The ABCs of Human Behavior: Behavioral Principles for the Practicing Clinician
Issues in cognition became the focus of case conceptualization and intervention planning for most therapists. But as the new third-wave behavior therapies begin to address weaknesses in the traditional cognitive behavioral models-principally the modest effectiveness of thought stopping and cognitive restructuring techniques-basic behavior principles are once again attracting the interest of front-line clinicians. Many of today's clinicians, though, received their training during the years in which classical behaviorism was not a major part of clinical education.

I crashed the car because it was my "karma", it was "meant to be", that sort of nonsense. Now that I'm "middle aged" I search for ordinary explanations for "magical" or extraordinary events. For example; my wife called just as I was thinking about her wonderful to be su It's so not magical that it's magical.
For example; my wife called just as I was thinking about her wonderful to be sure , not due to psychic connection, but rather born of coincidence i. I think of her often and she calls me often. My brain is "hardwired" for pattern recognition and my cognitive facility is biased to attribute significance to events that confirm certain intuitions and filter out stimuli that counters said intuitions. To me, that's so much more powerful than "she caught my vibes".
I know it sounds like a drag. But to me the ordinary, simple and plausible explanations are my new magical. Mostly because they have actual explanatory and even predictive power, and to my current "get er done" way of thinking, that's more magical than what typically passes for magic. Radical Functional Contextual Behaviorism is the pinnacle tantric yoga of this "get er done" approach explaining and predicting, and dare I say it -manipulating- human behavior not necessarily a bad thing in the context of psychotherapy provided its transparent and non-coercive.

I'm willing to go with what works. And Behavioral Therapy really works for a lot of really difficult to treat stuff. Particularly when delivered with empathy, connection and genuine unconditional positive regard. The book is kind of unusual in the sense that it explicitly covers behavioral therapy techniques in a comprehensive, step by step way. I say it's unusual, because behavioral therapy even the functional contextual variety is typically discussed from within a manual of another broader modality e.
Practical and easy to read, the book walks clinicians through both common sense and clinical examples that help them learn to use behavioural principles to observe, explain, and influence behaviour in a therapeutic setting.
