What is Self-Management?
Self-Management is an evidenced-based practice based on behavior analytic principles. It is the preparation and implementation of behavior change procedures that produces desired changes in target behaviors. Self-management includes self-monitoring and self-evaluation. Self-Monitoring is the process of observing and collecting data on your own behavior. The last step is to self-evaluate or monitor and determine how effectively the procedures you implemented changed the target behavior (i.e., decrease or increase contingent on the behavior).
