The three-volume Encyclopedia of Behavior Modification and Cognitive Behavior Therapy provides a thorough examination of the components of behavior modification, behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and applied behavior analysis for both child and adult populations in a variety of settings. Although the focus is on technical applications, entries also provide the historical context in which behavior therapists have worked, including research issues and strategies. Entries on assessment, ethical concerns, theoretical differences, and the unique contributions of key figures in the movement (including B. F. Skinner, Joseph Wolpe, Aaron T. Beck, and many others) are also included. No other reference source provides such comprehensive treatment of behavior modification—history, biography, theory, and application.

"A welcome complement to other reference sources that cover clinical psychology and therapeutic applications, this encyclopedia is broader in scope. . . . It has a volume each on adult and child clinical applications and a third on educational applications, the latter particularly valuable for classroom and school contexts. . . . This source belongs in all libraries offering majors and graduate degrees in clinical social work, psychology, medicine, and allied health fields. . . . Highly recommended."
