View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This revision of Miller's successful text has been extensively field tested, and is ideal for the freshman/sophomore level Behavioral Modification or Applied Behavior Analysis course. Light-hearted, yet comprehensive, this text uses generalization programming to teach students how to apply behavioral concepts to complex everyday situations. The author introduces, defines, and illustrates each behavior modification concept and then immediately engages students with recall questions and vignettes that show students how to apply concepts to the real world.
