Transcription: 
If you find that you’re using a token economy to eradicate a particular behavior that you don’t want and it’s effective, once they succeed, I recommend that you use that token economy for any other behaviors that you want to perfect. That way the child continues to work on challenging their negative behaviors, to improving, to becoming a champion so if you find that it’s effective, you can continue to motivate them to kind of streamline all of their bad habits and let them overcome the negative behaviors that they have.
