dc.description.abstract The study was an attempt to determine if a significant change in behavior would occur when a "token economy" was instituted on an open ward. Schizophrenic patients in the token system that resided on one ward were compared with control patients on other wards on a number of desired behaviors. Results indicated an overall increase in the frequency of desired responses when the token reinforcement was initiated. The study also suggests some problem areas involved when instituting and maintaining a token economy in a state hospital.
