Mulick, James A.; Meinhold, Patricia M.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v96 n3 p327-33 Nov 1991
This response to a paper by Guess and Carr (EC 602 212) on stereotypy and self-injury in the disabled evaluates their interpretation of the literature, use of conceptual terms, and treatment of behavior analysis principles. They are critiqued for using descriptive analogies and intervening variables to support their theory. (DB)
