Adjustment to physical handicap and illness; a survey of the social psychology of physique and disability by Roger G Barker ( Book )
25 editions published between 1946 and 1977 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The association of particular kinds of behavior with particular varieties of physique is a frequently observed phenomenon of human nature. In American culture, for example, it requires no extensive investigation to reveal that characteristic differences in behavior are frequently associated with differences in sex, with differences in physical maturity, and with certain differences in race. In cases where grouped data do not reveal such associations, case studies frequently show the importance of the individual's physique as a factor in his personal adjustment. It is with certain aspects of this problem that we are concerned in this publication, namely, the relation between social behavior and personality and normal and pathological variations in physical size, strength, motor ability, sensory acuity, and health. The authors' motivation in preparing this publication has been to bring together what is known in this area and to point out problems for investigation"--Preface.

Midwest and its children; the psychological ecology of an American town by Roger G Barker ( Book )
31 editions published between 1954 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is about the children of the town of Midwest U.S.A. in the middle years of the twentieth century. It describes in plain language and in concrete detail the everyday behavior of Midwest children and the ordinary circumstances of their lives as these were seen by skilled observers. The volume includes, as well, description in terms of theories and concepts of the behavior and living conditions of these children. It also contains some comparative data upon the children of the Lawton School, a school for crippled children situated in neighboring Capitol City. Parts of the book present methods which, although they were developed to meet specific requirements of the research, are believed to have significance beyond the reported findings.

The stream of behavior; explorations of its structure & content by Roger G Barker ( Book )
20 editions published between 1963 and 1965 in English and Undetermined and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The chapters of this book report the methods and results of some empirical studies of the stream of behavior; they tell of efforts to cope with the problems we have outlined, and of the successes and failures of these efforts. In one respect the studies tell the same story: they find the behavior stream to consist of discrete, qualitatively different, replicated behavior units. The picture of the behavior stream that emerges from these studies is not quite the confused and confusing, infinitely varying phenomenon it has sometimes been asserted to be. Six of the eleven investigations (Chapters 3, 4, 5, 6, 9 and 11) use as their primary data two or more of the eighteen day-long specimen records which are now available. These records are identified, and sources of further information about them, are given in Appendix 1.1. Two studies (Chapters 7 and 8) use behavior setting specimen records as their primary data. These records have been published (Barker, Wright, Barker & Schoggen, 1961) and two of them are reproduced in Appendix 1.2 where the following behavior units have been marked upon them for illustrative purposes: behavior episodes (as used in Chapters 8, 9 and 10); social contacts (as used in Chapter 5), environmental force units (as used in Chapters 3 and 4), and social actions (as used in Chapter 7). The studies provide, then, evidence of the usefulness of two kinds of primary data (specimen records and recordings of talk) and of a number of analytical approaches. The studies reveal the richness of these records of behavior for many problems and they demonstrate that they have the value of true scientific specimens."

Child behavior and development, a course of representative studies by Roger G Barker ( Book )
24 editions published between 1942 and 2010 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume aims to provide foundation material for work in child psychology by presenting reports of selected studies prepared for the use of college students. The reports are not essays about research. Each of them is an account of the procedures, results, and conclusions of a particular investigation. Their purpose is to represent not only the products but also the processes of research. The editors have hoped to pack a fairly adequate reserve shelf between the covers of one volume. If that objective has been realized, the book may find use as central rather than collateral reading in courses on child psychology or educational psychology. It would then save for the instructor the role of sketching background, giving points of view, and knitting together the whole field. By way of granting to the instructor a free hand in the organization of the material, the editors have not undertaken to classify the contents. Selected bibliographies covering the field of each study have been included for the guidance of students who may wish to study further. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

Frustration and regression : an experiment with young children by Roger G Barker ( Book )
22 editions published between 1941 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Scientific readers unfamiliar with Lewinian concepts might do well to preface their approach to these experimental studies with the reading of Part I, "Formalization and Progress in Psychology" of Studies in Topological and Vector Psychology I (University of Iowa Studies in Child Welfare, 1940, Vol. 16, No. 3). Another approach would be to begin directly with Chapter II of this study, "Experimental Regression Through Frustration," reserving for later reading the theoretical sections of Studies I and II. The present researches are important in demonstrating the generalized character of the phenomenon of regression: frustration leads to primitive behavior even in areas not connected to inaccessible goals. Behavior is modified in a central fashion. This book experiments with children and their frustration and regression." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
Studies in topological and vector psychology by Kurt Lewin ( Book )
in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is a beginning study in topological psychology, enabling the student of psychology to make a fresh start in the understanding and utlization of Dr. Kurt Lewin's methods. Certain it is that all psychologists are interested in Dr. Lewin's major attempt to employ new methods of formulating and mathematizing in psychology in such a way as to retain the basic and primary demands of psychology itself. His dynamic theories lead to certain derivatives whose experimental confirmation rightly is held to be of special significance. In these earlier studies the constructs have been kept semimathematical, as against nonmathematical (which would be confusing) or a display of mathematical technicalities that become devoid of psychological meaning. The work moves forward with two feet upon the ground: one theoretical or conceptual, the other experimental. The why and the what are brought into mutual relationship; they are made to serve each other. The validity of this process rests upon its demonstrated fruitfulness. That Lewin and his colleagues are willing to attack the hard problems that lie at the heart of social psychology (although out on the periphery of psychology as revealed to most pre-Gestalt workers), is in itself encouraging"--Preface.
