      • PROCEDURE=  1) Examined Peter (2yrs 10 mths). Played in cot with beads while was shown a white rat
        • 2) Peter screamed and moved away. When rat touched his beads, P protested
          • 3) Next day, his fear was generalised to other objects like rabbit(more scared of it than rat)
    • CONCLUSION= Both SLT and classical conditioning helped to decondition P
