Basic Behaviour Therapy provides a clear and comprehensive, yet concise account of the behavioral approach to human problems. Its style follows that of Philip Barker′s Basic Child Psychiatry and Basic Family Therapy. For the newcomer to the field it explains the basic concepts behind behavioral treatments, describes the different ways these may be applied, and illustrates these points by outlining behavioral approaches to the treatment of a range of clinical problems. The novice therapist, having studied this book, will be able to develop effective interventions for many common problem behaviors. The extensive references, cited throughout, will guide the reader to further and more detailed information when it is needed. Those working in other disciplines will find this book an invaluable source of information on the various types of behavioral treatment that are now available. Clearly written, with jargon reduced to a minimum, the book is designed to be readily understood by those with no previous knowledge or experience in this field.
