The purpose of this investigation was to shape creative verbal behavior in six fourth grade subjects through the use of positive social reinforcement delivered by a mechanical talking dummy. Dummy approval was contingent on the emission of a creative verbal response to verbal stimuli provided by the dummy in a series of training sessions.
