Gundel, R. C. (1981). The Interaction of Locus of Control with Three Behavioral Procedures in the Modification of Disruptive Behavior in Emotionally Disturbed Boys. Multivariate Experimental Clinical Research, 5(3), 99-108.
This study investigated the interaction of locus of control with three behavioral procedures in modifying disruptive social behaviors of "emotionally disturbed" boys. A two way MANOVA was employed to analyze the data and no interaction was found. Contingency contracting was shown to be more effective than either self-regulation or teacher regulation combined with self-regulation with respect to two of three dependent variables.
