Guided behavior rehearsalJournal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry

Central to the program is the peer model (a non-professional trained guide) who has facility in the area in which the patient has the most difficulty. The guide models appropriate behavior of the patient in the relevant troublesome social situations. The entire program centers on the desensitization paradigm, utilizing in vivo desensitization and imaginal desensitization, together with modeling, positive reinforcement, behavior rehearsal and assertive training. Office sessions with the therapist are interspersed among those with the model. Â© 1975.
