Progress in Behavior Modification, Volume 14 covers the developments in the study of behavior modification. The book discusses the research on the education of autistic children; behavioral approaches to drug abuse; and behavior therapy and community living skills. The text also describes the behavior modification in New Zealand; the critical treatment parameters in attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity and their application in applied outcome research; and the nutritional approaches to behavior modification. Punishment, a concept that is no longer necessary, is also considered. Psychologists and psychiatrists will find the book invaluable.
