What helps with anger problems

Behavior therapy


What is systematic desensitization or self-instruction, how and when should these procedures be used sensibly? Which procedures are indicated for certain disorders such as anxiety disorders and compulsions or child development disorders? What should be considered in general, e.g. when deciding on indications? The 3rd edition of the Psychotherapy Manual (PTM), first published in 1981, has retained the character of a reference work and offers: - Learners an overview of individual procedures, methods and strategies of behavior therapy, their possible uses in psychiatric and psychosomatic disorders as well as general principles of psychotherapeutic work, - Practitioners that Targeted look-up, since the presentation of the methods, their indication and contraindication and, above all, their technical implementation are presented in a very detailed and practice-relevant manner and - information about the possibilities of behavioral psychotherapy is easy to read for trained readers
