Part of the The Springer Behavior Therapy Series book series (PBTS)


Cognitive strategies as described by Gagné and Briggs are similar to Skinner’s (1968) self-management behaviors. The self-instructional training regimen is designed to teach such cognitive strategies and self-management skills; to teach clients “how” to think. In a number of laboratories an exploration of the potential therapeutic value of self-instructional training procedures with various other clinical populations has begun. Examples of three of these populations are now offered.
