Abstract:

TEmpirical research and theory produced on a nine-year progral designed to investigate the factors producing defensive behavior within groups is summarized. The structure and assumptions of a comprehensive defense-reductive theory of social behavior are briefly described, and related to the emperical research performed under three contracts. A summary is given of instances of practical tests of the theory in indutrial, community, and educational settings. The research program is viewed in part as a test of a tri-partite theory of research technology.
