Duong, Xuan 1 HDP 191 RP#2 Possible research topic 1: Social significance of violent play behaviors of preschool children 1. The Effects of Active and Violent Play Activities on Brief Functional Analysis Outcomes a. Reflection: i. Challenging behavior has been linked to a child’s preference in violent playing activity, but the largest contributing factor may be the environment. External factors play a role in child’s behavior, which can lead to shaping their playing preferences. Researchers use reinforcement (positive and negative) to manipulate a child’s behavior, this knowledge can further be applied to the education of teachers, instructors and caregivers in how to treat children with aggressive tendencies. b.

The hypothesis that was tested: Functional communication training (FCT) can change a child’s playing behavior, from a challenging, violent activity to a more non-violent non-active activity.

The study was supported by the research, but there were a few problems: 1. The variables were limited in that there were only two categories of behavior (aberrant and non-aberrant), and the operational definition for aberrant behavior included three subcategories: aggression, tantruming, and destruction. Although the descriptions were very clear and concise, some behaviors were not accounted for, such as non-social or fantasy violence. 2.
