LOPEZ BOSCH, Andrea  e  PASCUAL VERDU, Ricardo de. Functional Analysis of the Therapist's Verbal Behavior in the Treatment of an Anxiety Case. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.2, pp.181-195. ISSN 1130-5274.

In this paper, a functional analysis of the therapist's verbal behavior in a typical anxiety case is presented. Once all therapeutic utterances to be reinforced and anti-therapeutic utterances to be extinguished were listed, the extent to which the therapist's utterances had played a role in effecting the desired change in the client's verbal behavior was analyzed. In order to do so, four of the fifteen recorded sessions from the treatment were observed, and the occurrence of the desired operant chains was noted. After this, it was concluded that the therapist's performance is consistent with its aims, in that the clinical interaction is modeled as a verbal shaping process.
