Abstract : The paper reviews theoretical background and recent developments in contingency management. The contingency management approach applies psychological principles of reinforcement (reward) in attempting to manage behavior (or learning) by manipulating the immediate effects, or contingencies, occurring as a consequence of performance. A survey of related literature includes studies with the retarded, with deviant behavior, and with children. (Author)
