9783319348018: Constraints of Agency: Explorations of Theory in Everyday Life (Annals of Theoretical Psychology)

This book explores the basic concept of agency and develops it further in psychology using it to better understand and explain psychological processes and behavior. More importantly, this book seeks to put an emphasis on the role of agency in four distinct settings: history of psychology, neuroscience, psychology of religion, and sociocultural theories of co-agency. In Volume 12 of the Annals of Theoretical Psychology the contributors explore a number of new ways to look at agency in psychology. This volume seeks to develop a systematic theory of axioms for agency. It describes implications for research and practice that are founded on an understanding of the person as an actor in the world. This book also has implications for research and practice across psychology's sub-fields uniting the discipline through an agentic view of the person

About the Author:

Craig Gruber is a social and developmental psychologist who is a lecturer at Northeastern University. He earned his BA from American University, an MS from Johns Hopkins University and his Ph.D. from Clark University. His research and theoretical interests reside in the area of courage, personal agency and educational settings. Another primary area of interest for Craig is his interest in the teaching of psychology, especially in developing curricula and the application of psychological theory in the classroom. In addition his writing interests involve psychology’s history as a resource of ideas for contemporary advancement of the theory and teaching. He is the co-author of Psychology, AP* Edition(PEARSON) with Phillip Zimbardo and founding editor of the Whitman Journal of Psychology, a high school journal of student research and writing. He has also published in Integrative Psychological and Behavioral Science, Culture and Psychology and Teaching of Psychology.

In 2002, his research was recognized as the top research at the Singapore International Symposium on Protection Against Toxic Substances (SISPAT). He worked urgent medical and military science and technology issues at various locations around the world, including in a theater of combat. He has published six book chapters across these various areas, including contributions to the “Textbook of Military Medicine, Medical Aspects of Chemical Warfare”, “The 71F Advantage: Applying Army Research Psychology for Health and Performance Gains” and “Pharmacological Perspectives of Toxic Chemicals and Their Antidotes.” He also has over 25 refereed publications and professional reports.
