    • This book contains a review of the literature about avoidance, descriptions about the way psychological avoidance manifests itself in real life, and a description of an eclectical approach for decreasing avoidance. The treatment that Kantor advocates is a mixture of diverse techniques such as invoking the phobic parameter, total push, encouragement, positive feedback, reassurance, educational advice, and anxiolytic or antidepressant drug therapy.
