9780130739162: Behavior Modification in the Human Services: A Systematic Introduction to Concepts and Applications

This book provides an up-to-date and practical approach to the concepts and applications of behaviour modification and features an innovative framework for integrating those concepts within the social services.

Clinical examples drawn from eight in-depth case studies and a chapter new to this Third Edition on the cognitive behavioural approach affords viable access to significant influences currently in the field. Surpassing similar texts in its coverage of behaviour assessment, treatment planning and evaluation, this volume's clear and concise presentation make it indispensable reading.
