Behavior Modification: What It Is and How to Do It is a comprehensive, practical presentation of the principles of behavior modification and guidelines for their application. Appropriate for university students and for the general reader, it teaches forms of behavior modification ranging from helping children learn necessary life skills to training pets, to solving personal behavior problems. It teaches practical "how-to" skills, including: discerning long-term effects; designing, implementing, and evaluating behavioral programs; interpreting behavioral episodes; observing and recording behaviors; and recognizing instances of reinforcement, extinction, and punishment. Behavior Modification is ideal for courses in Behavior Modification, Applied Behavior Analysis, Behavior Therapy, the Psychology of Learning, and related areas; and for students and practitioners of various helping professions (such as clinical psychology, counselling, education, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, psychiatric nursing, psychiatry, social work, speech therapy, and sport psychology) who are concerned directly with enhancing various forms of behavior development. The material is presented in an interesting, readable format that assumes no prior knowledge of behavior modification or psychology. Specific cases and examples clarify issues and make the principles real. Guidelines throughout provide a ready source to use as a reference in applying the principles.Online resources, including an instructor’s manual, are available at www.routledge.com/9780815366546.
Progress in Behavior Modification, Volume 11 covers the developments in the study of behavior modification. The book discusses the pluralistic psychology of behavior change; the methodological issues in child behavior therapy; and the interpersonal-skills training with adolescents. The text also describes the behavior modification of work and work-related problems; the behavioral treatment of migraine and muscle-contraction headaches; and the modification of children's social withdrawal. An assessment of hyperactive children, with regard to the psychometric, methodological, and practical considerations, is considered. Psychologists, psychiatrists, and sociologists will find the book invaluable.

Abstract: A detailed examination of research on the clinical use of behavioral strategies for treatment of specific behavior disorders in adults and children (e.g., alcoholism, eating disorders, physiological disorders, neuroses, depression, sexual disorders) is provided for college students and professionals. Specific disorders and behavior modification approaches are dovered for children and youths suffering from psychosis, mental retardation, juvenile delinquency, and school and family problems. Some traditional psychiatric disorders (e.g., suicide, manic depressive psychosis) are excluded due to lack of sufficient research on behavioral treatment. Operant conditioning is applied to the treatment and prevention of behavior disorders. (wz).
Focusing on universal public health issues, this book introduces students and practitioners to behaviour change theories and applications. It details experiences of successful programmes for the prevention and control of the world's biggest killers and explores health communication and social marketing strategies, learning theory, media advocacy and community development.
This text utilizes a three stage approach to classroom behaviour management to assist teachers to avoid behaviour problems, manage those that cannot be avoided and resolve those that cannot be managed.
