Verbal Conditioning of Middle and Lower Socioeconomic Class Schizophrenics
Rierdan, Jill; Brooks, Robert
Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 86, 4, 369-78, Aug 77
An experiment assessed the verbal conditioning of middle and lower socioeconomic class schizophrenics and normals under conditions of social reinforcement. Results are interpreted in terms of Bateson, Jackson, Haley, and Weakland's double-bind theory, which views schizophrenic behavior as a response acquired after prolonged exposure to inconsistent patterns of verbal and nonverbal communication.
