Behavior Therapy Foundations for Clinical Practice

  • Sheldon J. Kaplan
Part of the Applied Clinical Psychology book series


The science of psychology is a multifaceted discipline that examines all aspects of human behavior. From research, psychologists have been able to describe and explain the hows and whys of behavior based on the tenets of experimental, social, personality, physiological, and behavioral psychology. Applied psychology has sought to integrate this scientifically obtained information, formulate hypotheses, and develop methods of treating a variety of clinically significant problems in settings such as public service agencies, hospitals, schools, clinics, and private practice. Behavior therapy has, in its brief history, evolved as one of the most viable forms of applied psychology used in these settings.
