Little Albert’’ learned to fear a white rat by the process of method. STUDY AND REVIEW SUMMARY Behavior is anything people do, usually in response to internal or external events. It can include overt actions that are observable by others or covert (private) activities that are not open to view. Our traits—broad and stable characteristics—are not behaviors, nor are psychological diagnoses or the outcomes of behavior, such as becoming more physically fit. Both heredity and experience affect behavioral development.

By the late 1960s, applied behavior analysis had become a formal discipline. It established journals to publish research articles focusing on ways to apply behavioral methods to socially important problems, such as those relating to education, child rearing, crime, and mental illness (Baer, Wolf, & Risley, 1968; 1987; Kazdin, 1978; Wixted, Bellack, & Hersen, 1990). By that time, the fields of behavior modification, behavior therapy, and self-management had also emerged and were developing rapidly.

For example, for the target behavior of jogging, the behavioral goal might be to increase jogging to three 1-hour sessions each week. Sometimes outcome and behavioral goals are the same; this can happen when both goals simply involve quitting a particular behavior, such as twirling one’s hair. Very often, a program’s outcome and behavioral goals are different; outcome goals are broader or less directly tied to the specific behaviors. Losing weight might be an outcome goal for a dietary target behavior, and the behavioral goal might be to reduce snacking to two servings per day.
