he field of behavioral medicine emphasizes a combined medical and behavioral approach to all organic dysfunctions. This approach assumes that both psychological and organic behaviors obey the same laws. One important aid to a behavioral analysis that can be helpful in assessing organic dysfunctions is the use of behavioral inventories. It is best to have specific inventories for a variety of organic dysfunctions. This manual includes specific survey schedules for 22 different organic dysfunctions. Whenever an organic dysfunction is targeted for behavior change, the specific survey schedule should be administered in addition to the usual behavioral inventory battery.
