Behavioral Modification Model

Behavior modification is a treatment model that uses observation or experience to demonstrate behavior change techniques to improve one's behavior. It can be to alter one's behaviors and reactions to stimuli through positive and negative reinforcement of adaptive behavior and/or the reduction of maladaptive behavior through punishment, and also it can be by therapy.

These programs are based on trying to break the person mentally. The idea is to break their character through peer pressure, and it also relies on telling the person they are bad and degrading as an individual. The concept is to break the spirit into something that can be rebuilt. Sometimes it works, as a small percentage will rebuild into a harmless person.

Edward Thorndike appeared to be the first one to use the term behavioral modification in 1911. Lately, the concept of punishing someone has had many critics, though these critiques tend not to apply to negative punishment (time-outs) and normally apply to the addition of some disgusting event.

Pear and Martin indicate that there are seven characteristics to behavior modification, they are:

  • There is a strong accent to define problems in terms of behavior that can be measured somehow.
  • The treatment techniques are ways of altering one's current environment to help that person function better.
  • The methods and rationales can be described precisely.
  • The techniques are often applied in everyday life.
  • The techniques are based a lot on principles of learning - specifically operant conditioning and respondent conditioning.
  • There is a strong emphasis on a scientific demo that a particular method was responsible for a particular behavior change.
  • There is a strong emphasis on responsibility for everyone involved in a behavior modification program.

More Info

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people.
