This panel discussion has been organized as part of the ABAI annual convention's Professional Development Series, which is hosted by the ABAI Student Committee. Experts in the field of School Psychology have been invited to serve as panel speakers and share their knowledge regarding group contingencies and ways to increase the effectiveness of group contingency interventions. Panel speakers will discuss topics relevant to procedures that can be used in order to increase the effectiveness of group contingency interventions implemented in the classroom setting. Panelists will describe basic independent, dependent, and interdependent group contingency intervention components. Next, the ways in which contingency components can be randomized in order to increase intervention effectiveness will be explained. Finally, panelists will present other types of behavioral intervention components that can be paired with group contingency interventions to increase their effectiveness in the classroom setting. After presenting, panelists will invite audience members to share in an open discussion surrounding successful implementation of classroom based group contingency interventions.
