Relaxation training has typically been discussed as a singular procedure to be used as a therapeutic treatment technique for a wide variety of disorders. A review of the empirical literature from 1970 to 1979 is provided with an emphasis on clinical populations utilized, dependent measurement and procedural variability and lack of standardization with respect to relaxation procedures. Suggestions for future research are made which emphasize systematic evaluations of treatment components, target problems and criterion behavior change. © 1982.
