The generalization of new behaviours and maintenance of programme contingencies in a chronic locked ward (pages 37-46)

The paper presents the results of a behavioural programme designed to increase social interaction and activity in the locked ward of a psychiatric hospital. The intervention used a method of information feedback to staff to encourage them to make informed choices of targets and methods of change. The rationale was that this would enhance generalization and programme maintenance. Evidence is presented to show the extent of change obtained after 6 months.
