Imagine you have completed the certification process and you
are now a practicing therapist who specializes in behavior modification. 
A new client calls you to make an appointment and discloses that she has a
severe phobia of dogs.  She has been terrified of them since
childhood.  Her fiancé has a dog and will not part with it, which requires
her to get treatment before they are married.  Take one of the following
approaches to develop a strategy for her behavior change:



Option A: Utilize classical
conditioning techniques to develop a strategy for changing the behavior of the
client. Be specific in identifying the unconditioned stimulus, the
unconditioned response, the conditioned stimulus, and the conditioned response.
Your response should also indicate the most likely cause of this disorder from
a behaviorist perspective. Your initial post should be a minimum of 250 words
and utilize one peer-reviewed source which was published within the last five
years, cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing
Center.  Indicate in your post which option you are responding
to.   



Option B: Utilize operant
conditioning techniques to develop a strategy for changing the behavior of the
client. Be specific in identifying the reinforcement for the unwanted behavior
and the method(s) of reinforcement you will use. Your response should also

Your initial post should be a minimum of 250 words and utilize one
