Front Cover
SAGE Publications, Feb 6, 2008 - Psychology - 261 pages
This book is based on the application of principles of learning to change human behavior. In the last two decades it has grown into a promising scientific discipline. This development is exemplified by extensive research and applications. The present book provides a unifying account of its contemporary developments, linking underlying theories with practice.

This book is divided into three sections. In the first section, basic assumptions of behavior therapy are examined and emerging trends such as radical behaviorism, cognitive behaviorism and systematic eclectism are dealt with in a systematic manner. In the second section, the techniques of behavior therapy, their theoretical bases and applications have been illustrated with the help of empirical studies. The concluding section focuses on the contemporary issues of research and practice of behavior therapy.
