[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT:
In (perhaps) one of the largest series, treatment of 30 cases of writer's cramp by behaviour therapy alone, has been studied over a period of 5 years. The therapy techniques used were (i) relaxation therapy and retraining (ii) relaxation therapy, retraining and systematic desenetization. The outcome of both the techniques are very encouraging and show definite improvement in all cases. Various factors responsible for degree of improvement and the duration of treatment are discussed.
