Abstract

The present case demonstrates the effectiveness of a behavioral model of graded exposure and self-control in conjunction with individual ethnic values to reduce anxiety and enhance social interaction in a previously withdrawn female. An examination of the behavioral analysis suggest that behavioral change in six previous years of treatments may have been precluded by anxiety-inducing stimuli in the treatment settings themselves. Behavioral gains were maintained at a two year follow-up.
