After describing the difficult questions that need to be addressed in order to evaluate the intrusiveness of a procedure, the authors list nine factors that should be considered. Addressing these questions should make it easier for behavioral clinicians to make important decisions about the relative intrusiveness of alternative procedures. The fifth step is to perform a risk-benefit analysis. The authors point out the deficiencies of the traditional fixed hierarchy approach and make a convincing argument for performing a careful and measured risk-benefit analysis before selecting the treatment of choice (Spreat, Lipinski, Dickerson, Nass, & Dorsey, 1989).

The authors also claim that an important factor in recommending a procedure is its acceptability to the program implementer, and they make numerous specific suggestions on how to increase treatment acceptability. Swiezy and Matson next discuss the issue of coordinating the efforts of different professionals in order to establish a team effort. They concur with Kazdin (1984) that the involvement of paraprofessionals is often essential for successful program implementation. Therefore, the skills of paraprofessionals are crucial to program success, because most problems exist in the natural setting rather than the therapist's office.
