www.psychspace.com心理学空间网Joseph Wolpe,(April 20, 1915 – December 4, 1997)心理治療師,在南非的約翰尼斯堡執業,大學讀書期間曾讀過Pavlov的文章,自己也進行一個實驗:把貓關在實驗室的籠子裡,餵食時給予電擊,使他出現精神病。過一陣子後,他們即使餓的半死也不在籠子裡進食。接著Wolpe想把制約反射顛倒過來,讓牠們在一間看起來很不一樣的房間裡進食,在這屋子裡,它們的焦慮程度較低,因而很快就學會在這間屋子的籠子裡進食,接著在一間與實驗室的房子差不多的籠子裡進食,然後在更相像的屋裡,最後再回到實驗室去。心理学空间7i,P3NQ-J.g!R

]&s|+|BXYR0 Wolpe稱這個方法叫做「交互抑制」(reciprocal inhibition)或是『減敏感法』(desensitization)。他的理論是:如果一種抑制焦慮的愉快反應(如進食),在產生焦慮的刺激之前出現,則會減弱這些刺激的強度。在這些貓的情形中,將對食物的愉快反應與籠子、而且最終與實驗室裡的籠子產生聯繫,於是克服了在這些地方產生的焦慮。根據這樣的結果,Wolpe開始尋找一種可比較的、能夠用於病人身上的技巧(進食在人類身上不會形成足夠強烈的反應,而且在任何情況之下,也不可能在辦公室裡運用),並以此治療許多精神官能症。心理学空间8{.O.gN\'h-Vr

Dr. Wolpe was a professor of Pyschiatry at Temple University's Medical School in Philadelphia from 1965 to 1988, when he retired from that post. Concurrently he was the director of the behavior therapy unit at the Eastern Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute, also in Philadelphia. 心理学空间s&v+YJS4v0V

BKXb2Kf[V,Lt6@@0Dr. Roger Poppen, a psychologist at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and the author of ''Joseph Wolpe'' (Sage, 1995), a biography of the doctor, said: ''He was a major force in steering psychotherapy in the direction of empirical science. He inspired and encouraged the direct comparison of carefully specified psychotherapy procedures by means of clear measurements of the therapy's outcome.'' 心理学空间#OG,X:Lvh/b4pqa4i

Dr. Wolpe wrote in ''The Practice of Behavior Therapy'' that ''behavior therapy is an applied science, in every way parallel to other modern technologies, and in particular those that constitute modern medical therapeutics.'' 心理学空间#`|N E2l\"E

He also devised the psychotherapy techniques of systematic desensitization and assertiveness training, and, as Dr. Poppen put it, ''they stimulated a generation of researchers and provided the benchmarks for the development of additional methods.'' 心理学空间(]/k~r$O3[!Y)K
