The token reinforcement model as established and reviewed by literature has been analyzed by varied researchers in regards to general principles of behavior. Romani, Alcorn, Miller & Clark (2017) elucidates that the token economy first found root in human history as a transition from an agricultural society to a nomadic hunter-gatherer society and later expanded to a simpler and better economy. Currently, the token economic framework is mainly used in monetary transactions that primarily involve some form of token reinforcement . The fundamental purpose of this audit lies in examining the efficacy and efficiency of the token economy system in protecting the dog’s life.
Token Economy for Protecting Dog’s Life
The token economy model remains an aspect that is mainly based on the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) that primarily emphasize on the need of using positive reinforcement in targeting the element of behavior change. Given this, the token economy model will play a vital role in helping pet keepers to visualize the need to protect the dog’s lives, work and accept delayed reinforcement as well as learn to engage in self-monitoring for the purpose of learning to regulate their negative behaviors towards the killing of dogs (Romani, Alcorn, Miller & Clark, 2017).
One of the effective ways of improving behavior in regards to the protection of nature and animals lies in need to reward positive actions as opposed to focusing on the harmful activities of people. The ICO will, therefore, play a vital role in the collection of financial resources that will aid in the building and running of the facilities to help in the protection of dogs. On the other hand, the token economy will earn resources through the running of an e-commerce system that will involve the selling of supplies and dog foods.
According to cognitive behavior therapy, the ignorance of negative behavior and the reward of good behavior plays a vital role in changing how people view matters. For instance, dogs are wonderful and good additions to any home. To protect dog’s lives in Japan, the use of the token economy would ensure that experienced pet parents or adaptors need to understand the need to keep their canine companion’s happiness and health a priority.
The token economy model will in this case help in raising awareness on the need to protect and care for dogs as opposed to killing the animals in Japan (Romani et al., 2017). When developing a dog economy for this project, there is a need first to determine the behavior that needs to be changed; in this case the obligation to refrain from the killing of dogs.
The next step would, therefore, need to determine the activities that will be needed in motivating behavior change in Japan, thus detailing the need to identify and understand actions that may be used in reinforcing positive behavior change . In this case, the pet keepers will rely on the use of this information in construing activities such as action campaigns that may be used in encouraging the community to refrain from the killing of dogs.
As established in this study, the token reinforcement model as established and reviewed by literature has been analyzed by varied researchers in regards to general principles of behavior. The token economy model will play a vital role in helping pet keepers to visualize the need to protect dog’s lives, work and accept delayed reinforcement as well as learn to engage in self-monitoring to learn to regulate their negative behaviors towards the killing of dogs. This model, therefore, advocates for the need to use positive actions to encourage and reinforce the protection of dog’s lives in Japan
