Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of the phenomenal growth of psychological treatment. This text then compares the two methods of treating homosexuality, with emphasis on the mechanisms involved in such treatment that might be relevant to psychological treatment in general. Other chapters consider the application of operant conditioning methods to reinstate speech in mute schizophrenics. The final chapter deals with the significant aspect of behavior therapy in providing an opportunity for complementary activities of psychologists and psychiatrists.
