi, Dr. James Moore, Kyle Rowsey.

3. Lynne, Shauna. Investigating the Use of a Positive Variation of the Good Behavior Game in a High School Setting.

Degree: MA, Psychology, 2015, University of Southern Mississippi

The Good Behavior Game (GBG) is an example of an interdependent group contingency that can be used in classrooms to manage behavior. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a positive variation of the GBG in which teachers attend to rule-following behavior, as opposed to the original version of the game in which teachers attend to rule-breaking behavior. In previous studies, researchers have demonstrated the effectiveness of the GBG in decreasing problematic behavior and/or increasing productive or desired behavior in classroom settings and in hospital settings and spanning preschool-aged, elementary toddlers to high school-aged adolescents. An A/B/A/B withdrawal design was used across three classrooms to evaluate the effectiveness of the positive variation of the GBG. Reductions in disruptive behavior occurred in all three classrooms during intervention phases; increases in appropriately engaged behavior increased during intervention phases in all three classrooms as well. This study demonstrated that a positive variation of the GBG could be used effectively within a general education high school setting.
