What are perspectives on Behaviorism
March 4, 2011 9:22 AM Subscribe
How does the world view Behavioral Psychology? I keep getting conflicting viewpoints on how mainstream or accepted it is. I am currently a student of Organizational Behavior Management, and even from the professors and students do I get different perspectives on how the world sees Behaviorism.

Does your field / profession ever use behavioral psychology?
Does your field / profession have a positive or negative additude towards behavioral psychology?
What reasons do you have for accepting / rejecting it?
Is the field thriving? Or is it a last reminant of a discredited field?
Is there a large effort to discredit behaviorism for political/economic reasons? Or do the members of the field collectively suffer from a persecution complex?
