This study used an ABACA multiple baseline reversal design across two groups to evaluate the effectiveness of naturalistic and role-play video self-modeling with emotionally and behaviorally disordered elementary school children, in order to decrease off-task behavior and improve prosocial behaviors. Video self-modeling was utilized within the natural classroom environment and in role-play situations in a counter-balanced design. Children in the two randomly assigned groups, Group A and Group B, each observed their own on-task behaviors and prosocial interactions, after editing, on videotape. The mean percentages of off-task behaviors for the role play and naturalistic video self-modeling across subjects were 3.86% and 3.79%, regardless of the type of self-modeling. Video self-modeling is an adjunctive tool that school psychologists can use in their repertoire of interventions.
