9781107014916: Delta Theory and Psychosocial Systems: The Practice of Influence and Change

Delta Theory establishes the foundation for a true scientific applied psychology, a theory of how human influence induces change in others. Delta Theory is unified and universal, applying to all cultures, historical periods, and goals for change. It integrates concepts and research from psychology, sociology, anthropology, evolution theory, philosophy, psychoneurology, cognitive science, and cultural-historical-activity theory. Yet Delta Theory is clear, economical, and elegant, with a full exposition of tactics for its practices. Rich examples are drawn from professional practices, but also from the creation and operations of criminals, healing ceremonies of indigenous peoples, and cross-species comparisons. This book ultimately seeks to describe how influence works, how it could be improved, and how it can be resisted.

Book Description:

Delta Theory proposes a unified scientific theory of influence and change - all therapies, teaching, child-rearing, coaching, corrections, and rehabilitations, from medical to twelve-step programs in a universal theory of dynamics and practice. Delta Theory is accessible to a general intellectual audience that realizes they are both practitioners and victims of influence.
