Behavior Modification: The Human Effort.
Bradfield, Robert H., Ed.
To present the ideas and research of outstanding behaviorists which is directly related to the education of children, the authors tried to include a diverse group of educational situations. Two articles give an overview of behavior modification, while five educational applications are discussed. They concern learning problems, language acquisition, disadvantaged preschoolers, childhood psychoses, and thinking skills. Also considered are moral issues in behavior modification, the applied science of behavior therapy, and behavior modification as a very human endeavor. (RJ)
