About this title

Synopsis:

From aggression to amnesia and from schizophrenia to shock therapy, here are 10,500 alphabetically arranged entries that cover all the major topics in psychology.
Guided by an eminent team of seven consultant editors--including Robert J. Sternberg, Harvey R. Schiffman, Dr. Leonard W. Hamilton, Daniel P. Kimble, and Dr. Robert Spitzer--Andrew Colman provides in A Dictionary of Psychology clear, concise definitions of terms and concepts in such areas as sensation and perception, cognition, learning and skills, mental disorders, emotion and motivation. Colman not only covers all areas of psychology, but he also explains relevant technical words from other disciplines used by psychologists, including psychiatry, neuroanatomy, and statistics--subjects that are often excluded from single-volume dictionaries of psychology. Likewise, this is the only dictionary to offer extensive coverage of psychoanalysis, with clear explanations of terms introduced by Freud, Jung, Adler, Erikson, Kohut, Lacan, Reich, and others. There is comprehensive coverage of phobias and phobic stimuli and mental disorders, as well as a list of over 700 abbreviations and symbols commonly used in psychology. All entries are detailed and explicit, with word origins and illustrations given where necessary. Moreover, the entries are far more extensively cross-referenced than customary. For example, the entry "visual illusion" includes cross-references to every particular visual illusion described in the dictionary, and the entry for "cranial nerve" directs the reader to all twelve of the human cranial nerves, each of which has its own separate entry.
Written by a leading authority and completely up to date, the Dictionary is an ideal resource for students of psychology, professional psychologists, and the general reader.
