OREGON SCIENTIST DISCUSSES ANTISOCIAL CHILD BEHAVIOR

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  MARQUETTE – Dr. Mike Stoolmiller of the Oregon Social Learning Center will illustrate new directions in the study of antisocial and delinquent behavior in children during a presentation at Northern Michigan University.

Scientists at the Oregon Social Learning Center have spent the past 25 years researching the causes of these behaviors and developing effective interventions. The OSLC perspective – once dubbed “Coercion Theory” and rooted in operant conditioning principles – has expanded to include a life course, developmental perspective that integrates biological and sociological causes of behavior.

Stoolmiller will offer several brief examples and one in-depth case study culled from his 15 years of research at the OSLC to illustrate some of the new directions. His presentation will be held from 3:10-4”15 p.m. Friday, March 26, in 167 Gries Hall. The public is invited to attend free of charge.
