Behavior modification is the field of study that focuses on using principles of learning and cognition to understand and change people's behavior (Sarafino, 1996). Although not all experts in this field would include cognitive processes in the definition (see Lee, 1992; Sweet & Loizeaux, 1991; Wolpe, 1993), these processes have been widely adopted and applied by behavior modification professionals since the early 1970s (Dobson, 1988; Kazdin, 1978; Ma-honey, 1993; Williams, Watts, MacLeod, & Mathews, 1988).
