The Use of Positive Reinforcement to Strengthen a Client's Commitment to Aversion Therapy.
Kurlychek, Robert T.
Psychology: A Quarterly Journal of Human Behavior, v16 n2 p21 Sum 1979

The addition of a positive reinforcement system whereby the client is rewarded for engaging in aversive therapy is proposed. (Author)
