Psychotherapy by reciprocal inhibition by Joseph Wolpe( Book )

48 editions published between 1958 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1958, Wolpe published his Psychotherapy by Reciprocal Inhibition, in which he revealed his ideas. He claimed that it was possible to treat the symptoms of anxiety or phobias by teaching patients to relax and confront their fears. The book was met with skepticism and disdain by the psychiatric community. Being trained in the psychoanalytical tradition, they believed that Wolpe's method did not tackle the "cause" of neuroses, but only the surface of it. They believed the therapy would inevitably lead to "symptom substitution" and not a cure. Wolpe's therapy, however, proved successful and has continued to be used in modern psychotherapeutic treatment. Wolpe developed a theory of learning called reciprocal inhibition. Reciprocal behaviors are behaviors that compete with each other. If one situation elicited a certain response, the new stimulus introduced could elicit a different response, and the old reaction could be weakened. As the subject increasingly reacts in an alternative way, new learning occurs and the old behavior gradually disappears completely. Wolpe also worked on assertiveness training. The idea behind this is similar to systematic desensitization. People who are unassertive are similar to people with phobias, only the fear is of confrontation or rejection. These people unlearn their fears and gradually learn new behaviors. Wolpe taught them how to relax in a stressful situation and how to conquer their fears."--Www.newworldencyclopedia.org June 2011

Behavior therapy techniques; a guide to the treatment of neuroses by Joseph Wolpe( Book )

24 editions published between 1966 and 1968 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The techniques of habit termed "behavior therapy" have been adopted by a constantly increasing number of psychotherapists [...] but the gathering of information about them by both students and practitioners is still a matter of some difficulty. The authors have accordingly prepared this book to serve as a source of instruction on the practical approach to the neurotic patient as an organism whose habits of reaction are completely determined by his constitution and by the impact of his environment upon him, and on the treatment of neuroses by the techniques that have been based on principles of conditioning (learning). The book shows that therapy is conducted with a general understanding of the patient's reactions and problems, and that he frequently has to be disabused of moralistic notions and other unnecessary sources of anxiety before conditioning procedures can be successfully carried out. A matter that has hitherto been given scarcely any attention is the tremendous extent of the difference of attitude between behavior therapists and "dynamically oriented" therapists. The characterization of this difference of attitude, and instruction for its development and use in therapy, are among the most important features of the book

Inleiding tot de gedragstherapie by Dirk Hermans( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in Dutch and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dit boek is al bijna vijftig jaar hét standaardwerk over achtergronden en praktijk van de gedragstherapie. Het is bedoeld voor de nieuwkomer die zich wil oriënteren in dit vakgebied, voor de cursist die zich de principes van de gedragstherapie eigen wil maken én voor de ervaren gedragstherapeut die wil bijblijven met de nieuwe ontwikkelingen in theorie en praktijk. Daarnaast is het boek zeer geschikt als naslagwerk voor beoefenaars van andere disciplines in de geestelijke gezondheidszorg. De eerste druk van Inleiding tot de gedragstherapie verscheen in 1971. Deze zevende druk is een grondige herziening van de zesde druk uit 2007. Allereest door de beschrijving van nieuwe inzichten, theorieën en methoden. Maar ook door de veranderde structuur: eenvoudiger en meer didactisch, dankzij een stapsgewijze verdieping in elk hoofdstuk. Deel 1 van Inleiding tot de gedragstherapie beschrijft grondslagen van de gedragstherapie. De geschiedenis en de wetenschappelijke basis van de gedragstherapie komen aan bod, net zoals de meest recente ontwikkelingen. Deel 2 licht de praktijk van de gedragstherapeut toe. Elke fase krijgt daarbij een apart hoofdstuk: informatieverzameling en werkrelatie, holistische theorie en probleemselectie, functieanalyse, plannen en uitvoeren, en evaluatie. De auteurs zijn Dirk Hermans, Filip Raes en Hans Orlemans. De eerste twee zijn als hoogleraar psychologie/gedragstherapie verbonden aan de KU Leuven. Beiden doen onderzoek naar de grondslagen en praktijk van de gedragstherapie. Hans Orlemans was één van de grondleggers van de gedragstherapie binnen ons taalgebied
Comparative psychotherapy; an experimental analysis by Adolph O Di Loreto( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book details the first comparative study under controlled conditions of the three major schools of psychotherapy-client-centered therapy, behavioral or systematic desensitization therapy, and rational-emotive therapy. The study was organized to compare the effectiveness of these distinct forms of counseling with two distinct personality types-introverts and extroverts-in the treatment of two specific homogeneous problems-interpersonal anxiety and general anxiety. The study was reviewed by experts representing each of the schools of thought, and critiques are included as part of the total book. Each school of therapy was evaluated to determine which was most effective with what type of subject. In this study, client-centered therapy proved to have the best results in reducing anxiety with extroverts, while the rational-emotive approach worked best with introverts. The therapy that had the greatest breadth, in terms of effectiveness for both kinds of clients, was systematic desensitization. This remarkable study should have far-reaching influence in the practical use of psychotherapy, and is essential reading for all professionals and psychology students who plan to enter the area of counseling. Instructors can use this book as a basic text or as a supplement to all introductory courses in clinical or counseling psychology offered at the senior/graduate level."--Provided by publisher
