Behavior Modification: The study of consequences and the influences they have on the behaviors which preceded them. 

Behavior modification is a very practical and applied area of psychology, useful to anyone concerned about better managing his/her behavior and bringing out the best in others.  Behavior modification in clinical practice with children and adolescents and in school settings will be emphasized.

This course will illustrate those applied features through both experiential and formal learning, both in and out of class. Concepts such as reinforcement (negative and positive), punishment, antecedents, extinction, avoidance, and cueing will be covered.
