PSYB45 Chapter 21 Habit Reversal Procedures
Habit Reversal: procedures used to decrease the frequency of undesirable habit
behaviours.
Habit behaviours often dont interfere to any great extent with the persons social
functioning; they tend to be more of an annoyance to the person or to significant others in
the persons life.
When the habit behaviour occurs frequently or with high intensity, the person may seek
treatment for the problem. In such cases, a habit behaviour may be seen as a habit
disorder
Three habit behaviours: nervous habits, motor tics, stuttering
Nervous habits: involve repetitive, manipulative behaviours that are believed to be most
likely to occur when the person experiences heightened nervous tension
Motor Tics: repetitive, jerking movements of a particular muscle group in the body
Vocal Tics: repetitive vocal sound that doesnt serve a social function (throat
clearing/coughing)
Tourettes Disorder: a tic disorder involving multiple motor and vocal tics
Stuttering: a type of speech dysfluency in which the person repeats words or syllables,
prolongs the sound of a word or syllable, or blocks on a word
Habit Reversal Procedures: (competing response training)
Awareness Training: client learns to identify when the habit occurs or when its about to
occur
Competing response: a behaviour incompatible with the habit behaviour
Social support: involvement of significant others

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
