In the ?eld of abnormal psychology, too often data are collected and presented in terms of, or in relation to, some overall "theory of behavior," which they are then used to support or disprove. Although such ?ndings are important in their own right, these data are nevertheless mainly used to support or to undermine the theory, which remains the real focus of interest throughout. An attempt has been made here to reduce this kind of bias. The aim of this book is to consider applications of the scienti?c principles of psychology to the ?eld of abnormality, exempli?ed by selected studies involving the measurement and the manipulation of disordered behavior.
