Abstract

This paper begins with a discussion about environmental dependency syndrome (EDS) and utilization behaviour (UB). Are there differences between the two or are they synonymous terms? Following a description of the two conditions, the case of KI, a 57-year-old man, with both UB and EDS is presented. An easy and inexpensive treatment strategy to reduce his inappropriate responses and increase his attention to rehabilitation is described, and data are provided in the form of an ABABA design to demonstrate the effectiveness of this treatment. The simple therapeutic strategy is advocated for people who use objects in the environment inappropriately. = Este artículo comienza con una discusión sobre el Síndrome de Dependencia Ambiental (SDA) y la Conducta de Utilización (CU). ¿Existen diferencias entre los dos o son términos sinónimos? Después de la descripción de los dos trastornos, se presenta el caso de KI, un hombre de 57 años que padece ambas afecciones. Se describe una estrategia de tratamiento fácil y económica para reducir estas respuestas inadecuadas y aumentar su atención a la rehabilitación, y se ofrecen datos en la forma de un diseño ABABA para demostrar la efectividad de este tratamiento. Se aboga por esta estrategia terapéutica simple para personas que utilizan objetos de su entorno de forma inadecuada.
