Contingency Analysis: Toward a Unified Theory for Social Work Practice.
Thyer, Bruce A.
Social Work, v32 n2 p150-57 Mar-Apr 1987
Draws from the empirical foundations of operant psychology to propose a unified theory, known as contingency analysis, for social work practice. Discusses the four propositions on which the theory is based that account for human behavior at all levels of social work practice. Shows that this approach has great utility for the profession.
