This article looks at interbehavioral methodology. The author establishes the working concepts of psychological fields and interbehavioral systems with their attendant specialized vocabulary. He also presents a preliminary version of a working simulation model that he presents as a new contribution to the field that demonstrates how one integrates and applies the fundamentals of a field systems approach.
