Utilizes functional analysis to evaluate the thumb sucking of fraternal twin brothers. Results suggest that thumb sucking for one brother was maintained by automatic reinforcement; this was suppressed by simplified habit reversal components of awareness training, competing response training, and social support. Thumb sucking for the second brother was suppressed by remote detection. (Author/MKA)
