The Use of Paradoxical Intention: Self-Management through Laughter.
Lamb, C. Sue
Personnel and Guidance Journal, v59 n4 p217-19 Dec 1980
Paradoxical intention helps clients separate themselves from their neurotic symptoms. The client is instructed to exaggerate the symptom and finds, paradoxically, the symptom occurs less. In provocative exaggeration symptoms are described so as to evoke laughter at the very symptom that causes anxiety. (Author)
