Differences and Deficits in Psychological Research in Historical Perspective: A Commentary on the Special Section
Cole, Michael
Developmental Psychology, v49 n1 p84-91 Jan 2013
This commentary traces discussions of psychological differences and deficits from the mid-1950s to the current day, positioning the disciplinary discussions in the social-historical context in which they took place. The challenges of assessing diagnoses of deficit and the potential harms that result when misdiagnosis is implemented as social policy pervade the discussion over time. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
