Progress in Behavior Modification, Volume 9 covers the developments in the study of behavior modification. The book discusses the future of behavior therapy; an examination of the rationale and treatment effectiveness of overcorrection; and the therapeutic innovations and emerging conceptual challenges in the behavioral treatment of test anxiety. The text also describes the conceptual and empirical status of rational-emotive therapy; the behavior modification procedures for training chronically institutionalized schizophrenics; and the behavior modification of the elderly. The behavioral assessment and training of children's social skills are also considered. Psychologists, psychiatrists, and educators will find the book invaluable.
