they all sound like possible good treatments..
Well, we can eliminate some.
I understand that FLOODING is where our emotions get so intense, that they get in the way of our ability to think clearly, and act deliberately.
SYSTEMATIC DESENSITIZATION is used as a treatment for fears and phobias,
It's where we take our fears,
we break it down into different sections, different levels,
and we deal with each level, one at a time.
FIXED RATIO REINFORCEMENT is where we are rewarded, after we perform an EXACT number of actions.
if we get $20, as a reward,
every time we press a button EXACTLY 20 times,
then that's "Fixed Ratio Reinforcement."
And well, I don't see how we would use that to treat smoking.
Maybe there is a way.
But I can't see it lol.
TOKEN ECONOMY is where we are rewarded with something that we can trade, for something else.
Like...when we work at our jobs,
we're rewarded with money.
And then we can trade that money for something else.
Token Economy doesn't seem to have much to do with smoking treatment.
That leaves us with Aversion Therapy.
AVERSION THERAPY is the most appropriate option here.
It's where we take a behavior,
and we pair it with something very unpleasant.
Like....drinking alcohol. That's a behavior.
If we take something that tastes REALLY nasty,
put it into someone's alcohol,
and that person drinks the alcohol...
they're going to associate alcohol with a nasty taste.
You get it?
Even though Aversion Therapy is the most appropriate option, on this list,
the truth is that it doesn't last.
It doesn't work long term.
