Description

This comprehensive introduction to behavior therapy integrates the experimental, clinical, professional, and ethical facets of the field and contains applications to many disciplines, including psychology, education, social work, counseling, nursing, and rehabilitation..Michael Spiegler, a behavior therapist specializing in adult clients, teamed up with David Guevremont, a behavior therapist who treats children, in this thorough revision of his well-respected text. The book is a comprehensive introduction to behavior therapy that clearly integrates the many experimental, clinical, professional, and ethical facets of the field..Spiegler and Guevremont consistently carry the behavioral perspective throughout the book, using behavior principles -- such as shaping, prompting, reinforcement, modeling, and behavior rehearsal -- to teach behavioral principles and procedures. In addition, the authors extend the principles beyond therapy to everyday endeavors, which makes the content immediately relevant to students. .The book is simultaneously an engaging, easy-to-read introduction to the field for beginning students and a scholarly review and resource volume for advanced students.show more
