Ed. by Donald J. Levis.
This classic work from 1970 reviews main concepts and research in behavioral therapy and evaluates different orientations within the field. It will be of interest to clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other mental health specialists. An introduction reviews the history, principles, and theory of the field. Then, each contributor reviews a behavioral therapy orientation and comments on one of the other orientations. The orientations covered include operant procedures, token economies, Pavlovian conditioning, stimulus and response control and desensitization, and implosive therapy. There is also material on implications of social learning theory for the practice of psychotherapy. Levis is professor of psychology at Binghamton University and Charter Fellow of the American Psychological Society.
