Self-Control Skills Training: A Manual for Personal Development and Self-Help.
Brown, Steven D.
The purpose of this manual is to provide clients of community mental health facilities with techniques and skills to bring about changes in their own behavior and that of others in their environment. The manual has been used for two years as a textbook for a program of self-control skills training offered in San Mateo County, California, community mental health facilities. The manual provides written instruction and homework exercises in five basic self-management procedures: (a) progressive relaxation, (b) anxiety management training, (c) positive self-imagery, (d) assertiveness, and (e) operant reinforcement principles.
