VERBAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY

a type of behavior therapy, cultivated within the 1960's, which is based upon the standards of observational learning and conditioning and integrates the concept of reciprocal determinism. The procedure consists of a thorough inventory of indicators and behavioral dilemmas, the identification of those dilemmas will be the concentration of the therapy, a cautious functional analysis of these target dilemmas, development of particular reasonable objectives for behavioral alterations for each target dilemma, and the choosing of proper therapeutic methods to reach the ascertained objective for each target.
