what behavior modification techniques are there?

Stages of Change: Professionals use behaviorism to modify human behaviors as part of a learning or treatment process. Simpler behavior modification techniques involve setting realistic goals, creating plans, and implementing them. Given a good plan, people succeed if they are able to stay in the action phase long enough. Success is continued through a maintenance/monitoring phase. See the "stages of change" chart.
