Clearly describe the intervention you implemented. Provide sufficient detail such that readers of your intervention procedure would be able to replicate the procedure with high treatment fidelity. Provide a scholarly description of the evidence base supporting the approach you selected to change your behavior. Then, describe how effective the intervention was in changing your own behavior, what problems you had, any steps you could have taken to achieve better results, and any other relevant insights that might be applicable regarding your attempt to modify the behavior.

Now consider all of the tools you have available to you now that we are nearing an end in the course. Are there changes you would make to enhance your intervention since you created the plan for it? In particular, would you now incorporate antecedent approaches or punishment-based approaches? Why or why not?

Please be sure to discuss any ethical considerations that might be applicable with respect to the type of intervention you chose and the behavior being addressed.

The behavioral intervention involved liaising with a mentor to initiate a group work session in which the best team would be reinforced not based on the results but the standard principles as stipulated by the instructor. The intervention was indeed valuable since I changed most of the problematic tendencies including emotional outbursts, repetitive thinking, and a lack of room for mistakes. Nevertheless, I encountered several problems that perhaps jeopardized the progress. However, into the future, I will strive to implement measures that alleviate these challenges. These measures include familiarizing with other people’s interest first and then finding an effective balance. I also think integrating an antecedent model in my behavioral change program is an essential strategy. The new change is all about imposing some punishment for not exhibiting the expected behavior. There are however, some ethical problems marring the program, but with consensus between the mentor and me, the credibility of the program is maintained.

Description of the intervention implemented
The behavior that I was anticipating changing is perfectionism. After I administered the ABC assessment, it emerged that I was exhibiting a set of characteristics, which manifested my perfectionist nature. These included dysfunctional emotion modulation, repetitive thinking, a consistent belief that the efforts that other people make are substandard, and not reserving a room for mistakes. Hence, these problematic issues guided the design of my behavior intervention plan. At the heart of my program was to engage in tasks that required a high degree of coordination, extensive consultation, and short deadlines. Each of these three components of the behavior change program was worthwhile, given that a growing body of research offers sufficient support for their inclusion.
Concerning coordination, Beaulieu (2015) sets out that to reduce perfectionism among students in the middle school, it is critical that the teacher provides opportunities for them to coordinate with other learners in the classroom. As for consultation, Saneholtz (2018) confers that it is pertinent that those who have perfectionist tendencies might get immense help where they participate in individual and group consultation sessions. The essence of consultations is for the subjects to learn that the ideas of other people also count according to Hallsworth, Avery, and Trenell. (2016)....
