 PsycINFO is one of the databases that is largely an "index"--that is, it includes listings of many articles that aren't available there in full text.  

An index enables researchers to learn of the the existence of relevant articles, which you can then get from other databases or via document delivery.

If that is indeed the case with the article you're asking about, there are a couple things you can do:

--You can look for the journal title (not the article title) using the library catalog or the electronic journal tool to find out which databases have the full text of the journal that published your article.

--If none of our databases have the article you need, you can use ILLiad, the library's automated interlibrary loan system where you can request articles and track the status of your requests.
