Self-Management Project

The behavior that will need to be changed is poor eating habits. Instead of eating healthy food I eat food high in sugars and carbohydrates as well as fast foods that are processed and because I work at a desk, daily exercise is limited. The problem is low exercise and unhealthy eating. This is due to low motivation resulting in poor health outcomes. Through the self-management project the goal will be to increase healthy behavior, such as eating more healthy. Increasing healthy behavior will require decreasing snacking and caloric consumption and increasing water consumption and exercise. The end result will be weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.

I have attempted to live a healthier lifestyle in the past with little luck. The behavior will be observed and recorded in a daily journal. The amount of calories consumed in a day will be measured as well as the level of exercise. Every day the actual calories consumed will be recorded after the last meal for the day. Calorie consumption will be less than 1200 calories per day. The daily journal will be used to measure change in the behavior after introducing the reinforcer.

In week 3 I did a baseline data chart with a short essay (as shown). Based on the chart and short essay, I need a 1400 to 1750 word essay with the following instructions:

This cumulative assignment allows you to consider everything you have learned over the past 5 weeks in an attempt to change a behavior of your own. This overall process is similar to what a board-certified behavior analyst would compete with a new client.

  • Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word paper that outlines an intervention plan for changing that behavior, in which you discuss the following:

  • Describe the target behavior.
  • Outline the dimensions of measurement/baseline measurement.
  • Describe the function of the baseline behavior.
  • Outline the goals of the behavioral change.
  • Propose a behavior intervention plan based on goals.
    • Provide a minimum of 2 antecedent changes.
    • Provide 4 to 5 consequence modifications. Choose consequences based on at least four of the following: positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, negative punishment, positive punishment, and extinction. 
  • Describe any potential barriers to treatment, as well as how you would overcome these barriers.
  • Describe the expected outcome if the behavior intervention plan was implemented and followed.
  • Format your paper according to APA guidelines.
