Abstract

268 members of the American Psychological Association's Division of Clinical Psychology returned questionnaires (out of 500 sent) assessing professional activities. Both university and nonuniversity behaviorists as compared with nonbehaviorists in these same settings were more active with regard to (a) journal publications, (b) published chapters/books, and (c) formal papers/symposia/colloquia presentations. University nonbehaviorists, however, provided more clinical supervision, and nonuniversity nonbehaviorists engaged in considerably more direct client contact than did those of a behavioral orientation in these settings. Results are discussed with regard to scientist-professional activities and training in behavior modification. (13 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
