Behavior modification is the process of changing patterns of human behavior over the long term using various motivational techniques, mainly consequences (negative reinforcement) and rewards (positive reinforcement). The ultimate goal is to swap objectionable, problematic, or disagreeable behaviors with more positive, desirable behaviors. Behavior modification works with just about everyone, and has many potential applications, from improving a child’s behavior to motivating employees to work more efficiently.
Behavior modification is also used often to treat the obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), irrational fears, drug and alcohol addiction issues, generalized anxiety disorder and separation anxiety disorder.
It’s easy to make a change. The hard part comes in making the change stick. Anyone can say they’re going to quit smoking and then ignore one or two cravings, or commit to an exercise regimen and then hit the gym twice in a week. The challenge is to stick with the new habit, which is not so easy. This is where behavior modification comes in.
Behavior modification says that we can change the way we act, or react, by learning, and by attaching consequences to our actions. You can’t force someone to change his or her behavior. You can, however, motivate them to change their behavior by changing the environment and offering incentives.
The changes can include a change of thought pattern and auto response system.
The modification process involves NLP as a fast route to changing and modifying ones behaviour, emplying methods of Anchoring, altering submodalities and more.
