Behavioral Humanism


by Carl E. Thoresen — 1973

In this chapter an effort is made to reduce some of the misunderstanding about contemporary humanism and behaviorism. The intensive experimental study of individuals (N=1 design) is discussed as an "intimate" research design well suited to the study of humanistic concerns. A behavioral approach to self-control is briefly presented as one way of helping the individual gain power for self-direction. A translation of humanistic concepts into human action (response) terms is suggested.
