Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume addresses the topic of behavioral medicine treatment and research with developmentally disabled individuals. The involvement of behavioral medicine specialists with handicapped persons has been expanding over the years given advances in biomedical research, refinements in treatment technology, and the growing alliance of psychologists and physicians. This book focuses on the important contributions of applied behavior analysis to assessment, intervention, and evaluation. Behavior analysis has been instrumental in designing habilitation programs for developmentally disabled persons, thus helping to shape and define the field of behavioral medicine as a whole. Both because of the integrative review of experimental findings and the critical appraisal of research, these contributions will serve as an important reference source in behavioral medicine.
