Overcorrection is defined as an aversive behavior modification technique that involves having a child practice a positive response that is incompatible with an inappropriate behavior.

Overcorrection is particularly effective in reducing self -stimulating and other inappropriate behaviors; a form of aversion therapy in which the client is made to "overcorrect" for the consequences of his or her undesired behavior.
