Sample text

The assessment of bizarre, inappropriate or deviant behaviour is different from that of assessing skills related to competency. To start with, a simple diary should be kept of every occurrence of deviant behaviour. This method is called event recording and 46 THE BEHAVIOURAL APPROACH would be useful for such activities as window breaking or tantrums, when they do not happen too frequently. Another way of observing and recording behaviour already present is to use a process called time sampling.

You can only change or modify the behaviour of a person (or yourself) if you can both identify and manipulate the reasons or causes of that person's behaviour. Sometimes you can identify the causes but cannot manipulate them; sometimes you may be manipulating the causes but fail to identify them. Most times, however, we attempt neither to identify nor to manipulate the causes. There are two main sources for variation in the behaviour of a person. The first comes from his physical or biological make up and can be said to be determined largely by his heredity - what he inherited from his parents.

Sometimes this translocation arises as a fresh mutation in a patient and the chromosome patterns of the parents then appear to be normal. However, if the mother has the translocation in balanced form, the risk of her having an affected child may be about one in five; but when the father has it, probably the risk is less than one in twenty. These theoretical risk figures are dependent upon which chromosomes are involved in the translocation; this can be ascertained by cytogenetic analysis. Moderate-risk situations arise in connection with conditions with a complex hereditary predisposition that can be seen by familial recurrence in large-scale family studies.
