Attention is drawn to the relatively high rate of breakdown of token economy programmes, and the reasons for this are considered. Reference is made to the results of a questionnaire circulated to British token economy programmes. Reasons for breakdown are considered in five categories, these being: nonexistent or poor patient selection; inadequate selection and training of nursing and ward staff; lack of definition of the functions of the supervising psychologist; poor co-operation from, and communication with, administrative staff; and active interference by the community. Solutions to these problems are suggested. The value of alternative or additional theoretical frameworks in promoting positive control of token systems is discussed. © 1973.
