TODOROV, João Cláudio. Psychology as the study of interactions. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.spe, pp.57-61. ISSN 0102-3772.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-37722007000500011.

The problems with the variety of definitions of Psychology are analyzed, and the advantages from the point of view of Behavior Analysis, on defining Psychology as the study of organism-environment relations. Such interactions can be seen as a continuum where the passage from Psychology to Biology or to Social Sciences is often a matter of convenience. The experimental analysis of behavior uses contingencies and functional relationships as tools for the study of organism-environment relations.

Palavras-chave : definition of Psychology; behavior analysis; interactions; subdivisions of Psychology.
