Ideal for the freshman- and sophomore-level Behavioral Modification or Applied Behavior Analysis course, Miller's 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 how to apply concepts to the real world.
