Stimulus equivalence is a type of derived responding in which training some stimulus-stimulus relations results in the emergence of untrained and nonreinforced stimulus-stimulus relations. Generative responding is the rearrangement of existing behavioral repertoires into new repertoires without direct training. For example, in recombinative generalization, responses to stimulus combinations targeted during training are recombined in novel ways. This can occur through matrix training, in which targets are specifically arranged in a matrix to promote efficient instruction. Multiple studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of EBI and matrix training in producing novel responses. This presentation will review these topics and provide strategies to incorporate EBI and recombinative generalization procedures in the applied setting.
