Chapter 1 Notes
Characteristics that define behaviour:
Behaviour is what people do and say; described as action verbs
Behaviour have one or more dimensions that can be measured
oFrequency; number of times a behaviour occurs
oDuration; time from when an instance of the behaviour starts until it stops
oIntensity; physical force involved in the behaviour
Behaviours can be observed, described and recorded by others or by the person engaging
in the behaviour
Behaviours have an impact on the environment, physical and social (other people and
ourselves)
Behaviour is lawful; its occurrence systematically influenced by environmental events
Behaviours may be overt or covert
oOvert behaviour is an action that can be observed and recorded by a person other
than the one engaging in the behaviour
oCovert behaviours, also called private events, are not observable to others (ex.
Thinking)
Behaviour modification is the field of psychology concerned with analyzing and
modifying human behaviour
oAnalyzing means identifying the functional relationship between environmental
events and a particular behaviour to understand the reasons for behaviour or to
determine why a person behaved as he or she did
oModifying means developing and implementing procedures to help people change
their behaviour. It involves altering environmental events so as to influence
behaviour. Bmod are developed by professionals and used to change socially
significant behaviours, with the goal of improving some aspect of a persons life
