Behavior modification is the application of principles and research findings from the science of psychology to the assessment and treatment of abnormal or maladaptive behavior. In that regard, this course will set out to familiarize students with the theoretical and research foundations of behavior modification. (Although specific behavior modification techniques will be described, this course will not provide any actual clinical training. Also, while behavior modification is a field that includes applications with both children and adult populations, this course will focus largely on behavior modification with adults.)

Your final grade will be based on the total number of points you obtain from exams, a term project and paper, and regular participation in class activities and discussions.
