Behaviour Therapy is based on the application of principles of learning to change human behaviour. In the last two decades it has grown into a promising scientific discipline. This development is exemplified by extensive research and applications. The present book provides a unifying account of its contemporary developments, linking underlying theories with practice.

This book is divided into three sections. In the first section, basic assumptions of behaviour therapy are examined and emerging trends such as radical behaviourism, cognitive behaviourism and systematic eclectism are dealt with in a systematic manner. In the second section, the techniques of behaviour therapy, their theoretical bases and applications have been illustrated with the help of empirical studies. The concluding section focuses on the contemporary issues of research and practice of behaviour therapy.

Review:

The book presents a comprehensive review of the subject. It provides practical as well as theoretical guidance to behaviour therapy. I would recommend it to professionals who practice behavioural interventions and seek to broaden their knowledge.

(The National Medical Journal of India)

It is refreshing that behaviour therapy gets a new release and a new presentation in this book which attempts to remove some of the stereotypes and presents a more balanced and scholarly view of not only ‘traditional’ behaviour therapy but also of the changes and innovations in an admittedly beneficial therapeutic procedure... A description of basic principles and techniques is followed by examples illustrative of their clinical application. Studies are presented in sufficient detail and demonstrate the process as well as the clinical usage of these procedures.... Overall, the book has been well-presented and rigorously referenced.

(Psychology and Developing Societies)

This book focuses on the contemporary issues of research and practice of behaviour therapy.
