Example text

F. Skinner conducted the early scientific research that laid the foundation for behavior modification. He also published a number of books demonstrating the application of behavioral principles to everyday life. Behavior modification procedures often are implemented by people in everyday life. Behavior is measured before and after the behavior modification procedures are applied to document the effectiveness of the procedures.

Observation in a natural setting is likely to provide a more representative sample of the target behavior.

In addition, the client might be asked to self-monitor the target behavior outside the therapy sessions. If selfmonitoring is used in a behavior modification program, the client must be trained to record his or her own behavior in the same way that an observer would be trained. When and Where to Record The observer records the target behavior in a specific period called the observation period.
