Progress in Behavior Modification, Volume 19 covers the developments in the study of behavior modification. The book discusses neuropsychology and behavior therapy; the progress in parent training; and the nature and measurement of agoraphobia. The text also describes childhood and adolescent obesity, with emphasis on the progress in behavioral assessment and treatment; the conceptualization, assessment, and intervention in fire emergencies; and behavioral pediatrics. The assessment of anorexia nervosa and bulimia is also considered. Psychologists, psychiatrists, and pediatricians will find the book invaluable.
