9780131181175: Psychology for Living: Adjustment, Growth, and Behavior Today (8th Edition)

For courses on Adjustment, Coping, Personal Growth, Mental Health, and Applied Psychology. This careful and balanced blend of personalization, advice, and science is intended for those who are interested in applying psychological insights and principles to their own lives as a way of achieving a better understanding of themselves and of living more effectively. By underscoring several important societal (not just personal) themes, the reader is compelled to focus on other people as much as the self. Content is drawn from the psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and humanistic viewpoints and includes contributions from clinical, personality, social, and developmental psychology, as well as from cognitive, biological, and health psychology.
