Abstract

Discusses 2 unresolved theoretical issues in the self-management literature. Cognitive-behavioral and operant theories regarding the nature of self-reinforcement and the mechanisms responsible for reactive self-monitoring are presented, along with a literature review supporting the various theories. Areas in which additional research is needed to support a particular view are discussed. Recommendations for applying self-management procedures in school psychology are offered based on the literature.
