It guides the reader through the various stages, showing them what to include in their programme, when, why and how. Included in the book is a section on what to do when things go wrong on your programme. It also shows how the methodologies of behaviourism and psychotherapy are combined to give a synergetic effect, with all other methods supporting these by applying calming and performance-enhancing strategies.
