A researcher took a sample of

100 people with severe agoraphobia (fear of open spaces). Half of them were assigned in a group where cognitive behavior therapy was administered and remaining half in a group were given behavioral therapy for treatment.



In one group, participants were shown an attractive criminal and asked to judge his guilt, and then shown an unattractive criminal and were

asked to judge his guilt.



A researcher aims to test the effectiveness of Positive reinforcement     and    Visual

prompts.    He    selected  two




groups of children, where each group included 10 children. The aim was to assess how both these techniques help in reducing anger issues in these children. In group A, the children were rewarded with candies whenever they demonstrated a non-angry behavior such as smiling, whereas in group B, children were angry and they were shown funny pictures where it was tested whether the happy visual prompts make children laugh. It was seen that positive reinforces were more effective in dealing with anger issues as compared to visual prompts.



Ali, a 7 years old child had 5- year history of seizures and diagnosis of autism and brain damage. He experiences 5 seizures per day despite taking medications. In order to reduce the number of seizures, an interruption process was introduced in which child was asked ‘NO’ in case of hands shaking and trembling. Moreover, child’s shoulder was also hold. After this, interruption process was suspended for some time. When child did not receive any treatment then again seizures appear. Again, interruption process was re- introduced for a period of 6 months. A dramatic change was observed in reduction of child’s seizures due to introduction of treatment.
