A family operant therapy approach :the treatment of adolescents on probation.

The present study attempted to explore the effective- ness of family operant therapy when used in conjunction with a sample of adolescents on probation from Fresno County. The theoretical underpinnings of this project represent an assimilation of several somewhat disparate areas of past research. In order to clarify the purpose and substance of the current study it is therefore essential briefly to review the following: the problem of juvenile delinquency, non-professionals as therapists, family therapies, behavior modification, token economies and family operant therapy.
