Home > Mental Health > 8 Useful Behavior Modification Techniques for Adults
Adult behavior modification is the method of
changing the way an adult reacts either
physically or mentally to a given stimulus. This
process can be applied to anything from
stopping a drug addiction to making your bed
each morning. Behavior modification is a
treatment method, and it is based on the values
of operant conditioning. The undesirable
behaviors are exchanged with more suitable
ones through various techniques and methods.
B.F. Skinner, the father of behavior modification
science, conducted scientific research in the
1950s that involved training rats through
rewards and punishments. His practices and
theories continue to influence schools of
psychology and practicing psychologists to this
day.
Behavior modification has been successfully used to treat anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder
(OCD), enuresis (bed-wetting), among others. Some methods of behavior modification require
preparation and attention, where others are just common sense. Find out what you can do to
shake your nasty habit today.
1. Positive Reinforcement
Some of us want to know, What do I get out of this? Positive reinforcement answers this question.
This practice involves the addition of a gratifying experience in reaction to something someone
has done. Many adults respond to praise and recognition. Treat yourself to a night out every time
you avoid the behavior you are trying to modify.
2. Negative Reinforcement
With negative reinforcement, the method of training involves a negative reinforce. This could be a
behavior or event with which the reinforcing properties are associated with its removal. Opposing
behavior is shunned by performing an action, and as a result of this, the action is repeated prior to
the adverse reaction.
3. Punishment
One of the toughest things we can do as adults is to punish ourselves. Punishment is a form of
behavior modification that discourages the unwanted act by application of an unpleasant stimulus
in reaction to the behavior.
4. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
Also known as Meridian Tapping, EFT is based on the premise that negative emotions or
behaviors stem from short circuits in the bodys energy system. These techniques are done by
drumming on certain areas on the body to balance and release the short circuit.
5. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
The NLP technique is a study of communication; how we communicate with others and ourselves,
and how that affects the way we react and behave. This communication can be altered through
submodalities, metaprograms, etc. to change a behavior.
6. Meditation
Meditation has been used for centuries to help the brain make physiological changes for the
better. Not only does it improve brain function and memory, it enables whole brain
synchronization, a process that allows the left brain portion to interact and be in focus with the

right brain hemisphere. Meditation is one of the best behavior modification systems in existence. It
alleviates anxiety and depression, causing a remarkable improvement in a persons sense of well-
being.
7. Dont Give it Attention
You can modify a behavior through ignoring the act. By ignoring the behavior you will often reduce
its tendency for appearing again. Dont give someone attention who is engaging in a behavior that
needs stopped.
8. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a psychotherapeutic approach that addresses maladaptive behaviors through a number of
goal-oriented systematic procedures. The common hallmarks of CBT are the focus on the here
and now, a structuring of the sessions and path, a guidance role by the therapist, and on
alleviating both the patients vulnerability and worrisome symptoms.
