Behavioral Treatments for Asthma Biofeedback-, Respondent-, and Relaxation-Based Approaches

This monograph will serve as an important reference work for researchers, practitioners, and students. It provides a review of virtually all multi-subject, controlled studies previously published; gives definitions and details regarding methodology to make the material accessible to readers who may not be familiar with asthma characteristics, research techniques, and behavioral methods; describes each study of treatment effectiveness so that readers can see important methodological or statistical differences; includes material on recently developed relevant theories, such as those involving the vagus neural pathway in the regulation of asthma attacks; and a major section refers back to details of the studies in presenting issues to consider in interpreting past studies, designing future research, and applying behavioral techniques with asthma patients.
