Functional Analysis in Clinical Treatment

Functional Analysis in Clinical Treatment summarizes the use and success of functional analytic approaches in the treatment of psychopathology. Functional analytic approaches focus on moderating the environmental variables that can have a large impact on the clinical problem. Behavior analytic concepts have been popular since the 1950s and now are regularly integrated into behavior therapy both for case formulation and treatment of a wide range of clinical problems.

Functional Analysis in Clinical Treatment begins with a review of the common learning processes involved in behavior change, and its relevance to case formulation and intervention with a wide range of populations. Subsequent chapters review use of functional analysis for treatment of the major DSM-IV categories. Each chapter reviews current diagnostic criteria, describes a functional analytic model of that disorder, and functional analytic assessment and intervention. Each chapter additionally includes a case study to help illustrate functional assessment, development of a treatment plan, and evaluation of outcome.

Written by practitioners with extensive clinical experience and established track records of empirical research, this book will be useful to clinicians treating a wide variety of disorders. Chapters discuss use of functional analysis in treating developmental disabilities and pediatric disorders, ADHD, substance abuse, schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety, sexual disorders, eating disorders, personality disorders, and impulse control disorders
