Just Out! Sixth Edition of Dr. Raymond Miltenberger’s Text: Behavior Modification: Principles And Procedures
CFS’s Dr. Raymond Miltenberger’s text, Behavior Modification: Principles and Procedures, is now in its sixth edition and will be available January 2015. Providing case studies and examples to illustrate key principles, the text uses a precise, step-by-step, scientific approach to explain human behavior.
“I am gratified that the first five editions received positive reviews from students and professors,” said Dr. Miltenberger. “The sixth edition, which has kept the positive features of the earlier editions, has been revised to address the suggestions of reviewers, and has been updated to reflect the latest research in behavior modification.”
New, revised, or expanded topics include:
- the competing responses framework and team decision making
- professional practice, certification, and ethics
- the use of social media for social support
- novel uses of habit reversal
- more information on functional analysis
- more information on motivating operations
The text can be used in a standard one-semester course in behavior modification, applied behavior analysis, behavior management, or behavior change. It is intended for undergraduate students or beginning graduate students, and would also be valuable for individuals working in human services, education, or rehabilitation who must use behavior modification procedures to manage the behavior of the individuals in their care.
