Theories of Person-Environment Interaction: Implications for the College Student. Monograph 10.
Walsh, W. Bruce
The basic objective of this monograph is to present and review a few selected theories of person-environment interaction which have stimulated meaningful research. Five theoretical viewpoints are included: Barker's theory of behavior settings, the subcultural approach, Holland's theory of personality types and model environments, Stern's need x press=culture theory, and Pervin's transactional approach. These theories are, for the most part, psychological in nature, but most of them evidence some interdisciplinary anchorings. Research related to the theories is synthesized and the theories are compared. In addition, the theoretical and applied implications of each theory are discussed and evaluated. Lists of references and ACT publications conclude the volume. (Author/KM)
