It examines hypothesis-based interventions for clinical decision making, functional analytic psychotherapy, and interbehavioral psychology. For each theory, a recognized expert in the field offers a thorough description - including underlying assumptions, scope and structure, and specific assertions - and highlights important features. O'Donohue and Krasner set the stage with an overview of what theory is in general and what role it plays in science, discussing influential figures from Skinner to Laudan.
