Applied Behavior Analysis: Principles and Procedures in Behavior Modification

October 2011, ©2012
Applied Behavior Analysis: Principles and Procedures in Behavior Modification (EHEP001995) cover image
Applied Behavior Analysis: Principles & Procedures for Modifying Behavior provides today’s students with a handbook to help them design and conduct interventions to modify behaviors when they enter professional careers. This text will serve as a resource for students who plan to become behavior analysts to design and conduct interventions to change clients’ behaviors.

Author, Ed Sarafino provides an understanding of the fundamental techniques of applied behavior analysis by presenting its concepts and procedures in a logical sequence and giving clear definitions and examples of each technique.  The text will guide students to learn,

  •  how to identify and define the behavior to be changed and how a response is determined by its antecedents and consequences,
  • usable, practical skills by specifically stating the purpose of each technique, describing how it is carried out, and presenting guidelines and tips to maximize its effectiveness,
  • why and how to design a program to change a behavioral deficit or excess by conducting a functional assessment and then selecting and combining techniques that can be directed at the behavior itself and its antecedents and consequences, and,
  • to illustrate why and how to collect and analyze data.

Applied Behavior Analysis: Principles & Procedures for Modifying Behavior is available in alternate versions (eBooks and custom) for professors and students.  For more information, visit the “Instructor’s Resource” tab or “Student Resource” tab below.

  • Case Studies in almost every chapter describe the application of behavior analysis methods with specific individuals to make behavior problems and the procedures to change them concrete.
  • Close-Up boxes present theoretical or controversial issues and in-depth conceptual topics.
  • Approximately two Concept Check per chapter, to test students’ basic grasp of the concepts and procedures in the preceding sections (answers provided at the chapters’ end). Questions include “critical thinking” items, asking students of examples from their reading or their own lives.
