Book Description

The Wiley Handbook of Contextual Behavioral Science is the first comprehensive examination of the philosophy, basic science, applied science, and applications of Contextual Behavioral Science (CBS), describing the philosophical and empirical foundation of the movement.

The handbook is organized into four sections, offering extensive breadth and depth. Section One provides an overview of the defining features and current status of CBS. The development of relational frame theory (RFT) as a functional contextualistic account of human language and cognition and its implications for education and alleviating human suffering are addressed in Section Two. Section Three more specifically focuses on contextual approaches to clinical interventions and assessment, their distinguishing characteristics, and relationship to RFT. The extension of contextual strategies to the improvement of larger social systems, such as workplaces, schools, communities, and even entire societies, in supporting human functioning and well-being are the focus of Section Four. Organized and written in such a way that it can be read in its entirety or on a section-by-section basis, the text provides a thorough grounding for students in this comprehensive approach.
