Behavioral Science

  • William B. Long
  • Jerry L. Authier
  • Evelyn R. Alperin


Perhaps of all the topics in this book, behavioral science is the most controversial, the least traditional, the broadest, the most poorly understood and accepted, and yet the newest and most important. With an adequate understanding of the many practical aspects of behavioral science and an acquisition of its important basic skills, a family physician will be well equipped to utilize his scientific skills in treating patients.
