Treatment of Abnormal Behavior, Part II

  • Sigmund Freud created a talk-based therapy that involves the techniques of free-association, dream analysis, and attempting to overcome resistance
  • Freud’s therapy was important in helping soldiers during WWI which legitimized the process
  • Behavior therapy does not focus on the causes of behavior, but rather uses operant and classical conditioning techniques and behavior modification to change behavior
  • Counterconditioning is a behavior therapy procedure that used classical conditioning to evoke new responses to stimuli that are triggering unwanted behaviors; includes exposure therapies and aversive conditioning
  • Mary Cover Jones, the mother of behavior therapy, created desensitization therapy to reduce/eliminate fears
  • Joseph Wolpe added to Cover Jones’ work and created systematic desensitization
