Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to provide a rationale and general introduction for the clinical use of behavioral techniques for relaxation. More specifically, this discussion will focus on techniques which the client may employ for the self-inducement of relaxation. So to provide a common frame of reference, we shall use the term relaxation to refer to an awakened state of hypoaroused psychophysiological functioning, experienced organism-wide or within any given bodily system.
