Counterconditioning versus Relaxation in the Desensitization of Test Anxiety
Laxer, R. M.; Walker, Keith
J Counseling Psychol, 17, 5, 431-435, Sep '70
Hypotheses that efficacy of systematic desensitization could be attributed to anxlety reduction as a result of relaxation training, to extinction of nonreinforced fear responses, or to operation of placebo factors were tested as alternatives to counterconditioning hypothesis. Test anxiety reduction was found only for subjects given relaxation training. At least part of effectiveness must be attributed to effects of relaxation training. (Author)
