Summary "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)
