Motivating operations (MOs) exert value- and behaviour-altering effects on problem behaviour. To date, there has been no systematic review of the literature regarding the influence of MOs on negatively reinforced problem behaviour. The current review adopted a systematic strategy to identify and review papers relevant to this area published between 1999-2011. Fifty nine papers were identified that met inclusion criteria for the review. Papers were grouped according to themes and reviewed to: 1) identify recent trends in the literature, 2) provide a critique of the methodological strengths and weaknesses of the field, 3) examine implications for the assessment, understanding and treatment of negatively reinforced problem behaviour and 4) provide suggestions for future research. A model of negatively reinforced problem behaviour is presented that emphasises the importance of the interaction between person and environment.
