Summary

This fifth edition of Behavior Modification: What It Is and How To Do It, like its predecessors, assumes no specific prior knowledge about psychology or behavior modification on the part of the reader. Those who want to know how to apply behavior modification to their everyday concerns-from helping children learn life's necessary skills to solving some of their own personal behavior problems-will find the text useful.
