The purpose of this study was to determine if a specific behavior modification program for a group home would decrease inappropriate behaviors in adolescent males while increasing appropriate behavior. All boys were in foster care and were placed in the group home setting. Additionally, all boys had been involved in the juvenile justice system. The boys all had histories of academic and behavioral difficulties. Behavioral problems ranged from insubordination to physical aggression. Job Card Grounding with a Token Economy was implemented. Incidences of inappropriate behavior dramatically decreased while appropriate behaviors increased. Two years worth of data will be shared.
