Joseph Wolpe (1958) extended these findings to the analysis of human emotional behavior. His studies of fears and phobias led to the development of various classical conditioning techniques to reduce the debilitating emotional reactions of fear, anger, and anxiety and their accompanying behavior problems, such as smoking, overeating, sexual deviance, and phobic reactions to a variety of environmental conditions. Albert Bandura's (1962) work on vicarious learning through modeling and imitation, "self-efficacy," and self-control added a third pillar to the foundations of behavior modification and therapy.

These procedures are highly applicable to programs through the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation and university career counseling centers. 8.

Also, the behavior therapist can obtain hospital privileges to assist the medical professional on such issues as medication compliance, pain management, and other such behavioral and somatic issues.

Behavioral contracting for specific week-to-week goals is a frequent treatment approach to develop client compliance (Goldiamond, 1975a; Homme, Csayni, Gonzales, & Rechs, 1970). In this specific contract, the therapist and client agree to accomplish certain goals by the next session or by several sessions as enroute objectives to the longer term therapeutic objective. Contracts are then revised or rewritten as the short-term goals are achieved as specified in the evaluation. A great deal of organization is needed in the conduct of the behavior therapy private practice.
