Homelessness: Abstracts of the Psychological and Behavioral Literature, 1967–1990
Psychological research on homelessness, like the problem itself, has increased dramatically over the past decade. Most early studies were either descriptive or attempted to assess the psychological antecedents of homelessness. The chronically mentally ill among the homeless were the most frequently studied population. More recent studies have focused on a much broader range of issues, mirroring the complexity of the problem.
This bibliography, with 488 abstracts and citations to the serial and dissertation literature on homelessness from 1967 to the present, increases the accessibility and availability of scientific information on homelessness to professionals and the public.
