Interdependent group contingencies involve a common consequence based on the behavior of all members of the group, as groups may have to meet a behavioral criterion together or all group members must meet a criterion to access a consequence. Interventions such as the Good Behavior Game, Peer Reporting Interventions, and mystery motivators are examples of interdependent group contingencies that utilize peer influence to improve appropriate behaviors in classrooms. This chapter discusses implementation issues with group contingencies, including target behavior selection, classroom training, addressing group sabotage, and managing contingencies. This chapter also discusses considerations of diversity and equity within interdependent group contingencies.
