Constructing self-modeling videos: Procedures and technology



Although widely recommended, evidence-based interventions are not regularly utilized by school practitioners. Video self-modeling is an effective and efficient evidence-based intervention for a variety of student problem behaviors. However, like many other evidence-based interventions, it is not frequently used in schools. As video creation technology becomes increasingly accessible, school psychologists are better able to incorporate video self-modeling into their practice. Built on a comprehensive review, this article describes the procedures for implementing a video self-modeling intervention in educational settings. Video self-modeling procedures described herein include (a) deciding whether video self-modeling is an appropriate intervention for a situation, (b) planning for and preparing video self-modeling procedures, (c) videotaping, (d) editing the video, (e) presenting the video, and (f) using video self-modeling with other behavioral techniques. Additionally, further resources are offered. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
