Behavior Modification—An Overview

by Frederick H. Kanfer - 1973

In this chapter we will first note some historical trends of behavior modification. Then we will present a brief overview of the main elements that must be evaluated in preparation for formulation of a treatment program. Then we will summarize the basic paradigms of behavior change that form the foundation of the techniques described in subsequent chapters. We will conclude with some comments on the problems of extending methods from the laboratory to practice. The main purpose of this chapter is to orient the reader to the approach, so that he may retain an overall perspective as he reads in later chapters the accounts of methods and research findings in specialized subareas and with different populations.
