BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE, THIRD EDITION helps students master the principles and concepts of behavior modification before they move on to the procedures. The author uses a precise, step-by-step scientific approach to explain human behavior, using numerous case studies and interesting examples to help illustrate the key principles. Each concept is presented, explained, and clarified by discussing pertinent research, and is then brought into focus with examples showing how each behavioral principle can be applied to everyday life. This approach gives students a chance to understand WHY they might use a particular procedure before they actually use it. Current scholarship, engaging authorship, ample graphs and illustrations, and a clear organization make Miltenberger's text very accessible?even for students with no background in psychology. Professors and students find the "Applications and Misapplications of Behavioral Principles" especially helpful, as these end-of-chapter features give readers a feel for the concepts they've just explored.

Raymond G. Miltenberger received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 1985 from Western Michigan University. He is currently a professor and director of the Applied Behavior Analysis Program at the University of South Florida. Dr. Miltenberger conducts applied behavior analysis research with his students and publishes widely in the areas of sports and fitness, functional assessment and treatment of behavioral disorders, and self-protection skills training. He utilizes behavior modification in clinical work with children and individuals with intellectual disability.
