1973 experiment on Writer's Block

Post by Doug Pardee » September 18th, 2012, 4:25 pm

Here's an article from the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis back in 1974: "The unsuccessful self-treatment of a case of “writer's block”".

A more extensive experiment was performed in 2007 and reported in the same journal: "A Multisite Cross-Cultural Replication of Upper's (1974) Unsuccessful Self-Treatment of Writer's Block".

This looks interesting, but I can't get either article to open. Not sure why.

I wonder what methods he tried?

Each article is only one page long, and is self-contained on the linked web page.
