Mulick, James A.; Kedesdy, Jurgen H.
Mental Retardation, v26 n4 p223-29 Aug 1988
The article explores the paradoxical relationship between normalization ideology and behavior analysis as reflected in techniques used in the treatment of self-injurious behavior (SIB) in mentally retarded individuals. Ideology should be evaluated carefully for its effects on science policy to prevent undesirable limits on research and treatment. (Author/JW)
