With more than three times as many defined entries, biographies, illustrations, and appendices than any other dictionary of psychology ever printed in the English language, The Dictionary of Psychology is indeed a landmark resource. The most comprehensive, up-to-date reference of its kind, the Dictionary also maintains a user-friendliness throughout. This combination ensures that it will serve as the definitive work for years to come. With a clear and functional design and written in a highly readable style, the Dictionary offers over 30,000 entries (including interdisciplinary terms and contemporary slang), more than 125 illustrations, as well as extensive cross-referencing of entries. Ten supportive and interesting appendices, such as the Greek Alphabet, Medical Prescription Terms, and Biographies of Contributors to the Study of Psychology, augment the dictionary's usefulness. A handy How to Use This Dictionary section is also included. More than one hundred psychologists as well as numerous physicians participated as consulting editors and a dozen specialist consulting editors reviewed the material. Dr. Alan Auerbach, the American Psychological Association's de facto dictionary expert, served as the Dictionary's Senior Consulting Editor. As a final check for comprehensiveness and accuracy, independent review editors were employed to re-examine, re-review, and re-approve every entry.

"Admirably comprehensive...It should become a standard reference in the field and most likely the dictionary of first reference for students and professionals." - Ken Kister, Kister's Best Dictionaries "This dictionary was based on interviews with about one hundred psychologists, selected randomly at psychological conventions, asking them what they wanted and did not want in a dictionary of psychology. Every person interviewed wanted as many definitions as possible. More illustrations, biographies, and appendixes were requested by many. They did not want a dictionary that made them move around from page to page to find definitions, nor one that needed another dictionary to understand definitions. This dictionary attempts to meet these needs in that it has more than three times the number of defined headwords, biographies, illustrations, and appendixes of any other dictionary of psychology ever printed in English. - From the preface by Raymond J. Corsini
