Thesis Talk Focuses on Natural Environment Training

Thursday 9, 2017

Miranda Johnson, a master’s psychology student at Northern Michigan University, will give her thesis presentation titled “Using Peer-Mediated Self-Monitoring to Increase Procedural Integrity of NET in a Clinic Setting” at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15, in 3085 West Science.

Johnson will present on Natural Environment Training. NET is an Applied Behavior Analysis technique that promotes "learning through play." The instructions are driven by an individual's motivation and carried out in environments that closely resemble natural environments. The goal of NET is to help students generalize skills from one setting to another.
