Example text

Commitments to "diagnosis" before treatment or to "selection" both reinforce the fixed position or status of existing treatments. This is inappropriate in a field where little solid knowledge about the relationship between patient-treatment interactions exists. These commitments further the illusion that once a patient is diagnosed or selected, differential treatment will be forthcoming. An honest look at clinical practice reveals that in most instances differential treatment does not follow from differential categorization based on psychological tests.

Work in personality, child development, studies of stress, and the like). Still, within the clinical framework a number of research questions remain. The previous discussion indicated that psycho­ logical testing, like other diagnostic procedures, may obstruct the person's initial effort to do something about his difficulties. In fact, the actual effects of psychological tests on the person's subsequent response to treatment may be directly investigated. In a related form of research, Frank (1965) and his co-workers (Frank et al, 1959; Frank et ai, 1963) have been studying the interaction of patient expectations and response to treatment.

Modification of maladaptive, anxiety-reducing behavior could very well result in the appearance of another maladaptive response, fairly high in the person's behavior repertoire, which may persist because of its ability to reduce anxiety (Lazarus, 1965). An example of the inappropriate selection of the specific behavior modification procedure is most dramatically seen in those cases where the client ends up being even more disturbed after the treatment. For example, even though there are instances in which aversive conditioning has proven to be quite successful (Eysenck, 1964; Ullmann & Krasner, 1965), there are several cases reported in the literature where it has failed miserably (Beech, 1960; Thorpe & Schmidt, 1963) apparently because it was the inappropriate procedure to use in these particular cases.
