Abstract

Assessed a self-reward contracting procedure intended to facilitate the completion of self-administered desensitization. 24 self-referred snake phobics received either (a) self-administered desensitization, (b) self-administered desensitization with self-reward contracting, or (c) a self-administered placebo with self-reward contracting. Results show that the self-reward procedure significantly impaired the amount of time and number of sessions that Ss devoted to their self-instructional manuals.
