Behavioral Psychotherapy

  • H. J. Eysenck
Part of the Applied Clinical Psychology book series (NSSB)


Behavioral psychotherapy, also sometimes known as behavior therapy or behavior modification, arose as an alternative to psychodynamic psychotherapy (Kazdin, 1978; Schorr, 1984). These two histories of behavioral psychotherapy give an excellent introduction to the topic, and they are written from a neutral point of view, which makes the account as objective as possible. Both are based on interviews with surviving exponents of the developing science, as well as on a thorough reading of the literature. This chapter, written as it is by one who played a part in this development, is of necessity somewhat more subjective and limited.
