Self-Monitoring Approach for the Modification of Smoking Behavior: A Case Study.
Faherty, John K.
This paper presents a review of relevant literature on treatment approaches for the modification of smoking behavior, followed by an outline of an approach developed by the author to decrease his own rate of cigarette smoking. Studies are reviewed which have used various treatment methods: use of electric shock, satiation and/or use of cigarette smoke as an aversive technique, covert sensitization procedures, and other approaches which combined these techniques. The treatment approach described in the author's own case study is a multi-faceted, combined-technique approach to smoking reduction. An outline of this case study includes descriptions of the subject; treatment goal; intervention strategy; and recording procedure for baseline, intervention and follow-up data. Data from the self-monitoring, self-modification project are presented, along with a discussion of its effectiveness and the strengths and weaknesses inherent in the multi-faceted approach. (NRB)
