This popular introduction to behavior modification offers readers personal, "hands-on" experience with the principles of behavior modification and their application to everyday concerns -- from helping children and adults learn life's necessary -- or coping -- skills, to solving some of their own personal behavior problems. Easy to read and filled with numerous real-life examples, it features extensive descriptions and "how-to" guidelines for the particulars of program design, implementation, and evaluation. Focuses on principles of behavior modification and detailed "how-to" strategies, but discusses theoretical issues and empirical support in separate "Notes and Extended Discussions." Contains numerous summary guidelines for applying behavioral principles to solve a wide variety of problems in many settings with different populations. Features an entire chapter that itemizes the steps in the behavior modification from referral to follow-up. Includes numerous references to applications in a wide variety of professional areas. Contains detailed descriptions of different types of programs -- e.g., token economies, self-control programs, cognitive treatments, case studies, etc. Offers detailed treatment of ethical issues. An ideal reference/handbook for counselors, clinical psychologists, rehabilitation counselors, applied behavior analysts, developmental disabilities workers, psychiatric nurses, elementary school teachers, special education teachers, behavior managers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech pathologists, social workers, and psychiatrists.
